Pediatric Nutrition

Working closely with your family and your child’s referring physician, experienced UMass Memorial Children's Medical Center pediatric dietitians (registered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration) provide a broad range of nutritional services.

Conditions We Treat

Disorders we treat include:

  • Failure to thrive
  • Diabetes
  • Feeding problems
  • Enteral and parenteral feedings
  • Gastrointestinal disorders
  • Food allergies and intolerance
  • Obesity
  • Constipation/diarrhea
  • High-risk infants
  • Eating disorders
  • Picky eaters

If your child has special dietary needs, our team is experienced in providing tube feeds and intravenous feeds (total parenteral nutrition).

To help parents with children who have a wide range of issues that lead to difficulty eating, from food aversions to medical problems, we also offer a Pediatric Feeding Clinic to work with families in developing strategies to improve feeding skills and the nutritional status of your child.
