NUTRITION FOR CHILDREN at Health In The Bay.
Nutritional medicine can be very helpful when it comes to supporting children’s health, using food and supplements in a safe, fun and therapeutic way to help promote your child’s optimal health.
Do you have a fussy or picky eater in your family? A nutritionist can help you with fun food ideas that are creative and realistic, along with eating strategies to empower even the fussiest of eaters that end meal time battles.
Does your child suffer from eczema or dry, bumpy skin, flushed cheeks or ears, or bloating? This may indicate that a food intolerance is present. A nutritionist may help with a food elimination challenge, food intolerance or blood testing, or repairing leaky gut to help your child regain optimal digestive function.
Is ADHD, hyperactivity or tantrums an issue with your child? Do they suffer from sleeping problems or anxiety? A nutritionist would analyse your child’s diet to check for nutrient deficiencies or intolerances that can then be easily corrected with the correct diet and supplementation.
Does your child suffer toilet anxieties? Constipation or runny bowel movements on a regular basis? A long history of antibiotic use? A nutritionist can use functional pathology to determine if a parasite is present or if dysbiosis of bowel bacteria exists and which probiotic suits your child best.
Or are you just lost and overwhelmed with how to feed your child and family the best and most nutritious food in our busy and time poor world?
A naturopathic nutritionist can guide you to make the best choices for your child as an individual, using a gentle and effective method of dietary modification and supplements to help your child reach full and optimal health.
