Nutrition Services

At Children First Pediatrics we believe in a medical home model that allows patients to receive the most services with the highest quality care possible right in our office.   Nutrition Services are offered to give our patients assistance at the same time of their well visit or coming just to see the nutritionist.

Yee Von is eager to assist our family with any nutritional needs ranging in services including:

  • Weight Management
  • Digestive Health
  • Chronic Medication and Appetite
  • Sports Nutrition
  • Picky Eaters
  • Developing Healthy Eating Habits in Toddlers
  • Cost Friendly Healthy Eating

Most insurances cover nutritional services when done in your primary care office (copays/deductibles apply) but there are some plans/benefit packages that do not.  Please check with your insurance but know that we make these services affordable to all of our patients regardless of insurance coverage to save you time from having to see a more expensive specialist elsewhere.   Call the office and speak to our staff if you have any further questions or would like to set up an appointment.
