Paths for Parents Dietitians can help with:

  • Special diets, special nutrient requirements
  • Alternate forms of feeding
  • Weight problems
  • Vitamin and mineral deficiencies and other side effects of long term or multiple medications
  • Special eating or feeding problems that make it difficult to meet nutritional needs

Children who are not in the Children With Special Health Care Needs Program (CSHCN) but who have a special nutrition need can have up to 2 visits with a CSHCN dietitian.
