Babies and Children

When feeding and eating doesn't go according to plan, this can be a stressful time for parents and carers. Seeking support from a Dietitian can help find solutions that work for your child and your family. 

At Central Dietetics, we can help with:

  • Fussy eaters - helping to expand food variety using positive feeding strategies including SOS and Responsive Feeding.
  • Delays in feeding skills and starting solid foods - supporting parents and carers to teach feeding skills to their children where it doesn't come as naturally. 
  • Growth issues - helping children grow well, advice about nutritional supplements.
  • Food intolerances and allergies - investigate intolerances, balanced eating while avoiding allergy foods. (Please note: severe food allergy is best supported by a specialist team).
  • Nutrition deficiencies - support to balance nutrition through food and supplementation if needed.
  • Gut problems - constipation, stomach aches and abnormal bowel motions in children.
  • Autism spectrum disorder - children with ASD may eat differently to their peers, we can help work towards a more nutritious eating pattern.
