Nutrition during and post-Cancer Treatments
Food to support your immune systemSurgery, radiation and chemo treatments are helpful, but at the same time, invasive. By improving your nutrition, you can strengthen yourself to lessen the side-effects. As well, this advanced nutrition will create a strong foundation of health, once the treatments are completed.
Nutrition for Children with Special Needs
A nutrition plan for your child’s individual needsDoes your child have an Individual Education Plan? Likewise, some children need a health plan that is sensitive to their individual needs. We have experience working with children with speech and development delay, sensory processing disorder and those who are on the autism spectrum. We can address barriers to healthy eating including delayed fine motor skills, sensory issues (not liking certain temperatures or textures), food sensitivities and digestive disorders.
Gradual Baby-Led Weaning
Baby-led weaning with a healthy twistThe baby-led weaning approach to solid foods means that your baby learns how to feed him/herself and properly chew food, early on. This is great for developing their fine and gross motor skills and also helps to avoid pickiness later on in life. Our method of gradual baby-led weaning allows your baby to reap all the benefits of baby-led weaning, while keeping their delicate digestion and nutritional needs in mind.
