Who We Are

Pediatric Nutrition Therapy's practice approach focuses on providing accessible nutrition direction from an expert in pediatric nutrition. PNT's services provide nutrition assessments, interventions and education sessions that are individualized to fit your needs in order to optimize your child’s nutritional status, health and ability to grow and thrive no matter what their stage of life or clinical diagnosis.  

Fueling our bodies with the proper nutrients is of the upmost importance, as it is the universal element for survival in life from birth to old age. Nutrition plays the most critical role in our health and wellness- specifically for children. Todays health care model has drastically changed over the years, leaving pediatricians pressed for time and under-qualified to address the ever-changing complex nutrition needs of children. Many outpatient dietitian services are inaccessible, with lengthy waiting lists due to high demand, leaving many parents hopeless and at a loss of how to address the ongoing nutrition needs for their child.

Let Pediatric Nutrition Therapy provide guidance to ensure your child's nutrition needs are met today, tomorrow, and every single day!
