Introduction to Nutrition
The specific nutritional choices you make for your children are crucial. Good nutrition is essential to building good health in childhood and later as an adult. Muddy Creek Pediatrics and the American Academy of Pediatrics encourage parents to think of their nutritional decisions as health decisions.
The information contained here on our website is to introduce you to our philosophy on nutrition and give you basic guidelines. It is not meant to be a comprehensive resource and so we will refer you to additional outside sources we consider to be credible and medically sound. In addition, this content should not be used as a substitute for the medical care and advice we give you at Muddy Creek Pediatrics. There may be variations in nutritional counseling, care and treatment that Dr. Habel and Dr. O’Malley may recommend, based on the individual facts and circumstances of you, your child, and your family.
