Nutrition & Dietary

Wayne Pediatrics provides individualized nutrition counseling for children, adolescents and their family. We understand that a one-size-fits-all approach is not a solution when it comes to changing life-long habits. Through compassionate listening, our dietitian takes the time to get to know you and your child to provide nutrition education, resources, and realistic goals that fit your family’s needs. Our registered dietitian is knowledgeable in pediatric nutrition and can offer evidenced-based nutrition advice to benefit patients diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, picky eaters or the following concerns and more:

  • General healthy eating
  • Weight maintenance or loss
  • Failure to thrive
  • Diabetes
  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
  • Elevated cholesterol levels
  • Hypertension
  • Kidney disease
  • Digestive problems (i.e. constipation, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), etc.)
  • Celiac disease and a gluten-free diet
  • Anemia
  • Vitamin D deficiency
  • Eating disorders
  • Vegetarian/vegan diets

Wayne Pediatrics is invested in improving the health of the Metropolitan Detroit community through free nutrition events hosted and/or resources provided throughout the year. Check out our most recent cookbook (PDF).

Nutrition is complex, but meeting with a dietitian doesn’t have to be. To secure an appointment for nutrition counseling, simply inform the registration clerk or your doctor. You may also schedule a one-on-one nutrition consultations by calling 313-448-9600.
