Enteral feeding delivers nutrients—either orally or through a feeding tube—directly into a patient’s gastrointestinal (GI) tract.
The Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Integrated Enteral Feeds Advancement Team (IEAT) is a multidisciplinary clinic for patients with feeding tubes who may eventually be able to take most of their nutrition by mouth. This includes most children with feeding tubes.
What to Expect
Our doctors work with each patient to observe their eating behavior, watch parent-child interaction and make referrals to other feeding programs, if needed.
Our doctors can also give advice about developmental eating and feeding stages, such as how to introduce new foods.
