            Hello. I’m Teri and I’m a caring, understanding dietitian. I counsel people of any age who live in Alberta. I cover almost all nutrition and related topics.

Do you want to:
‱ Become healthier, reach a body-related (e.g. weight) goal, follow a diet or eating pattern (e.g. intuitive eating), or change a habit? 
‱ Save food-related money and time? 
‱ Prevent or treat a health condition (e.g. a digestion issue) or symptom?
‱ Improve your mental health (e.g. reduce stress)? 
‱ Feel more satisfied with who you are and what your life is like? 

We can discuss what goals to focus on and how to work towards reaching them. 

I can do many tasks such as:
‱ Do problem solving, find/teach information, and discuss feelings/thoughts
‱ Check if you’re meeting your nutrition needs
‱ Create resources and physical-activity/meal plans
‱ Guide you while you try preparing food

I can use various apps (e.g. Cronometer and Mealime) and methods (e.g. cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness).

Dietitian services are income tax deductible and I can do direct billing to most insurance companies. 

I do not cover type 1 diabetes, insulin injections, and tube or IV feeding. Also, ignore the word “specialties” and “package” on this page.

Frequently Asked Questions

Pediatric Dietitians: Your Child's Nutrition Champion

Feeding children can be hard, and it is common for families and caregivers to want or need expert support to ensure their child is able to eat all the food and drink that they need for their growth and development.

A pediatric dietitian, with their specialized knowledge and skills, can be a great resource and partner in fostering healthy eating habits in your child.

We'll explore the role of a pediatric dietitian, how they can help your child, and how to find the right professional for your family's needs.

The Importance of Pediatric Dietitians

Developing Healthy Eating Habits Early On

Pediatric dietitians play a pivotal role in helping children develop healthier eating habits from an early age. Their guidance can help promote the growth and development of the child as well as confidence for caregivers and parents through supportive nutrition counselling.

Addressing Unique Nutritional Needs

Children's eating behaviours and nutritional needs change substantially as they grow and develop from infants, to toddlers, to pre-school children, school-aged children and adolescents. Pediatric dietitians provide support and guidance aimed to help caregivers successfully feed their kiddos through the different stages as they grow.

From infancy to adolescence, dietitians can help guide parents on various topics including: division of responsibility, food environment, food safety, healthy eating habits and manners, menu planning, and where needed, nutritional plans to accommodate growth spurts, activity levels, and developmental milestones.

Providing Expertise in Children's Nutrition

Pediatric dietitians have specialized training in the unique nutritional needs of children, which makes them well-equipped to offer expert guidance on a variety of topics, from breastfeeding and lactation support, introducing solid foods, and managing food allergies and intolerances.

Areas of Expertise for Pediatric Dietitians

Infant Nutrition

Pediatric dietitians can offer guidance on breastfeeding and formula feeding, as well as appropriate timing for introducing solid foods (also called complementary feeding) according to developmental readiness, which food and drink to start with and when, and how to assess for tolerance.

Managing Food Allergies and Intolerances

If you are caring for a child with a food allergy or intolerance, a pediatric dietitian can help you navigate the challenges of creating a balanced and enjoyable diet or meal plan while avoiding allergens. They can also provide guidance on identifying allergens, reading food labels, organizing your kitchen, and creating a nutrition care plan that meet your child's nutritional needs.

Supporting Children with Special Needs

For children with special needs, diseases or conditions, a pediatric dietitian can provide tailored nutrition guidance to address specific challenges, including difficulty swallowing, limited food preferences, or medication interactions.

Adolescent Nutrition

As children enter their teenage years, they experience rapid growth (puberty), increased energy needs, hormonal changes, and increasing awareness of body image.

A pediatric dietitian will engage with adolescents along with their families with a focus on energy, vitality, feeling good, and the adolescent's self-identified goals.

Long-Term Impact of Pediatric Dietitians on Children's Health

Pediatric dietitians can have a positive and lasting impact on children's health and well-being, setting the foundation for lifelong healthier eating habits. Some long-term benefits include:

  • Prevention of chronic diseases: establishing healthy eating habits early in life can reduce the risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic conditions later in life.

  • Improved mental health: a balanced diet and healthy relationship with food can positively impact children's mental health, including their mood, cognitive function, and overall well-being.

  • Stronger immune system: good nutrition can help boost children's immune systems, helping them fight off infections and illnesses more effectively.

  • Promoting a healthy relationship with food: balanced and flexible eating habits and a positive relationship with food to last throughout their life.

Disclaimer: Nutritionist vs Dietitian

In Canada, there is sometimes a difference between the terms Dietitian and nutritionist. While both titles can be use interchangeably in some provinces, this is not the case in others.

The title ‘Dietitian’ is protected by law across Canada in every province. The term ‘nutritionist’ however, is only a protected title in Alberta, Quebec, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.

Only nutrition professionals who are regulated and have protected titles have a legal scope of practice which includes: providing individualized nutrition counselling, medical nutrition therapy, and nutrition education to individuals with specific health concerns.

That said, while the term "nutritionist" is sometimes used on this website, it is important to note that we only work with licensed Registered Dietitians in good standing with their provincial regulatory bodies. That means you can be assured that all of our partners providing nutrition counselling meet the education and ethical standards set by all of the provincial regulatory bodies across Canada.

We strongly recommend that you consult with a Registered Dietitian (or other recognized healthcare professional such as a doctor) when you are considering making any significant dietary changes.

Rest assured that on Online Nutrition, every nutrition professional is vetted to confirm they are a Registered Dietitian in good standing with their provincial regulatory body.
