Nutrition Counselling Services
All services begin with a thorough assessment and detailed nutrition, growth and health history. After the initial assessment, services can be personalized to suit you, your child's or your family's needs. Here are a few examples of what we can accomplish.
From Picky to Positive
Having a picky eater in the family can be tough. It changes everything about the way you thought you'd parent. You've tried everything and your picky eater still won't budge off their favourites. We can begin by addressing your worries such as: growth, refusing to eat, excluding entire food groups or meal time battles over food. We will determine what your family likes to eat, what your picky eater can eat, and begin some steps towards exploring new foods.
Pediatric Nutrition Check Up
You'd like to know if your child is getting all the nutrients they need. You are worried about nutrient deficiencies in your child's diet like iron, calcium or fibre. You want to start learning how to improve their nutrition, especially for picky eaters. Maybe you need a few nutrition questions answered related to food allergies or growth. We can put our heads together to solve problems and create some time saving strategies to make your life easier.
Fun Foodie Lessons
Like any complex skill learning to eat & tolerate new foods can take a little practice. Your child needs to take small steps to consider new foods in a positive and playful way. The ultimate goal is to teach parents how to do Fun Foodie Lessons at home on their own.
Cookie cutter meal plans never work, especially when you've got a family to feed. We will work together to consider everyone's food preferences, any unique dietary needs and and your cooking skill. From there, we plan meals together. A meal plan can help you step away from making special meals for your kids, especially when they are picky. We can also set up a step by step food exposure plan.
