Nutrition for Kids
Have you ever wondered if youʼre meeting the nutritional needs of your children? Do you have a rough idea and hope for
the best?, Do they have some health issues or concentration,learning or behavioural issues that you think may be linked to diet or
food sensitivities? These are common concerns when raising children and we often get bamboozled by all the contradictory information
that weʼre exposed to from the media, schools and friends.
If our child is reacting to foods but we donʼt know which ones, it can become even more confusing or concerning as parents donʼt know what
foods will not be reactive or if the child is getting enough variety. Take the mystery and challenge out of your kids nutrition and
health and get some personalised, specialised support.
Child Nutrition also focuses on ensuring your child has the ideal levels of all necessary nutrients, vitamins and minerals
to allow the optimal functioning of their body.
Dietary Support for Children of All Ages
Our clinical nutritionist specialises in outlining diets which are nutritionally balanced and specific for your individual
child ʻs needs, whether they are 2 or 15.
Childrenʼs dietary requirements change drastically over the course of their infancy, childhood and adolescence with changes in accordance
to degrees of growth, cognition and activity levels. Trying to accommodate all these stages of growth with the appropriate diet can
be really challenging, as a lot of the time we struggle to eat a balanced diet ourselves.
How it Works
By comprehensively reviewing your childʼs overall health, diet, weight and lifestyle, our nutritionist will introduce simple, practical
and achievable changes that are relevant to your child. Specific dietary recommendations are provided and strategies to keep your child
engaged and excited about healthy food choices will also be discussed.
Particular attention will be given to your childʼs current state of health to ensure any existing conditions are supported.
Good Food or Potential Poison
Good food is the foundation of what we need for growth, health and vitality. But what are good foods? Sometimes the foods that are
good for one person, can be another personʼs poison especially if a food sensitivity or allergy is present. Children are especially
vulnerable to food sensitivities so careful analysis and/or testing is provided to uncover potential issues.
What To Expect In The Consultation
To support you in determining which foods are best for your child, the initial consultation includes a detailed case history, analysis
of diet, lifestyle, pre-existing health conditions, energy, sleep, concentration and various other factors which impact on
your childʼs health and wellbeing.
Included in the cost of the initial consultation is a FREE 15 minute follow up appointment where a range
of free tests are done to uncover any nutritional deficiencies or potential imbalances within the body.
The information gained from the initial consultation in combination with the free follow up tests, illustrate the priorities
regarding your childʼs diet and health, shaping the treatment and dietary plan. Common nutritional imbalances or deficiencies
such blood sugar imbalance, vitamin D, iron, protein, calcium, magnesium and fibre will also be reviewed.
A Customised Plan For Your Child
Working closely with you to ensure practicality, our Nutritionist will formulate a specific treatment plan including dietary
changes, potential lifestyle changes, nutritional supplementation if required, recipes and cooking information.
Depending whether you are a super busy, stressed parent who doesnʼt have time to change their whole life or diet, or you
have the time and energy to commit to a holistic life changing program, we will focus on formulating a specific plan including
dietary changes, education and support to create life long positive dietary and health changes. Youʼll also be provided
with access to online resources, extensive dietary support, recipes, cooking information, healthy food lists, information
regarding portion sizes and online resources.
