Feeding difficulties can negatively impact children’s growth and development, as well as the quality of life for themselves and their families. To better understand needs and opportunities in this area, USAID Advancing Nutrition conducted a scoping review of programs supporting nutritional care of children with feeding difficulties and disabilities. The review found insufficient policies, programs, and evidence to support children with feeding difficulties and disabilities, as well as their families. This brief provides recommendations for what policymakers can do to improve identification of and service provision for children with feeding difficulties and disabilities, as well as their families.
