 What we do

We routinely measure height and weight in all children as part of a child’s health assessment.

 

We provide treatment for the patients requiring nutrition support and  nutrition education for their carers/parents including those with faltering growth/failure to thrive, fussy/problem feeders resulting in excluding whole food groups, nutrition inadequacies (iron deficiency).

We care for patients with:

- Tube feeding transitioning to oral intake (cerebral palsy, lung, heart conditions)

- Inadequate intake, faltering growth; dysphagia

- Under five years (even without faltering growth) if paediatrician has a concern

- Autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), problem feeders, for example, excluding whole food groups

- Children aged between three and five years and there has been a  weight reduction

 What to bring

  • Blood results
  • List of current medications
  • A food and fluid intake diary for three days
