Specializing in pediatric nutrition

As parents, Charlene Kennedy and her team of dietitians know how concerning it can be to see your child not eating properly or struggling with an allergy or health disorder. Each of our dietitians seeing pediatric clients have over 17 years of experience with the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO), working with kids of all ages and conditions. We draw on this practical experience and expertise to provide parents with the knowledge and support they need to help their kids grow and develop properly.

Charlene and her team have experience treating infants, toddlers, kids and teens with the following issues:

  • Food Intolerances & Allergies 
    (e.g., gluten, eggs, nuts, fish, soy, milk, etc.)
  • Weight Management
  • Picky Eaters
  • Intestinal Health Disorders 
    (e.g., celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease, 
    irritable bowel syndrome & Low FODMAPS diet)
  • Poor Growth/Failure to Thrive
  • Nutrient Deficiencies 
    (e.g., iron, calcium, vitamin D, fibre, protein)

If you are concerned with your child’s nutritional health, book an appointment for a customized plan of action that can help you help them achieve optimal health.
