Nutrition for Kids sessions are designed to meet your child’s needs. If it is determined that your child needs feeding therapy, Jessica is a trained pediatric feeding therapist.
Utilizing the Sensory Oral Sequential (SOS) Approach to Feeding and her experience in pediatric nutrition, Jessica will work with you to find areas in your child’s nutrition that need a little extra help. She’ll work with you to create solutions to help your child get proper nutrition and she’ll work with you on strategies to help your child try new foods or overcome feeding challenges.
Is nutrition counseling right for your child? Is Jessica the right dietitian for your little one? Set up a time to chat and cover these questions.
During the initial assessment, I will do a comprehensive evaluation of your child. This will include, but is not limited to:
- Evaluation of height, weight, and BMI
- Calculate nutrient needs
- Review of current food intake
- Discussion and review of nutrition concerns
- Discussion of nutrition counseling and feeding therapy needs
- Discussion of goals and strategies
- Creation of individualized plan for your child
Follow-up appointments will include a review of past goals and strategies. We will also discuss progress on the current individualized nutrition plan. We will make adjustments as needed based on progress and current nutrition needs. Follow-up appointments may also include a feeding therapy session where we work together on a process of your child exploring and interacting with new and non-preferred foods.
