Registered dietitians at Nemours Children’s Specialty Care, Jacksonville, provide individualized nutritional assessments and recommendations.

We provide a thorough evaluation of your child’s nutritional status, which typically includes:
  • interviews with you and your child about your child’s daily dietary habits
  • an assessment of the adequacy of vitamins and minerals in your child’s current diet
  • analysis of a “food diary” that is kept over the course of several days
  • detailed body measurements, including weight, length or height, head circumference, weight-for-length, BMI and skin fold measurements. We can assess your child’s growth by comparing these measurements to reference standards on a growth chart
  • calculations of your child’s resting energy expenditure or basal metabolic rate, which is the number of calories your child would burn if he or she rested all day
  • education and guidance for you and your child about how best to manage nutritional needs related to a particular disease or condition

We will work closely with you and your child to create a plan that ensures your child gets the nutrition he or she needs to promote growth, especially during times of serious illness. Our recommendations may include individualized feeding plans, special diets and advice on behavioral approaches to better nutrition.
