Why is Nutritional Counseling important?
Proper nutrition and healthy eating patterns provide energy for daily activities, help prevent cardiovascular disease as well as some types of cancer later in life and improve your overall well-being. Yet appropriate nutrition is less likely during adolescence than during any other lifetime. Join our registered dietician or nutritionist and work on your nutritional needs!
