Proper nutrition in childhood can reinforce lifelong eating habits that contribute to your children's overall well being and help them to grow up to their full potential. Whether you have a toddler or a teen, what he eats is important to both his physical and mental development. 

 

Nearly 1 in 3 children in America is overweight or obese.  Yet, many parents are still confused, especially when it comes to what kids eat.

  • How much does your child need?

  • Is he getting enough nutrients such as calcium and iron?

  • Is he/she eating too much fat?

Initial Evaluation

During the initial one-hour consultation, we meet with parent(s) and/or child. We will collect relevant information pertaining to: medical history, medication/supplement use, diet history, behavior patterns, and feeding issues. Basic nutrition education is provided and a meal plan may be designed, if indicated. Nutrition/health goals will be made together that are specific, realistic and achievable. A nutrition report will be provided to child’s pediatrician and family.

 

Follow-Up Sessions

During half hour to an hour follow-up sessions, we will assess a three day food recall using a nutrient analysis software program, if needed. We work with the whole family to involve all siblings and parents in nutritional goals. Eating and behavior patterns will be reviewed since last visit. We will provide continuing nutrition education on nutritional concerns and healthy behavior strategies to move child and family closer to set goals.
