Dietetic Consultations

Children with food allergies are more likely to develop a poor relationship with food

With the right help, most children will outgrow their allergies

Online appointments for children with food allergies

The NHS and the Department of Health recommend seeing a Dietitian prior to removing any food groups from a child's diet

Consultations

 

It is now recognised that food allergies in children are on the rise.

With so much ongoing research taking place in this area, it can be increasingly difficult for parents to navigate their child's allergies.

I offer one-to-one video dietetic appointments which you can attend from the comfort of your own home. 

Please ensure that have your child's measurements taken prior to the appointment as this will allow me to give you a more complete assessment.

Paediatric Specialities

  • Weaning

  • Growth

  • Fussy or picky eating

  • Plant based diets

  • Food allergies (IgE* and non-IgE) 

  • Lactose intolerance

*Note: Whilst I am able to help identify suspected IgE (immediate) allergies, I am unable to diagnose these and will recommend a referral to an NHS or private allergy service.

REVIEWS

I contacted Patricia as I was concerned about my 2 year old's diet. Patricia provided great insight to what areas we needed to improve and how to structure meals. She was very knowledgable, friendly, caring and at no point did I feel judged, which was always my worry about contacting anyone for help. The remote Zoom session was great and informative and the supportive materials afterwards really helped me to rejig meals to ensure that my girl's diet provides all nutrients needed.
I would recommend Patricia to anyone.
