FPIES and Nutrition
Individualized nutritional management is at the heart of every treatment plan for children diagnosed with FPIES. Just as any food allergy limits the affected child’s diet, an FPIES diagnosis can dramatically impact his/her ability to take in appropriate nutrients due to food restrictions.
As Registered Dietitian Nutritionists, children diagnosed with FPIES may be referred to you. You may see infants and their mothers for help with nutrition related to breast feeding, with or without elimination diets.Families may turn to you for help planning foods trials, or for help in learning new ways how to use the same tired, safe-ingredient lists.
You may also be called on to educate families and professionals about label reading, balancing limited diets, and many other ways to best manage nutrition in order to help little ones thrive.
The resources on this page have been selected to help fill your professional FPIES toolbox. If there are additional resources you would like to share with us, please connect with us today! If you are in need of additional resources or support, please reach out to us– we would love to help!
