One billion people worldwide have a disability, and 80 percent of them live in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). The prevalence of feeding difficulties globally ranges from 25–45 percent to 33–80 percent in children without and with disabilities, respectively. We conducted a scoping review of programs supporting nutritional care of children with disability and non-disability related feeding difficulties. The non-systematic scoping review included a desk review of peer-reviewed and non-peer-reviewed literature and key informant interviews.
