The Nutrition Center at Boston Children’s Hospital is dedicated to providing infants, children, adolescents and young adults with comprehensive nutrition assessments, a vital part of a fully customized care plan for many conditions. We design balanced diets to help patients manage their condition, grow and develop, and, ultimately, improve their quality of life. Part of the #1 ranked Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (U.S. News & World Report, 2014-15), our team of dietitians is considered the best in the country. But what matters most is how our highly personalized care can help make your child feel better and get back to being a kid again.

Dedicated to innovation in pediatric care

We offer a robust clinical program. Each of our dietitians—we have over 50—is highly specialized. So whether your child has been diagnosed with a common condition or a rare disease, we have the expertise to help.  

  • We have set national standards of nutritional care in several areas, including intestinal failure, stem cell transplantation, critical care, inborn errors of metabolism, home parenteral nutrition and others.
  • We perform advanced assessment procedures in our state-of-the-art Nutrition Assessment Laboratory.
  • Our consultative services include a comprehensive nutrition assessment and the development of a care plan appropriate for age, optimal growth and development, and quality of life for each child and family. 

Our dietitians and clinicians are also actively involved in research, collaborating with doctors around the world to learn more about even the most rare conditions.


With over 50 highly specialized registered dietitians, the Nutrition Center at Boston Children’s has the expertise to help your child manage their condition, no matter how rare.
