Based on this we generate age-appropriate nutrition recommendations that include individualized meal plans, snack ideas, food groups, portion sizes for age and more. Our goal is to provide you with the tools needed to help you make better nutritional choices everyday . Whether you have a picky eater, a child with cholesterol problems or simply have questions of starting solid foods, we make it simple.
Weight Management for kids – Weight problems can be hard to discuss with kids. Loosing weight does not mean DIET or eliminating important foods, especially in kids. This is a family based program that includes an individual assessment where we discuss current eating habits, exercise routine and psychosocial factors. You will learn appropriate foods & portions sizes based on your child’s weight, age and development. This program focuses on understanding the problems and developing solutions that work for the entire family. It encompasses a visit to the supermarket and subsequent follow up visits where we will evaluate progress and discuss new goals.
Supermarket Visit – Confused on what to buy at the supermarket? Do you have doubts on how to read a nutrition label? In this visit, we will teach your kids and entire family how to make the best decisions at the supermarket. This is a dynamic experience for both children and parents where you will learn about new foods and how to make better food choices. At the end of the visit, you will obtain a personalized shopping list with healthy food alternatives based on your eating habits.
