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'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 Outpatient Dietitians offer convenient appointments to fit your schedule with office hours from 8 am to 4 pm. We also offer a comprehensive education program for overweight children and their families. Learn more about ENERGIZE.
