Our pediatric treatment process

Our dietitians have extensive experience working with kids of all ages, from toddlers to teenagers. They are specially trained to connect with children and deliver top-notch pediatric care, regardless of your child’s age or condition.

Nutrition planning tailored to your child

Your child’s dedicated dietitian will work with your child on a non-diet approach to whatever nutrition condition they may be facing. Their care plan will take into account all aspects of their nutrition journey and their life to best meet their needs.

Convenient, virtual appointments

We know your child’s life is incredibly busy - between school, sports, extracurriculars, and family time, it can be difficult to squeeze in much more. That’s why we offer additional flexibility options to fit into your child (and your family’s) hectic life and schedule.

Multi-disciplinary approach

We know it’s important to have consistency across your child’s care team - that’s why coordination of care is a key pillar at Nourish. We work with any doctors or mental health professionals your child may have to ensure a single, consistent approach to their nutrition journey.

Becca

Her RD wasn't just just talking about meals and calories, but making a true connection

Becca

's Success Story

The part of her care team that my daughter Becca always struggled with the most was her dietitian, because that was the one member who was forcing the most change. That’s why I was so thrilled when Becca actually came to me about a new RD that she had seen on instagram - I thought there may finally be an opportunity for Becca to connect with her dietitian.

Immediately, things were much easier at Nourish than our experiences elsewhere. Our dietitian was able to find a time that worked within Becca’s difficult schedule. With sports, school, friends, and all her other extracurriculars, it can often be hard to fit important appointments in, but with Nourish it was easy.

There was an immediate impact. She’s been feeling better, which I’ve had the opportunity to hear both from her and from her dietitian because Nourish involves the parents in their own sessions, too. Her improvement in health has led to her getting a lot of her confidence back, and I have finally been able to see her happy again. It feels like such a relief to watch my happy girl back with her friends.

Julia

To put it simply, Nourish has been a lifesaver for my daughter and me.

's Success Story

My daughter Julia had been going to a psychiatrist to deal with her disordered eating, and the topic of getting a dietitian had come up. I was completely desperate to help her in any way I could, so I jumped at the opportunity and was connected with Nourish by her psychiatrist.

Immediately, the dietitian connected on a teenage-level with my daughter, which I think has been crucial for my daughter’s recovery. She was incredibly kind and really engaged with Julia, which I know can be difficult at times with teenagers. Our dietitian went above and beyond to 'meet Julia where she was at’ - going so far as to adjust appointment times to align with Julia's school schedule, and being flexible with any goals or strategies she set with Julia so that Julia could accomplish them while still getting to experience a ‘normal’ teenage life. I could finally start to see Julia turn a corner, and seeing the hope in her eyes finally return was incredible for me to watch.

I have appreciated how much I am kept in the loop by Julia's dietitian. We finally have someone helping both of us deal with the nutrition challenges that she is constantly facing. My daughter went from eating basically nothing to having 3 meals and 4 snacks a day consistently. So much of her pain is gone, and that is all thanks to our dietitian. I highly recommend anyone looking for a guiding and supportive figure in their child’s life get a Nourish dietitian.
