Nutritionist for mature tween
I am seeking a nutritionist for my overweight 11-year-old daughter. She's mature and has gone through puberty, so I am looking for someone who can work with this age group to be positive in talking about nutrition and weight, as well as to be sensitive to her emotional issues around these topics. We have been working with our pediatrician, but she is very cut and dry - for instance, she doesn't seem to understand that it's not enough to keep snacks/treats out of the house, as these things then become "forbidden fruit" and my daughter finds ways of getting these things from her friends at school. I also feel that at this point, we need to talk to an expert who really understand what is going on with her diet and where we should focus our attention. Plus, my daughter feels judged and now dreads going to the doctor. I didn't seen anything in the BPN archives. Would also love any advice from someone who has "been there."
