PEDIATRIC NUTRITION SERVICES
Throughout my years as a dietitian my clinical nutrition experience has been grounded in pediatrics. Through home visits for children with special needs, to assisting children with growth issues in a FTT clinic to managing nutrition needs for medically complex children, the importance of sound nutrition is consistent despite the various methods and obstacles to feeding. Ensuring a child is meeting her nutritional needs is imperative to reaching not only their growth potential but overall well being.
How Nurturing Remedies can help:
GENERAL NUTRITION- re-balancing macro-nutrients, picky eating, weight management, blood sugar balancing.
SENSORY ISSUES sensory challenges can manifest in eating and utilizing sensory strategies (SOS approach) in feeding can help overcome them.
AUTISM- limited food intake can have a significant impact on nutritional status. Using sensory strategies in conjunction with individual limitations and finding creative ways to bring more nutrition into daily intake can help to balance nutrition deficiencies
ENTERAL FEEDING Assessment of enteral feeds against DRI requirements to ensure proper intake as well as trouble shooting feeding issues (wretching, vomiting, changes in bowels).
EATING DISORDERS- Nutrition therapy, as part as a multi-disciplinary approach, can help guide patients to sound nutrition information and creative solutions to the many obstacles toward healthy eating.
MULTIPLE FOOD ALLERGIES: Provide assistance with finding healthy alternatives within multiple food restrictions and developing meal plans that meet nutritional needs.
Nurturing Remedies takes most major health insurances.
