What is a pediatric dietitian? A pediatric dietitian is a registered dietitian (RD) who is a specialist in assessing the eating and feeding behaviors of infants, children, and adolescents.
A new year is upon us and with that comes the barrage of conversations (in-person & social media) about people’s resolutions to lose weight, get healthy, detox, or an array of other ways to attempt to control one’s body.
