What is Dietetics?

Dietitians are able to support children and families with a range of nutritional and health concerns. Nutrition plays a crucial role in childhood development. Proper nutrition meets the needs of a child’s developing brain and body, enabling them to reach their full potential. At the same time, poor eating habits, or medical conditions such as allergies, celiac disease or diabetes, can impair a child's lifelong health if left unchecked.

Paediatric dietitians work with children, and their parents and caregivers, to establish good dietary habits.
