Today’s nutrition issues in children manifest themselves in the form of stunted growth, obesity, anemia, and other deficiencies. Good nutrition is vital, especially when your child is sick. Our pediatric registered dietitians (RD) are available to children with a physician’s referral as part of hospital inpatient care & nutrition services. We provide well-balanced nutrition plan that fuels growth and development, taking into account the family’s community setting and aim to adapt cultural food preferences whenever possible

During childhood, lack of nutrition causes children to have less energy and less interest for learning, which negatively affects the cognitive development and academic performance. Under-nutrition will also affect physical growth and maturation, thus affecting growth rate, body weight and eventually height.
