Nutritional Services For Eating Disorder Recovery
Dietitians at The Emily Program co-facilitate each one of our intensive programs and work closely with therapists and medical staff. Your child’s care team includes a dietitian as well as other health professionals who specialize in eating disorders.
At your child’s first meeting, a dietitian completes a thorough assessment of his or her eating patterns and history, food and weight-related concerns, weight history, and particular dietary needs. You’ll work with your child and the dietitian to establish an approach to eating that fits your child’s recovery needs. And you’ll have a plan to make it happen.
Ongoing counseling with a dietitian helps your child eat regular, nourishing meals and snacks as you progress on your recovery journey. Together with your dietitian, you and your child will develop strategies to overcome barriers along the way. You’ll help your child build coping skills and make peace with food.
Our dietitians provide valuable nutrition education in one-on-one sessions, group sessions, intensive program meals and groups, and family education. We provide you with accurate nutrition information and help your child practice mindful eating skills.
