Nutrition for Children and Teenagers
We can provide you with the right nutritional help for your child or teenager
We understand that it may feel overwhelming to translate the nutrition information that is out there and that’s where we can help you.
We can help you navigate nutrition information and provide you and your family with support and recommendations that will suit you and your child/teenagers growing needs.
Our dietitians are qualified in current best practices with the Dietitians Association of Australia and our priority is to ensure all feel comfortable, cared for, and empowered to achieve a better health outcome.
Weight management in children and teenagers is a worldwide health issue and the impacts on physical, social, and emotional health may be carried through into adulthood if left unidentified.
Weight-related health problems in children include:
- stress on bones and joints, especially in hips, legs, and ankles
- snoring and sleep apnoea
- insulin resistance
- type 2 diabetes
- high blood pressure
- high cholesterol
- fatty liver
- low self-esteem and behavioral problems
- disengagement in physical activity and sports in general
- child or teenager may obtain misguided nutrition advice and embark on a non-conventional dietary plan
We can work together and support you with the best strategies for lifestyle and family goals that will get your child/teenager results for the long-term.
Get started and find out more about how we can help you, someone who knows exactly what you are needing help with, and understands your concerns. Call 0424 272 472 for a friendly chat and to discuss what is suitable for you and your family needs.
Australian Bariatric Dietitians are strongly committed to child safety and have a child safety check for the state of NSW and a National Police Check.
To ensure continuous care, we have increased the amount of Telehealth sessions during COVID-19 restrictions.
