Young children or adolescents have nutritional needs just as adults. Especially while growing fast they may have a higher need for certain nutrients like zinc, calcium, adequate protein and so on.
If you are not sure if your child is reaching their full potential nutritionally you can consult with a nutrition practitioner like myself.
Nutrition For Kids
For children, rather than counting calories, it is most important to learn to incorporate health giving foods that support growth and development at different stages if life. Small changes can make a big difference in the long run and are likely to be accepted by the little ones.
Children and Adolescent Consultation
These consultations will be made with parents present. Most common approach is to work around the child or adolescent's routine and likes and dislikes. Simple changes like adding in different vegetables with meals and incorporating these into meatballs or smoothies are a great place to start for many.
Can I Get Some Tests for my Child?
Yes you can have testing done for your child. I usually use non invasive tests for young children such as urine, finger prick or stool testing. These test can give valuable information with regards to the child's nutritional status or digestive function and gut ecology. I also use food intolerance testing as one of my first call to action to check if some foods are contributing health issues.
Nutritional Therapy for Underactive Thyroid
I met with Susan Davis whom I learnt about via the Arch Clinic in Fordingbridge. Susan is helping me with nutritional advice with the aim of providing the optimum diet to deal with my under active thyroid condition. Susan’s help is proving invaluable and I therefore would happily recommend her to others seeking help with their dietary requirements.

Nutritional Coaching for Digestive Issues & Weight Loss
I have had many positives following your nutritional advice... I have lost some inches initially, and was sleeping a lot better. I don’t seem to have had any migraines, lost the pain in my back under my shoulders, have felt less depressed and anxious. Tummy upsets and IBS symptoms a lot improved. So overall the improvements overall have been fab, I really feel better. Going forward I am sticking to the dietary recommendations, I am eating lots more fruit and vegetables and crumpets are out! I do feel better for it though, so thank you. I have recommended you to lots of people!

Dietary Supplements to Improve Hayfever Symptoms
I have been a chronic hay fever sufferer since I was 3yrs old. This has wrecked pretty much every summer
I tried various things over the years without much success. This year I decided to look harder at my diet and work with Susan through supplementation. I have been on the regime for around 5 weeks now and am seeing huge gains. I am not completely cured but for the first time ever was able to sit out in the evening on the Solstice. Also I haven't had a day off work this season. As this is a short time for therapy I am confident that if I continue to work with Susan I shall continue to improve before the next season!
