Dr. Prentice has been researching nutrition for the past 30 years. In fact, she wrote a book on how to get kids and their families to enjoy healthy eating-emphasis on enjoy. She offers nutritional counseling to help children or teens who are struggling with their weight, in addition to helping families with picky eaters.
These are one on one sessions that consist of a full evaluation covering medical history, eating habits, eating likes and dislikes, exercise habits, and family lifestyle. In addition, a full physical exam will be completed including height, weight and BMI. Based on these findings, she customizes a plan specific to your child or teen’s nutritional needs and your family’s lifestyle. She will also provide you with a written treatment plan and goals for the week. You will receive handouts, recipes, and snack ideas from her book.
