We all want our children to develop a healthy relationship with food. As parents and caretakers, our goal is to prevent disordered eating, unhealthy dieting and harmful pre-occupations with food. We want our kids to develop a natural desire to eat a variety of healthy foods. We also want them to trust their bodies to be able to tell them how much to eat. Ideally, we want our children to be able to practice healthy nutritional choices day-to-day but also to be alright with indulging in treat foods at times, but without going completely overboard with them.
The goal we aim for is to work with families to help build your child’s long term relationship with food and establish healthy eating habits. Recognizing that perfect nutrition isn’t always possible, and that’s ok!
A registered pediatric dietitian assists children in following a healthy diet and improving their eating pattern to manage their medical condition or nutritional needs. Feeding children can be a challenge on the best of days. Add in a major pandemic, kids at home 24/7, new routines and extra stress, and it can cause a lot of anxiety and frustration. Mealtime power struggles, picky eating, all-day snacking and short-order cooking are all be a reality for most parents right now
Pediatric Dietitians can give you and your child general healthy eating advice or help you manage dietary conditions. They can also help you with setting boundaries and coping strategies as we navigate our way through a most challenging year.
