Our initial 60-minute assessment will cover your child’s growth, development and nutrition and feeding history. I will work with you to understand your child’s eating habits (what, how, when) as part of the greater family. With this information, I will assess your child’s overall diet, accounting not just for iron, but all nutrients.
Once the assessment is done, together we create a management strategy that fits with your unique family’s needs. This will be practical, whole family-based and provide a detailed guide of ‘what’ (types and quantities of foods to include), as well as ‘how’ (meal time & responsive feeding management strategies). You will learn which foods are high in iron (plant-based and animal sources) and how often to include them. Additional concerns will also be addressed (for example, poor growth or food allergies). I will advise if your child may need blood tests or additional investigations and I will refer, or liaise with your other healthcare professionals as needed (e.g. paediatrician or GP).
You will be provided with the tools and confidence to feed your family.To make a booking, please click the button below.
