Welcome to dietitian4children where I strongly believe in making mealtimes a happy experience for both you and your child while promoting good nutrition and growth.
I am a Highly Specialised Paediatric Dietitian, with almost 15 years experience within the NHS and private sector, currently working at the largest children’s hospital in the UK. My private practice clinic is based in Bramhall, Cheshire and I also offer phone call/video consultations where appropriate.
Vicky helped me with my daughter when she was just over a year old and suffered badly with constipation. I am a first time mum and was very worried with what to do and wanted to help my daughter but didn't know how best to. Vicky put me at great ease and gave me some suggestions of both foods to try and also which vitamins would be best for her to take. The options helped and my daughter now no longer suffers. I am very grateful for her support and guidance and would recommend her to anyone! Xx
We approached Victoria for some help with our daughter's possible allergy to milk as well as advice about bringing our daughter up on a vegetarian diet. Victoria was fantastic. She instantly pointed us in the right direction for us to get the diagnosis confirmed from a paediatric consultant. She also provided us with lots of information about how we can provide our daughter with a nutritious and balanced diet. Victoria was very attentive throughout the whole process. We came away feeling confident about how we are going to move forward with our daughter's allergy and diet. I would certainly recommend Victoria to any parent with concerns.
Why does my child need Calcium?
Calcium is really important for strong bones and teeth.
What is a portion size?
The recommended portion size depends on your child’s age. A portion would be what fits in the palm of their hand so for example 1 portion for a toddler would be much smaller than that for a teenager.
Are you worried your toddler is not eating enough?
Are mealtimes extremely stressful?
Food refusal is a completely normal part of a toddler’s development but can understandably be an extremely worrying time for parents. Toddlers may restrict the variety of foods they eat and may stop eating foods they previously loved and vice –versa. Again, this is completely normal behaviour. This phase usually improves over time but may become more apparent in some toddlers.
