Prader-Willi Syndrome…

babyhandFor the last 10 years I have worked with patients with Prader-Willi Syndrome.  These families are some of the most amazing and determined I have met.  If you need information and support on how and what to feed your child, I can help.  Prader-Willi Syndrome is nutritionally complex, but there is hope. Learning as much as you can about the diagnosis helps better manage the syndrome for years to come.

Counseling topics include…

  • Introduction to solid foods
  • Breastfeeding and PWS
  • Picky eating
  • Optimal amounts of carbohydrate, protein and fat
  • Appropriate weight gain
  • Preventing dehydration
  • Meal and snack planning
  • Behavioral management
