Improving children’s health and development through nutrition.
"Understanding the complex interplay of micro-and macronutrients and neurodevelopment is key to moving beyond simply recommending a "good diet" to optimizing nutrient delivery for the developing child." - The American Academy of Pediatrics.
Hi! My name is Ann Westerhaus and I am a Registered Dietitian, specializing in pediatric nutrition. I believe in the incredible healing power of nutritious food and adequate nutrition!
I founded Pediatric Nutrition Therapy in 2017 after witnessing first-hand the lack of nutrition resources and the overwhelming need for accessible dietitian services for children and their families in the Twin Cities. The goal of my practice is to take the time to EMPOWER & EDUCATE parents on the importance of individualized nutrition for their child, developing nutritious meal plans to provide sufficient calories, protein, fluid and micronutrients based on the individual child’s stage of life, growth patterns and medical diagnosis from infancy thru adolescence!
