Why Work with a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist?
If you've come this far, you've been through enough!
Nutrition challenges can affect you and your child in many ways. This may look like:
Stressful family mealtimes
Concerns surrounding what or how much your child eats
Tummy troubles that affect their quality of life
Food allergies that make it difficult to meet their nutritional needs
Your child may not be feeling or acting as their best self if his or her unique dietary needs are not being met. You may feel frustrated, anxious or worried about your child’s health.
Sometimes the stress surrounding food can lead to tension between partners and have an effect on your other children. Or you might just be wishing you had a little more guidance in terms of providing a healthy, well-balanced diet for your family.
If any of this resonates with you, we’re here to help.
Good nutrition is necessary for children to grow physically, emotionally and academically.
We get it. Children are precious, and as parents, we want to give them the absolute best opportunity we can to flourish in all aspects of life. A balanced diet that meets the unique needs of your child can set them up for success and reassure you that they are getting what they need nutritionally. Nutrition plays such an important part in your child’s development, but most of us have received little to no education on how we should be feeding our kids before becoming parents. We attend birthing classes, breastfeeding classes, and parenting classes, but we are left to fend for ourselves when it comes to the basic necessity of feeding our children. Crazy, right?!
So, naturally, we start Googling. And we find there is an overwhelming amount of information out there about nutrition, feeding styles, special diets, supplements, and more. Unfortunately, much of the information available isn't backed by science, and oftentimes, this misinformation can do more harm than good. As dietitians, we strive to provide clients with up-to-date, evidence-based guidance so that you can feel confident putting food on the family table.
Feeding kids doesn't have to be so hard. Through nutrition counseling, we can work to identify personalized solutions and simple steps you can take to solve your feeding struggles.
Whatever it is you are struggling with at the table, working with a registered dietitian nutritionist can help.
