Planning for the school day when your child is on nutrition support

It is useful to consider the school day and whether extra time is needed for your child. This may be as simple as making sure they eat all of their meals by ensuring they get the assistance they need or before a PE class checking that all suitable precautions have been taken to secure their feeding tubes so they do not get caught in equipment. Remember just a little forward thinking and planning can help minimise any potential disruption!

If you have any concerns, please discuss these with your healthcare professional.
