These days, with all the conflicting information about healthy eating, finding a source that you can trust can be tricky. This is especially true for new moms who may be breastfeeding or starting their babies on formula, or solid foods. It is important for everyone in the family to know what healthy choices will benefit your lifestyle now, so that your transition into alternative stages in your life will be a lot smoother! In order to give your little one, the best start possible, you will want to find the best place to see a Registered Dietitian in Ontario.
What does a Dietitian do?
A Dietitian is an accredited professional in Ontario who is an expert in food and nutrition. They go through rigorous education and training to obtain their title!
Using the best scientific data available, a dietitian will advise you on the proper diet and food to meet your nutrition needs while taking into account any special requirements that you may have.
Why new moms love consulting with a Dietitian:
Babies aren’t born with an instruction manual, and as a new mom you want to do your best to ensure that your child is happy and healthy from the very start. When feeding your little one solid foods, especially for the first time, there are many questions you will find yourself asking. What food is safe for an infant? What if your child has allergies? How will you deal with a picky eater?
By working with our Registered Dietitians, you will not only learn strategies for working through these challenges, but you will also learn how to make mealtime a fun and positive experience for both you and your child.
And of course, our registered dietitian will take care of mom’s needs too. During your counselling sessions, you can discuss how to deal with issues such as optimal nutrition for breastfeeding, post-partum weight loss, and lifelong healthy eating habits.
Dieitians play an important role in maintaining your health and nutrition. As humans we are all created uniquely, and our needs are not the same as someone else we may know. A Dietitian can help you make healthy choice, treat illnesses and achieve your goals whether it be weight loss, lifestyle changes, fitness goals etc. This is why it is important for the whole family to receive counseling!
Remember that healthy eating and good nutrition today will not only make you feel better and more energetic, but it could also potentially prevent long-term problems and illness.
