Children with cerebral palsy have difficulty eating food and tend to have poor nutrition and weight problems as a result. But why is this?
Children with Cerebral Palsy may have trouble gaining or losing weight, for various reasons. These difficulties are caused by problems with the child’s muscle tone, movement, and motor skills, making mealtimes challenging. They’re often unable to chew or swallow successfully and have digestive issues, which can lead to malnutrition and weight problems.
