The Children's Feeding Program helps change the lives of many children and families every year. Read the two stories below to hear first hand how the program has made a difference.
In April 2008, Reid choked on a slice of ham. A few weeks later, it was a piece of pasta. Then in June 2008, Reid choked on a piece of beef jerky and needed the Heimlich maneuver to dislodge the food. After the third incident, Reid stopped eating solid foods and was so terrified to take a bite that even sitting at the dinner table with his parents and 5-year-old sister was agony.

When Conor was 10 months old, his parents tried to introduce solid foods into his diet. They were only successful in getting him to eat five foods, which remained his only source of nourishment for the next four years. He ate one fruit, no vegetables and no meat. Various pediatricians told his family that this was something Conor would eventually outgrow. However, one year led to the next, and his family soon realized this wasn't a chance they were willing to take if they could find help for him. Click here to read more about Conor.
