The purpose of this paper was to review the current state of the behavior analytic feeding intervention literature. We highlight studies that we found to be important contributions to the recent literature in the following areas: food selectivity, chewing, packing, and food refusal/tube weaning and provide suggestions for future research and clinical work in these areas. We also discuss several current topics relevant to the field in hopes to further advance research and clinical practice. These topics include considering the benefits of innovative models of service delivery such as telehealth and caregiver-implemented interventions, the importance of evaluating long-term outcomes of behavioral feeding interventions, and lastly, ethical issues to consider in the designing and implementation of behavioral feeding interventions and training of practitioners in our field.
