Medical Issues Can Be a Bummer
We want to see your child getting the nutrition they need to help give them a bright and fulfilling future.
Get Your Child Back to Healthy We specialize in growing your infant, child or adolescent the nutritious way.
Proper nutrition is imperative for healthy growth for our young ones. Personality, health issues and unhealthy routine can stunt your child’s development and sense of wellness.
For example, their growth may be normal, but a sudden health issue makes eating and feeding difficult. Our pediatric specialists walk you through every step to minimize long-term health issues and maximize their well-being. Whether your child struggles with weight, height or both, we help get them back to healthy.
Medical Nutrition Plan of Action Food is Our Prescription.
Our pediatric nutrition specialists make a detailed assessment of your child’s growth history, medical records and current diet. They work alongside you to create a nutrition plan that meets your child’s needs in a way that is doable for your family. Our dietitians spend a full 90 minutes on your first visit to establish a personal relationship and also address every question and concern from mom and dad. We discover nutrition needs, note the expected progress, and set defined goals to give your child a jumpstart in life.
Individualized Nutrition Plans
Lemond Nutrition is one of the few private nutrition practices that specialize in child growth abnormalities (underweight and overweight) for a myriad of health reasons and causes. There are so many emotional and behavioral aspects to consider when guiding a child around food. Many dietitians lack the sensitivity needed to properly address an uncomfortable subject. We go through great lengths to show your child respect while administering the help they need.
Depending on the child’s age and diagnosis, the first consultation may emphasize interaction with the parents or child. Most children need to come to the visit, but in some cases we do ask for the parents to come alone.
The first visit includes a nutrition prescription or wellness contract packaged in a portfolio with practical educational items customized to your child’s nutrition goals.
We also offer our families ongoing support through our HIPAA-compliant Healthie portal. Your pediatric nutrition expert is only a click away.
The first visit typically involves:
- Height/Weight/BMI or weight-for-length
- Growth chart plotting
- 24 hour diet recall including food likes and dislikes
- Food allergies
- Past medical history and family medical history
- Family dynamics
What Parents Say:
“We are so thankful for Lemond Nutrition working with our 13 year son! He has eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) & many allergies. They educated us on so many new foods, meals & snack ideas that he could have, how to add calories & what type of foods to help him grow. I really appreciate the way his dietitian respectfully talked with him & gave him ownership, which resulted in more confidence. From 2/2018 to 11/2018, he gained a total of 16.4 lbs (went from the 21st percentile to 38th percentile) and grew 4.1 inches (from the 37th percentile to 61 percentile)! He has continued to thrive since.”
