Mary Bridge Children’s Pediatric Wellness program is committed to helping caregivers feed well so that children may eat well to grow and develop into the body that is right for them.
Our program for ages 2-17, provides access to Registered Dietitians who have expertise in helping families develop a positive relationship with food and raising competent eaters. The program's holistic approach can support lasting improvements for your child’s wellbeing and quality of life.
Our Program Philosophy:
- Emphasizes overall health (physical/social/emotional) and well-being of the child or adolescent.
- Highlights the strengths of each family member to support an environment that promotes healthy growth and development.
- Promotes living actively, eating in a healthy but not depriving way, and creating a nurturing environment that helps the child or adolescent develop and grow to his/her potential.
Our focus is on increasing evidence-based behaviors that support healthy lifestyles. We do not provide restrictive diets or emphasize weight.
