Our vision is a world where children with feeding difficulties thrive.

Our mission is to help families celebrate and embrace mealtimes, however they choose to feed.

As the only evidence-based online resource by parents, for families of kids with complex feeding difficulties in Australia, this is the table where everyone is welcome.

The SuCCEED Study and are working for change, so that every family knows the simple joy of sharing a meal, and every child thrives.

We did it!

Thank you to every one of the approximately 100 people who turned up to our first ever picnic. The sun was shining, music played and we came together as a community around the incredible children and families who are at the heart of the SuCCEED Study.

Channel 7 News even did a story on the SuCCEED Study, including footage from the picnic and starring the incredible Bernard family. Click here to watch the extended online version and please share it widely!

A huge and special thank you to all our volunteer clinicians, entertainers, and photographers for making this such a special day. We could not have done this without you.

This picnic was another important step towards improving the lives of children with complex feeding difficulties. If you would like to give us feedback on the day, share your story, help us with our research or apply to join the research team please click here to contact us.

If you had professional photos with Kat Cvet please give her a few weeks to send out the link to them. We will update with video and photos from the picnic once we have edited them all.

The message from the picnic was “you are not alone”. We look forward to walking the next steps, together.
