We recognize that integral to your instinct as a parent is to ensure that your child is eating and thriving. Whether your child is going through a phase of picky eating, has a food allergy or requires intensive nutrition therapy for a feeding tube–we are here to help. Many of our clients are referred to us by a pediatrician or a specialist. Often, though, you as a parent consider seeking help from a registered dietitian because of a concern about your child’s diet, eating habits or weight. Below are some screening questions to help you assess if your child has potential nutrition concerns and could benefit from meeting with a registered dietitian.
Has your child unintentionally gained or lost weight recently?
Does your child have a feeding tube?
Does your child have a condition that requires a restricted or special diet?
Has your child had poor weight gain or height gain over the last few months?
Has your child been eating less recently?
Does your child have a food allergy or intolerance?
Does your child avoid multiple food groups?
Does your child complain of abdominal pain or discomfort at least three times per month?
If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above or if you have any general questions about your child’s nutrition, please be in touch! Still not sure? Fill out the form below to be in touch anyway!
