Additional Benefits of Nutrition Counseling
Prevent Medical Conditions
A healthy diet can contribute to the prevention of disorders like high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, and iron deficiencies, so your child can live a healthier life unhindered by these conditions.
Introduce New Foods
Picky eaters often don't get the nutrients they need and can be unwilling to try new foods based on the way the food looks, or past experiences with food. Allison can help you introduce your child to a variety of new foods by improving their presentation and making them taste more appetizing.
Learn to Cook
Even if you're an excellent chef, Allison can teach you how to hone your skills even further and get more creative in the kitchen. After creating a personalized nutrition plan for your child, she will make sure you have everything you need to carry it out.
Nutrition Counseling and Insurance
Many insurance companies reimburse for nutrition therapy services. Depending on the reason for your nutrition therapy, your insurance may contribute to the cost. Allison Schulman Nutrition accepts many insurance plans so this counseling can fit comfortably into your budget.
