Nutrition Services Program

Children and youth with special health care needs often have nutrition, growth, and other feeding challenges. CHSC has the capacity to provide families with a one-time nutrition assessment at a provider’s request with follow-up care coordination as needed.

CHSC’s Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs) primarily serve children through Early ACCESS, Iowa’s Early Intervention Program serving children 0-3 years old. RDNs are able to serve children and youth throughout Iowa via telehealth.

As part of a public health agency, CHSC’s RDNs facilitate nutrition-focused infrastructure- building activities including training groups on Motivational Interviewing techniques; assisting Iowa communities in addressing the unique nutrition needs of CYSHCN; and pursuing public partnerships to deliver nutrition education pertaining to CYSHCN across the state.
