For many children, the thought of eating food is scary.

Four year old Owen Hunt of Colona makes a mad dash for the food room at the Genesis Pediatric Therapy Center in Bettendorf.

Occupational Therapist Megan Long is helping Owen become friends with food. Teaching him that he does not have to be afraid of it.

Owen has been going to therapy for two years. He has a high sensitivity to how food feels, smells, and tastes.

When Owen first started two years ago, eating  a graham cracker was a challenge. There were very few foods he would eat.

It was very difficult for the Hunt family to go to a restaurant.

Now he is eating some foods for the very first time. Recently, he ate a peanut butter and jelly cracker.

Alex Hunt, Owen's mom, says peanut butter has been a foe of his.  So, she was pleasantly  surprised that her son did not put up much of a fight and sampled the cracker.

About eighteen months ago, Owen started eating apple sauce for the first time.

Megan Long says little Owen is on a journey. He still has a long way to go. However, he is making tremendous progress. Feeding himself with a utensil, eating chicken nuggets, pancakes and waffles.

Alex Hunt says two years ago her son did not eat any solid foods. Now, there are several  foods he eats on a regular basis. That, she says, is monumental!
