Because children are constantly growing and changing, early assessments allow any nutritional problems to be detected and treated early (failure to thrive, catch up growth, overweight, obesity, anorexia, bulimia…)
A complete assessment of nutritional status includes the collection of anthropometric data (height, weight, weight for length or BMI, and all of which are plotted as percentiles on growth charts. We also use upper arm circumference, waist circumference.
At healthy Living, we provide your child with a unique diet according to his/her nutrient requirements especially for energy and protein, to avoid malnutrition or weight gain.
We also let your child get used to follow a healthy lifestyle and encourage him/her to choose the right food, thus preventing acute illness, chronic diseases or significant emotional problems in the future.
