Children’s Nutrition

The Body Doctor - Healthy Children

How you choose to feed your children will have a lasting influence on their eating patterns, attitude to food and their health for the rest of their lives. Eating habits are instilled early in life and unbalanced eating can make a child tired, irritable, constipated or bloated. It can affect their ability to concentrate and their ability to effectively get through the day.

If your child has a nutrition issue that you are struggling to manage, or if you feel that your child’s nutrition could be improved, then The Body Doctor can help. We have expertise in helping children and their parents with:

  • Establishing healthy eating habits
  • Overcoming fussy eating
  • Weight gain and improved growth
  • Gastro-intestinal issues such as: constipation, bloating and diarrhoea
  • Allergies and Intolerances
  • Addressing overweight and obesity
  • Improving athletic performance
