  • Growth concerns including faltering growth or obesity

  • Complementary feeding (weaning) advice

Emily is a registered dietitian specialising in infant and child nutrition. She has a wealth of clinical experience having worked in acute hospitals for the past 8 years. Emily advises on a range of infant and child nutritional concerns. With a friendly, evidence-based and practical approach, Emily provides families with confidence and understanding to meet their child's nutritional needs for optimal growth and development. 

What to Expect From Your Paediatric Consultation

Emily will take time to thoroughly understand your child’s medical history and assess their diet.  She will work with you to ensure your child’s nutritional needs are achieved. 

 

Typically, this will involve three sessions, for example:

Session 1: Full assessment of growth and growth history, medical and clinical history (including any blood results/ allergy test results), dietary intake, feeding and mealtimes, dietary treatment plan and supporting literature

Session 2: Assessment of progress and consideration of next steps

Session 3: Long term nutritional management and healthy eating for growth and development

If tests or treatments are needed, Emily will liaise with your child’s consultant or GP.
