Paediatrics dietitian team

Our paediatric dietitians use evidence-based practice to provide dietary support to both inpatients on the wards and to outpatients in our regular dietetic clinics to help children and young adults receive the nutrition they require to achieve optimal growth and development. Dietitians work closely with doctors, nurses, speech and language therapists, catering staff and health visitors to ensure a multidisciplinary approach to patient care. The wide range of conditions our dietitians can offer support with include:

  • Nutritional deficiencies such as iron and folate deficiencies
  • Faltering growth
  • Eating disorders
  • Obesity
  • Allergies
  • Gastrointestinal conditions such as Crohn's disease and Coeliac disease
  • Diabetes 
  • Selective eating 
  • Metabolic disorders such as phenylketonuria (PKU)

Our paediatric dietitians can also support patients that need to be fed via a feeding tube such as a nasogastric (NG) tube or gastrostomy tube (PEG) to ensure they receive the nutrition that is most appropriate for them when they are unable to fully meet their nutritional requirements through eating and drinking.
