Swallowing is crucial to process, digest, and ultimately use food to provide nutrients for the body.

Without nutrients, the body has a hard time being able to function for other, more demanding tasks such as gross motor and fine motor activities, and even more “executive function” tasks such as cognition, attention, focus and communication skills.

For example: “If you hadn’t eaten in 24 hours, would you be able to focus on the material that was being presented here?” Probably not. Your body’s primary nutritional needs must be first met.

How does all this relate to our children? How can they learn, think, and focus on learning if their bodies are not getting proper nutrition? Failure to feed properly will effect EVERYTHING else they do.
