Does My Child Need Nutrition Therapy?
A Registered Dietician (RD) is certified by the Commission on Dietetic Registration, the credentialing agency for The American Dietetic Association.
Passionate about nutrition and wellness, your Registered Dietician is an advocate of early and aggressive nutrition therapy. RDs may look at how nutrition is playing a role in your child's development. They work to ensure that nutrition is an integral part of managing symptoms and promoting wellness for children.
The Registered Dietician works as part of the highly experienced multi-disciplinary team who works with children and families to treat feeding, growth, and malnutrition concerns and disorders.
Please don’t hesitate to contact TEIS for more information about Nutrition Therapy.
Nutrition Therapy for Children from 0-3 Years Old
At TEIS, our focus is on early intervention for children from 0-3 years old. With a practical approach to care, a Registered Dietician focuses on meeting the individual needs of children and families by putting them at the center of care.
Your RD performs a comprehensive nutrition assessment, plans and implements a nutrition intervention program, and evaluates your child's progress throughout his or her time in early intervention.
Your Nutrition Therapist is there to support you as a parent too, so that you can better help your child participate in all the activities and routines of daily life.
