How a Registered Dietitian Can Help

A registered dietitian looks at how all aspects of your life impact what you eat. The intertwining relationships of your physical health, mental health, social life, family dynamics and relationship with food are just some aspects of the nutrition puzzle that is you. Whether you’re struggling with picky eating, gastrointestinal issues or are simply looking for a nutrition ‘check-up’, a registered dietitian is your ticket to optimizing your nutritional health.

As registered dietitians, we are accountable to The College of Dietitians of Ontario, which guide our professional conduct and care we provide.

Pediatric Nutrition

Parents contact us every day looking for help to support their child’s mental and physical health. Recognizing that each child is unique as is each family, we pride ourselves on digging deep and creating realistic recommendations and goals for your specific situation.

We often hear from parents that they’re concerned their child isn’t eating enough or that they are picky and have limited variety in their diet. We take the time to look at the big picture, highlight both the positives and areas of concern and give small, actionable tips to create change.

If your child has specific allergies and intolerances, our registered dietitians will help ensure your child is meeting their needs, provide you with new ideas and give you peace of mind moving forward.

Perhaps gastrointestinal issues such as bloating, abdominal pain or constipation are problematic for your child. Our dietitians will suggest ways to make changes to your child’s diet to reduce these discomforts.

Maybe you have concerns that your child is showing signs of disordered eating. No matter where your child is on their path to developing a healthy relationship with food, we help create a plan towards recovery.
