Eating healthy is an essential part of overall health and wellbeing. At Mark9 Pediatrics we are dedicated to helping your family stay healthy as easily as possible. Additionally, we understand the frustration of navigating your way through online articles and books about nutrition on your own. For this reason, Dr. Moemeka offers nutritional counseling to help you and your family understand what nutrition and healthy eating means in the context of your family and community.
Why do I need nutritional counseling?
Many patients can benefit from nutritional counseling. For example, if you aren’t sure your child is eating as nutritiously as he should, he is having gut problems, or is a particularly picky eater, Dr. Moemeka is here to help.
What to expect
During your appointment, Dr. Moemeka will assess why you are seeking nutritional counseling, your family’s current diet, your child’s activity levels, and your nutritional goals.
Following this initial assesment, Dr. Moemeka will work with you to determine the root cause of any GI distress if that is a concern. After this, she will develop a personalized treatment plan to help ensure your child gets the nutrients he needs.
If eating healthier is your main goal, Dr. Moemeka will work with you to develop a nutritional plan to fuel your child’s body and improve his wellbeing.
Nutrition is one of the best ways to stay healthy and one of the many ways we can help make a healthy lifestyle easy for your family.
Fuel your body
Food isn’t just about feeding your body; it’s about fueling your body. Incoporating more veggies, encouraging healthy eating, and getting plenty of water are all essential to fueling your body. To learn more about how you can enhance your child’s wellness through food as well as how to eat for fuel, then a nutritional consultation is for you!
