Nutrition Consultations for Children by
Dr. Yasmine Haddad – Nutritionist in Dubai
Dr. Yasmine strongly believes the key to a healthy life is an early start. It is all about preventing disease, obesity, or a nutritional deficiency. She has developed an obesity prevention program that has received outstanding results. It is never too early or too late to start learning about eating better. Yasmine sees babies from birth, including toddlers for starting solids consultations, reversing picky eating or preventing excess weight gain in early childhood. She also treat families as she believes the key to change is improving family eating habits and lifestyle as a whole and educating parents as well as care givers on nutrition and healthy habits and recipes.
Nutritional counseling for children and teenagers is a very sensitive matter. It needs a lot of diplomacy and a whole lot of love. She uses a very gentle loving approach with children as she fully understands how weight can be causing concern, distress or clashes in the house. To start she really spends time gaining the trust of the child and developing rapport. Helping children with weight loss or being underweight, is no easy task- yet is totally achievable with the right diplomacy and tactic.
Taking time to explain to a child about healthy nutrition, which food best to eat for their age and body, helps kids understand their part on their journey towards healthy nutrition. She loves kids to embrace a healthy body image- away from feeling guilty or feeling bad about their body. It is indeed a very sensitive topic to kids according to their age. Kids depending on their age may do an Inbody analysis to give a better understanding of muscle vs fat composition in the body. Parents and children both love Yasmine’s awesome consultation. Many gifts later and a nutritional program for optimal results- parents are equipped with what they need to help their little one achieve their health goals.
During her thorough nutrition consultation, yasmine also performs Nutritional Focused Physical Exam (NFPE) to better understand the nutritional needs of the child and to help rule out any vitamin deficiency or malnutrition. She may also perform blood tests and food intolerance tests if needed at myPediaclinic.
