Pediatric Weight Management
Being under- or overweight is hard as an adult, but it can be especially difficult for a child or adolescent during a time of changing bodies and peer pressure.
Additionally, growing children have unique dietary needs. Engaging a dietitian that specializes in pediatrics can help your child make a change to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
WakeMed Cary Hospital's dietitians have the expertise to examine lifestyle, eating habits, and medical issues to help children and adolescents make a healthy change for life. Our dietitians will work with your child to determine current nutrition knowledge, readiness to change, and the real reason for their struggle. Through extensive one-on-one counseling, dietitians focus on meeting individual's needs.
WakeMed Cary Hospital Outpatient Dietitians offer convenient appointments to fit your schedule between 7:30 am to 5 pm.
Nutrition services are being offered as a covered service more frequently by health insurance providers. Check with your insurance carrier today.
