Pediatric Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT)
Medical nutrition therapy (MNT) can help treat or control several diseases and disorders. Often, MNT is the first treatment children receive to help manage conditions such as obesity and diabetes.
A medical nutrition therapy plan depends on your child's needs. It can range from a few dietary tweaks to total parenteral nutrition (intravenous feeding). The goal of an MNT program is to put your child on the track to better health so other treatments or therapies can work better.
