Nutrition – Dietary Assessments

Over 90% of children suffer from some or other dietary deficiencies, often leading to acute and chronic lifelong problems.  Most pediatric clinics are unable to provide dietary assessments for their patients and provide sustainable dietary solutions (meal plans). 

Under this program, pediatricians receive a red-flag screening system by which they can send pre-consultation and self assessment forms to their patients and the system points out the red flags. Pediatricians can then prescribe a dietary assessment and meal plan by a pediatric nutritionist or a dietary assessment services provider on the system

The program includes:

  1. New National Red Flag Guidelines published by IAP to detect the need for a nutritional assessment.

The red flag guidelines indicating the need for nutritional assessment are available here:

  1. Training on the red flag guidelines to pediatricians by IAP.

  1. Science and methodology for the Dietary assessments and meal planning program which includes: conducting a nutritional assessment, delivering a whole food kitchen, culture and family friendly meal plan solution & ensuring enhanced compliance by mothers.
