DDs diets gone off the rails again. Shes also sick again. She also keeps getting strange rashes on her back and face (I thought heat rash, GP thinks its viral rash, wondering if its diet related)
I started a thread the other day about her nails (and how they dont grow/havnt grown since 4 months old) and have been googling iron (something i dont think she ever gets) deficiences (sp sorry)
Anyway its gotten to a point where I feel DH and I need professional help/advice and guidence on her diet and general health.
Who do you think would be better to speak to about this? a dietitian or nutritionist? Shes a 2yo (and a bit)

I think you need to start with a paediatrician personally.

I believe a Nutritionist would be the better option.

I'd probably go to the paed first, otherwise a dietitian who specialises in kids. If you see a nutritionist, just check their qualifications, lots of people call themselves nutritionists but the level of qualification can vary a fair bit.

Oh, if you're worried about iron you can try sneaking parsley into her food and watch how much dairy she has - too much calcium can inhibit iron absorption.
