Food: fuel for our bodies

Clinical nutrition is the study of the relationship between food and a healthy body. The pediatric clinical nutrition team works with you and other health care providers to make sure your child receives proper nutrition at home. We create nutrition plans that address your child's condition.

Besides studying how food works in the body, nutritionists are interested in how the environment affects the safety and quality of foods, and what influences these factors have on health and disease. At University of Minnesota Children's Hospital, we have registered dietitians who see patients in our clinics as well as in the hospital.

Among the conditions we treat are:

  • Cancer
  • Cardiac (heart) abnormalities
  • Celiac disease
  • Crohn's disease
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Diabetes
  • Food allergies
  • Growth and weight issues
  • Pediatric obesity
  • Phenylketonuria (PKU) and other metabolic disorders
  • Prematurity
  • Renal (kidney) disease
    • peritoneal dialysis
    • hemodialysis
  • Short-bowel syndrome
