Need some feedback RD's. I recently had an outpt appt with father & son where son is Vegetarian (will eat only pepperoni pizza in diet). I really didn't want to say "hide blended veggies in foods" while son was present. Father states he was given a bottle recently and now does not want to consume foods. Will get Ensure 2x/day (morning/evening).

I started a new job seeing outpatients, most have medicaid, but the services are not covered. I am not working directly with the pediatric clinic but just as a hospital dietitian. I just wanted to hear of other RD's working in pediatric clinic
I actually had a question about my two year old daughter. She has real bad constipation. It's chronic and her doctor perscribed miralax and it seems to have stopped working. Her diet is half vegetarian (morning star from her mom) and a soy milk and meat diet at my house.
I know that morning star is high in GMO, is there anything I should know if that w

I was recently contacted by a facility that was approved to participate in a head start program. They are on a time crunch to get this done but do not seem 100% organized.
I am looking for advice on what the current rate would be to review menus and ensure they match the necessary meal pattern for children 3-5 years old.
I believe there will be some allergy specific menus as well. The job wil

I'm seeking assistance in setting up EHR for nutrition protocols for Diabetes treatment for pediatric population. I will like some guidance from dietitians who currently uses EHR to conduct nutrition assessment using the NCP process of care.

Most of my experience in dietetics is with adults. I am currently an outpatient counselor, but have recently acquired a consultant position at a pediatric hospital. I am familiar with the equation for determining nutrient needs for overweight children, as I frequently get consulted for such things on an outpatient basis, but what do you typically use to estimate nutrient needs for peds inpatient?

I am trying to gather information regarding protocols in other NICUs for monitoring, prevention, and treating Rickets.
