Nutritional Consultation Q & A

What is a nutritional consultation?

A nutritional consultation is where you and your child discuss nutritional needs and food preferences with Dr. Mathur. She makes sure your child is eating the foods they need in the portions they need to achieve optimal health while managing any required weight loss. She also educates and guides your child in nutrition so that they have the skills they need to make healthy eating decisions when they are on their own.

What role does nutrition play in weight control?

Good nutrition is essential for growth, development and healing. 

Poor nutrition leads to pre-diabetes, hypercholesterolemia, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia and fatty liver.

By optimizing nutritional intake, you are ensuring that children and youth have the fundamental building blocks necessary for good health.

What happens at the consultation?

At the consultation, Dr. Mathur elicits a detailed history and possible triggers for weight gain. She also conducts an exam and reviews the blood work.

She then creates a personalized diet, exercise and lifestyle modification plan.
