Working With A Children's Nutritionist

Get the right expertise

To ensure you are working with the best pediatric nutritionist for your child, you should inquire about a nutritionist’s education, credentials, and working style. Here are a few questions you should ask your pediatric nutritionist to ensure you get the right expertise.
An image of Top Nutrition Coaching nutritionistsGet Started
All of our nutritionist engagements include the following:
Ask about education
An image of an arrow icon
You want to ensure that the pediatric nutritionist you are working with has at least a bachelor’s degree in dietetics, nutrition, public health, or related health science. Ask your potential nutritionist questions about where they went to school and what degree they currently hold. If the pediatric nutritionist does not have a bachelor’s degree in a nutrition-related field, ask about additional education or other work experience that they may have.
What is their professional title?
An image of an arrow icon
While a nutritionist’s title is not the be-all-end-all, it can reveal a lot about their level of experience and expertise. Specific titles that indicate you are working with an expert in their field include Certified Clinical Nutritionist, Certified Nutrition Specialist, Registered Dietician, and Registered Nutritionist Dietician.
Inquire about their working style
An image of an arrow icon
Anyone can call themselves a pediatric nutritionist, therefore, there are a few key signs you should look out for to ensure you are working with an expert. One of the best ways to deduce whether or not an individual is qualified is to pay attention to their title and credentials. A registered dietitian-nutritionist (RDN) is a specific professional credential that can only be received by individuals who have at least a bachelor’s degree. This individual will have also completed a course approved by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics, supervised practice programs, and a national exam for the Commission on Dietetic Registration.

What is a children's nutritionist?

A children's nutritionist is an expert in the dietary needs of newborns and children. While some children's nutritionists work with individual children and families, others will work with larger groups at schools or hospitals.

Whether your child is a picky eater, struggling to gain or lose weight, or is grappling with a chronic illness, a children's nutritionist will be able to offer you help and guidance. Some parents consult children's nutritionists simply to ensure that they feed their children with the proper nutrients they need for normal growth.

Work With A Children's Nutritionist

What does a children's nutritionist do?

If a children's nutritionist works with a patient one-on-one, they aim to help parents design an appropriate nutrition plan for their child. During the initial consultation, a children's nutritionist will assess the child's dietary needs and create a customized meal plan tailored to their food preferences and nutritional needs. This can be especially helpful if your child is a picky eater and has strong aversions to certain foods.

Sometimes a customized meal plan may factor in the dietary needs of a child with diabetes or obesity; other times that meal plan may be catered to children with celiac disease or lactose intolerance. If your child has unhealthy eating habits, then a children's nutritionist may also be a great resource.

Benefits of working with a children's nutritionist

Ensuring that your child receives the nutrition they need to live a healthy lifestyle is paramount. Here are some of the benefits you can reap from working with a children's nutritionist.

Picky Eaters

On the call, ask what their nutrition philosophy is and what a typical session with them might look like to gauge whether their style meets your needs. Some nutritionists may be more rigorous or intense with stricter regimens, while others may be more laid back and take a holistic approach.
