nutrition
Rexdale Community Health Centre’s nutrition program utilizes a registered dietitian to provide one-on-one counseling and group education to people of all ages, who would like to manage chronic conditions, achieve lifestyle changes, and improve their overall health. Rexdale Community Health Center offers FREE Nutrition services, including counseling from our Registered Dietitian. At Rexdale CHC, Dietitians are valuable members of the healthcare team, working collaboratively with clients, caregivers, and other healthcare professionals, including doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, and chiropodists. The nutrition counseling session is a one on one session to address any nutrition-related issues such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, osteoporosis, IBS, celiac, allergies, intolerances, nutrient deficiencies (e.g. Iron), weight management, and how to eat healthy during any stage of life including pregnancy, lactation, infant nutrition, preschoolers, schoolers, teenagers, adults and elderly. The Registered Dietitian works together with the client to individualize information, care plans, and programs to meet the unique needs of clients and communities. Nutrition counseling improves general eating behaviors associated with good health. Continuing monitoring with follow-up visits after the first visit depending on the unique client needs are also provided. During all the nutrition care process, the Dietitian helps clients:
  • Reduce diet-related chronic diseases
