If you’re struggling with a food allergy or sensitivity and feeling sick after you eat, you may be eliminating foods from your diet in an attempt to figure out what could be causing your symptoms. Trying to manage symptoms on your own or self-diagnosing can be overwhelming and not getting down to the root cause of the problem. Eliminating all these foods from your diet often cause further issues and malnutrition.
Registered dietitians have the knowledge and experience to work with you and your doctor to help make sense of your food allergies or sensitivities. We use an evidence-based approach to help you understand your symptoms, find appropriate food substitutions, ensure nutrition adequacy despite the dietary restrictions, guidance on reintroducing foods back into your diet when it is deemed safe and prevent future reactions.
When you’re introducing foods to your baby, it’s important to use a preventative approach so you’re minimizing your child’s risk of developing food allergies.

Your dietician will also help you to make sure that your child’s nutritional needs are met through education and find clarity around foods that are safe for your baby to eat.
