Dietetics

Outline of service:

The service provides up-to-date information and guidance about childhood nutritional matters to:

1-      Children who have a nutritional need and their carers.

2-      Professionals in contact with children so that advice given by them to carers/children is based on best practice and is consistent.

We support children and their carers who require a special diet to ensure nutritional needs are met taking into account growth and disease progression. The service works closely with other members of the multidisciplinary team to deliver a holistic approach.

Examples of nutritional issues are food allergies particularly cow’s milk protein allergy/intolerance, selective eating, overweight, underweight and constipation.

We manage the home delivery  service for enteral feeding equipment for all children in Sefton who have complex and additional needs.
