CHILDREN’S DIGESTIVE HEALTH
If your child has been diagnosed with IBS by their Doctor we are happy to arrange for one of our dietitians to see them. Like adults a low FODMAP diet can work well to relieve IBS symptoms in children. Studies have shown that carbohydrate malabsorption contributes to a significant proportion of children presenting with functional abdominal pain. Dietary management has been shown as an effective way to manage this. More about IBS can be viewed on our IBS blog.
Our gastrointestinal dietitians will guide you on understanding your child’s food intolerances and how to work with your child’s needs. Please note it is important to ensure your child is meeting a balanced diet and food should not be restricted without a confirmed medical reason.
