Changing the way your family eats might seem like a huge transition, but we can support you in making healthier choices until you are eating well and feeling your best.

What Is Nutritional Counseling?

Getting the right nutrients is important for your child's health and development, and good eating habits will benefit them for the rest of their lives. Nutritional counseling in Maitland, FL, is education and guidance on making healthy food choices. Our counseling includes learning about healthy foods and appropriate portion sizes, but also tips for recipes, meal planning, and mindful eating practices.

We will encourage eating whole foods and eliminating processed foods and sugar. We can teach your family how to read food labels and what to look for versus what to avoid. Our pediatricians promote involving your children in meal preparation too, as this gives them an appreciation for the food and where it comes from.

Does My Family Need Nutritional Counseling?

Food can be your medicine or be detrimental to your health, depending on what and how you eat. With the popularity and convenience of sugary drinks and sweet or salty snacks, many children are carrying around extra pounds before they have even learned healthy habits. The CDC reports that 1 in 5 kids and adolescents experience obesity.

Even if no one in your family has a weight problem, everyone benefits from learning more about healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling for your children helps ensure they get the nutrients they need, especially if they have allergies or sensitivities to certain foods. The right nutrition can also be part of treatment for a medical condition or chronic illness. Start making healthier choices now with our support, and see how your family's health improves!
