Diet and Nutrition

Join Judith Broll, senior speech & language therapist as we learn about some of the issues around eating , drinking and swallowing with CP

Problems with eating, drinking and swallowing can sometimes be missed, even by ourselves. Spotting these, and taking action, can be vital.

A well-balanced diet is vital for the body and all its systems to function properly.

Problems with chewing, swallowing, reflux and absorption of nutrients and minerals can mean a person with CP doesn’t take in what they need. The consequences of this may include low energy levels, constipation, digestion problems and poor appetite.
