What is Paediatric Nutrition & Dietetics
Dietitians are university qualified health professionals who understand how your body works and how the food and drinks you consume help to nourish both healthy individuals and those with medical conditions that are affected by, or treated with, nutrition. A dietitian is able to help you separate fact from fiction and distinguish health eating plans from those which do not provide optimal nourishment.
They use their knowledge and skills to help tailor a plan for your family to improve their health and wellbeing.
Our dietitians specialise in a range of dietary services for children and adolescents. Our paediatric dietary services include helping you manage:
- Poor growth
- Fussy eating
- Gastrointestinal problems (including Coeliac Disease and Inflammatory Bowel Disease)
- Chronic constipation and diarrhoea
