With gratefully received funding from Nutricia, we are able to provide support in the following areas.

  1. Expert guidance: Our dietitians are experienced professionals and offer tailored advice based on individual needs and health conditions.
  2. Education and support: The service includes educational materials to aid with further support to help parents and carers understand the dietary restrictions of their child, make informed food choices, and manage their condition effectively.
  3. Communication with your child’s GP: Our dietitians work transparently with your child’s GP by sharing reports and recommendations to ensure comprehensive support and integration of dietary strategies.
  4. Empowerment: Our goal is to also empower parents in navigating the dietary needs of their child confidently, improving quality of life while managing their allergies or intolerances effectively.

Amazing, I’ve since had the confidence to challenge the GP for referral which we now have gotten. We also challenged the peanut allergy and have since reintroduced it in to her diet with advice from the hospital as recommended by the dietitian.

Amazing service. The booking process was easy, the experience on the call was great and the follow up was really detailed. Absolutely transformed my experience with weaning my allergy baby, giving me the confidence to introduce allergens and filled in the gaps ahead of NHS dietitian appointment, which won’t be for a couple of months. Thank you.

I felt really listened too and the support and advised I received so beyond expectation. I cannot thank allergy UK and the dietitian enough.

Such an amazing service! The most useful interaction I have had with a health care professional about my daughters allergy and plans moving forward! Thankyou so much
