Dietary Concerns

Nutrition plays an essential role in the growth and development of a child.

Good nutrition can help children achieve their full potential. A dietitian can assess your child’s diet and make recommendations to improve nutritional status with dietary changes.

Our dietitian can help with nutrition concerns, such as:

  • Food allergies and food intolerance
  • Faltering growth (also known as failure to thrive)
  • Fussy eating or restricted eating behaviours
  • Gut disorders, such as celiac disease, Crohn’s, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

You are what you eat! Family not only plays an important role in providing children with optimal nutrition, but also in fostering good relationships with healthy food. 

Does your child suffer from poor growth, fussy eating, food allergies, food intolerances, celiac disease or iron deficiency?

We can offer advice for healthy eating, irritable bowel syndrome, weight loss, and adverse food reactions.

We give evidence-based nutrition advice that is hands-on and easy to implement !
