Our team of highly skilled pediatric dietitians evaluate
and treat children with a variety of diagnoses in
outpatient, inpatient and day treatment programs.
Some of these programs/clinics include Diabetes,
Feeding, GI, Pulmonary, Weigh Smart® and individual
consultations by referral.
Your visit will consist of a session with a licensed
dietitian who will evaluate your child's nutritional status
based on their medical history, body measurements,
lab data and eating habits. With input provided by the
child and the child's family, goals are set to carry out
the nutrition prescription for improved health. Followup
sessions are strongly encouraged to monitor the
progression of the set goals and re-evaluate nutrition
status as the child grows.
