IBS doesn't just effect the child, but the whole family. Diet is one tool to help manage this condition in kids, and many times we see the Low FODMAP diet as a first line approach. But should we be using the Low FODMAP diet in kids?
Julia Celestini, RD and I discuss how and when to properly use the Low FODMAP diet in paediatrics.
Julia is a Registered Dietitian in Ontario, Canada. Julia completed her dietetic training at SickKids hospital in Toronto, Ontario in 2019. SickKids hospital is one of the largest pediatric centres in Canada and uniquely offers a pediatric-focused dietetic internship. Julia is also trained in the low FODMAP diet for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) through Monash University. Following her internship Julia started her own private practice combing her 2 greatest passions - pediatric nutrition and digestive health. She provides family-centred care to infants, children and teenagers with complex gastrointestinal conditions across (most of) the country. She supports her patients in their journey to finding symptom relief and developing a positive relationship with food.
