What is Dietetics?
Dietetics uses science of nutrition for your child's improved health and wellbeing. We support children 0-6 years in all areas of dietetics and feeding.
How can we help?
Our Dietitians at Dot to Dot support families to make mealtimes a pleasant family experience while also aiding nutrition. Sessions can be provided in the home or at our clinic in Geelong.
Some of these areas are:
Supporting your child's growth and weight management
Finding a nutritional diet for children with difficulties with chewing and / or swallowing
Fussy eating, or resistant/picky eating or food aversion
