How can a dietitian help you?
Dietitians are qualified and regulated health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutritional problems at an individual and wider public-health level.
They use the most up-to-date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease which they translate into practical guidance to enable people to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices.
Pregnancy is a good time to think about what you’re eating. What you eat now will help your baby to grow healthily and give them the best start in life and help you to feel your best. This food Fact Sheet will help you make those good food choices.
Allow plenty of time. Cooking with children can take up to twice as long as normal
Get organized. Make sure you have everything you need before you start. Check the recipe carefully and make a list of everything you need, including equipment
Repeat after us: a bit of mess is ok. Don’t get stressed about it – it’s all part of the process. Clean up as you go and get kids to help with this too
Who’s doing what? Put some thought into which cooking tasks your child will be able to do. To begin with, you may need to work this out by trial and error. If you’re cooking with more than one child, think about whether they’re going to take turns or have different jobs. A little bit of planning can save a lot of arguing!
Keep things simple to start with while you get a feel for what they can do.
Don’t panic if things go wrong. Even if your recipes don’t turn out like the pictures, you will have had fun and learned some lessons for the next time you try.
Dietitians are the only qualified and regulated health professionals with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) that assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutritional problems for both individuals and the wider public.
