It is not rare to come across children who are considered picky eaters or turn their noses to new foods. Providing your child with the right balance and variety of nutrients provides them with the proper nourishment to fuel them into their adulthood. Your child’s nutrition journey is different from everyone else’s and On the Ball is here to support and guide you and your child in a way that works for you.
Our holistic nutritionist addresses the unique needs of each child and observes the way that they react to different foods and nutrients. Pediatric holistic nutrition is not just about eating the right things that encourage brain and muscle growth but instead also finding about how you can optimize food for your child’s needs. Our food can also increase our risks of eczema flare ups, headaches or difficulties sleeping. With On the Ball, we can create a customized plan for your child and family by taking into consideration biochemical identity, stress management, lifestyle and digestion.
The old saying “You are what you eat” has some truth behind it. Undernourished children are often not able to meet their full potential, whether it be in school or meeting growth milestones. The nourishment and lifestyle of your child is our top priority.
A holistic nutritionist can help with:
- Fighting picky eating habits
- Anxiety and mood swings
- Difficulty sleeping
- Meal planning
- Nutrition and supplements
- Finding hidden food allergies or sensitivities
