Nutrition and Kids
Registered dietitians educate parents and their children on topics such as food allergies, nutritional development, gastrointestinal disorders, cancer, disordered eating behaviors and planning healthy meals and snacks. We can also provide nutrition counseling to teenagers who want to develop healthy meal plans, safely gain or lose weight, separate food myths from food facts, and learn the basics of good nutrition. Our goal is to ensure children grow up healthy and happy.
