finding workable solutions
Consultations are a collaborative process between myself (the dietitian), the caregiver and the child. The goal is to find workable solutions. Helping families develop a step-by-step plan and mentoring them along the journey achieves this goal. Success comes not through following a set meal plan, as nowadays everyone has access to a variety of meal plans and food lists. Parents need creative solutions that work and fit into their lifestyle. This takes into account their child’s challenges, personality and past medical and feeding experiences.
