When children with CF are tube fed from an early age, they might develop feeding aversion issues (also called oral aversion). Care must be taken to avoid long-term eating problems. Talk with your CF Team about how you can best work with your child so that he or she learns to eat by mouth even though you are still relying on the tube for nutrition.

Here is a good article which discusses this issue and offers ways to avoid or work with feeding aversion issues in children who are tube fed. Remember- check with your doctors before trying anything new.
