Meet Your Child’s Nutritionist

We believe every child is full of potential and when given the right nurturing environment and nourishment, the child will thrive and do good for mankind.

At Kids Eat Right and Thrive, we focus on healing from the inside out with the functional medicine approach.

We emphasize on addressing the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient (when age-appropriate) and family in a therapeutic partnership.

By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.

We spend time with you and your child, listening to the histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease.
