Overweight is a complex problem. This means that we look at the problem much broader than just calorie intake and energy expenditure.  What exactly your child needs in terms of nutrients depends on his or her age, activities and personal situation. When your child is struggling with his or her weight, it may be difficult to change his/her behaviors. There are solutions.  We help you understand the “why” and help you with the “how” to help your child.

Did your child just receive a diagnosis of coeliac disease or NCGS? Do not panic! Gluten-free diet requires some experience, but with our gluten free kids program you will get the hang of it! Gluten-free lunchbox, treats, coeliac talk at school, on holiday with coeliac disease, groceries, product choices and many more. We are happy to help you! Get in touch with us!

Children with autoimmune conditions such as Crohn's disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA) or Diabetes type 1 need specific therapy. This therapy is a special blend of adjustments in your child's diet, stress level and lifestyle to restore your child's immune system so that he or she can experience good health again.

Food hypersensitivity is divided into two forms: allergic food hypersensitivity and non-allergic food hypersensitivity. The allergic form is also called a food allergy and the non-allergic form is also called a food intolerance. An allergic food hypersensitivity is treated by removing foods containing the allergen from your child's diet. Non-allergic food hypersensitivity is treated by an elimination and reintroducing diet. For the right nutritional therapy approach please contact us.

Our dietician coaches children and their parents. Because only if you set a good example yourself, your children will learn healthy eating habits. But then it is important to know what those good habits are and how you can transfer them to your child. You will learn exactly how to do this during our guidance. Every child is very welcome, with small and big questions!

As a parent, you may wonder how to help your child or teen with their weight. On one hand,  you worry that if you say nothing, you could miss a chance to help your child with their health. On the other hand, you risk shaming your child or possibly causing a pattern of disordered eating.  If you do not know exactly how to do this, we are at your service with all questions regarding your schoolchild and teens.

There are several reasons for seeing a dietitian. For example, because your child has a bowel reaction. stomach pain or diarrhea. Maybe, because there is a food hypersensitivity? Or just not the right food habits?

Please contact us to discuss the possibilities.

Children's cooking workshops are currently given individually in connection with the corona virus. Do you have a child who loves vegetables and everything healthy? The chances for this are not very big. How do you get your child to eat healthy? You will learn this during our children's cooking workshops (together with your child). These workshops are suitable for all children from 0 to 18 years old. During the cooking workshops, your children will develop also other different skills such as: cutting, rolling, kneading, stirring, planing and also working together and using all the different sizes and units..

In our practice you can also come for nutrition and diet advice by autoimmune disorders such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Colitis Ulcerosa, Crohn's disease, Lupus, MS, Hashimoto's disease, or other. Trought healthy lifestyle we can positively influence the low-grade inflammation in these conditions.

If you have been diagnosed with coeliac disease, dermatitis herpetiformis or gluten sensitivity, it is important that you follow a gluten-free diet. Have you just been diagnosed and can you no longer see the trees through the forest? Get in touch with us! Our dietitian is expert and provides evidence based guidance to help you manage the challenges of living gluten free. 

During pregnancy, the mother's body must provide the baby with all the necessary nutrients for nine months. Healthy eating is therefore of great importance, both for the pregnant woman and the child.

There are various causes for overweight. The main reason is eating the wrong foods. In our practice we offer an expert weight reduction program. Do not achieve your desired weight with diet, but by learning to eat differently.

Type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance can seriously damage yur health, that's why it is important to take steps as soon as possible. Dietary advice given for type 2 diabetes is different for each person and depends from your goals, wishes, possibilities, your health, use of medicines, living situation, etc.

If you suffer from one or more of the following complaints: bloating, constipation or diarrhea, and your doctor cannot find a cause for this, it may very well be that you have a food intolerance. Trough an elimination-provocation diet we can found out any food intolerances.

With small changes in your diet and lifestyle, complaints such as stomach pain, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, nausea and heartburn can quickly dissapear. 

Contact our dietitian to discuss the 

possibilities.

Do you suffer from nagging, cramping or stabbing pain in your stomach? Bloating, flatulence, nausea, diarrhea or constipation? Then you may suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

PCOS, or Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome, occurs in 5 to 10 percent of all women and can lead to all kinds of unpleasant complaints. A healthy weight and a good diet can help to significantly reduce the symptoms
