Evaluation of Child`s Diet
History: 9 years old, 53``, 57 lbs, healthy and very active child. Brighton is having peer pressure-,a condition which involves peers influence on person`s behavior and attitude towards something or somebody. This has influenced his choice and preference for food, thus affecting his healthy eating habits.
Brighton is a bright young child who loves playing with his age-mates. He is very active in games and plays hockey and skis at school. He eats dinner every night with the family members. However, his eating habit has changed for the past six months and he is sneaking sweets, and craving for white foods such as pasta, white bread and potatoes. In addition, he is declining to eat mainly at family meals, which have raised a lot of concerns from the parents. There is therefore need for dietary advice for the child in order to ensure healthy lifestyles.
Brighton first provided me with a list of foods that was not quite accurate, later after more talking to him and his mom, we did discover more unhealthy choices during lunch at school.
In addition Brighton gets eczema outbreaks on his body quite often. The mom tries to help these outbreaks with oatmeal baths and lotions.
