Dietetics North Sefton
Outline of service:
The service provides up-to-date information and guidance about childhood nutritional matters to:
- Children who have a nutritional need and their carers.
- 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.
