Healthy eating for every age and stage of development

We work with children living with food allergies and developmental disabilities and other conditions that prevent them from eating or swallowing properly. We provide education, support and therapy to help them be successful eaters. 

We teach families how to build healthy meals, snack smart and combat food allergies. Our pediatric nutrition team works to make healthy eating fun.
