Paediatric Dietetics

The Paediatric team are Registered Dietitians and Assistants who provide dietary advice to children with nutritional problems and their families across Birmingham. Paediatric Dietitians are specially trained to enable specialist nutritional care to be provided to infants, children and adolescents, and to promote healthy eating for infants, children, young people and their families. We interpret the complexities of disease management into practical and understandable dietary treatment for clients and families to follow on a day to day basis. This includes children struggling to gain weight, allergic to foods or needing to be fed artificially.

We work alongside Paediatricians, Community Children’s Nurses, Health Visitors, School Nurses, Child Development Centres, Speech and Language Therapists and any other staff who may be involved in the care of your child. We also work closely with local hospital dietitians to share information if your child is admitted to hospital.

The team see children and their families in a variety of settings including local health centres, Child Development Centres, Special Schools and at home.
