Method (4-11 years) – How does an appointment with the dietician work?

Boy with cauliflowerThe first time you visit me together with one of your parents we have an introductory meeting. This interview is free of obligation and your parents can decide after the interview whether they want to start counseling. In that case we will make an appointment for an intake interview. Together with your parents, we will see what I can do for you. To be able to do that, I will first ask you some questions. These questions are not only about what you eat, but also about which school you attend, whether you have brothers and sisters and what you enjoy doing. I am also very curious if you know what a dietician is and does. I am not only going to ask you questions, I will also measure and weigh you. Of course you can always ask me questions if you want to know something. You will probably visit me about 6 to 8 times. During these visits we will discuss how you are doing and you and your parents can ask me questions.
