Our pediatricians can advise you on your child’s diet and nutritional needs. They also work in collaboration with Novomed’s dietitians to offer your child a personalized nutrition plan, fine-tuned to their individual requirements and, if necessary, can refer children with eating disorders (eg, Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder, or AFRID) to Novomed Psychiatry & Neurology’s Eating Disorder Department.
Proper nutrition is essential for a healthy lifestyle and, without it, you become more susceptible to illness. The benefits of eating well include increased energy, better quality sleep, a strengthened immune system and improved concentration. Developing a healthy relationship with food from early childhood is essential, to reduce the likelihood of eating disorders later in life.
