Dietitians (dietetics) children’s

If your child or young person refuses food or has difficulty eating it’s important to seek help from your GP or health visitor who can check for possible medical causes and provide help and advice.

In Bromley, there are two key targeted services that can offer this support - the dietetics service and the speech and language therapy service.

The children’s team work with parents and carers of babies and children who are tube fed. They also offer dietary advice and support to parents and carers of babies and children with a range of clinical conditions, including food allergies and intolerances, faltering growth, feeding problems, fussy eating and weight management.

Dietitians (dietetics) adults

The adult team offer advice and support for special dietary needs and health conditions. They also provide advice and support to those who are tube fed.

Referrals to these services are through your GP or other health professional and you must be registered with a Bromley GP. Visit the Bromley Healthcare website for more information and clinic locations.
