Bite and dissolve foods for children

This page from the Speech and Language Therapy Department at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) explains how you can use bite and dissolve foods to help your child’s feeding.

  • „„These foods need to be bitten but then dissolve or melt easily in your child’s mouth.
  • „„They are snack foods so should not form part of a main meal.
  • If your child has any food allergies or other dietary restrictions, please check the ingredients list on the packet before giving to your child.
