Nutrition and Dietetics (Children)

The Nutrition and Dietetics Children’s Service offers advice and treatment for children and young people with eating difficulties and related problems as well as complex nutritional needs due to autistic spectrum conditions and physical and/or learning difficulties.

Our specially trained dieticians assess a patient's dietary intake, calculate nutritional needs and give individualised advice based on age, height and weight, medical condition and other requirements.

We take referrals for:

  • Help with weaning babies
  • Ex-premature infants
  • Poor weight gain
  • Fussy eating
  • Overweight/obesity
  • Food allergies
  • Nutritional deficiency (such as anaemia)
  • Constipation
  • Tube feeding
  • Autism with feeding/nutrition difficulties
  • Complex nutritional needs in light of physical or learning difficulties.

We see patients at Homerton Hospital, Hackney Ark, in community children’s centres, and in people’s homes.

Referral by health care professional or self-referral. If your child goes to a Hackney children’s centre, ask at reception to see the dietician.
