Meet Our Registered Dietitian
Allison Lachowitz, RD, CSP, LDN, CNSC
If your child is a patient of a Novant pediatrician or pediatric specialist, you can receive free child nutrition advice and information from Allison Lachowitz, RD, CSP, LDN, CNSC, our registered dietitian.
Lachowitz is a registered dietitian and licensed dietitian/nutritionist, and is board certified as a Specialist in Pediatric Nutrition. She works out of the Novant Health Pediatric Gastroenterology office on Randolph Road in Charlotte. She is available free of charge to advise families dealing with everything from selective eaters to children whose nutrition is complicated by medical issues.
“For any growing child, nutrition is essential,” Lachowitz says. “You’re not going to grow when nutrition is lacking. And for children with special needs, if you don’t have a specialist who understands your child’s disease or medical history, the child misses out.”
Lachowitz considers a child’s individual health needs, and even likes and dislikes, before creating individualized nutrition recommendations for them. She works to make nutrition plans work not just for the child, but for the whole family.
Lachowitz helps children and families dealing with a variety of nutritional challenges, including:
- Failure To Thrive
- Feeding Disorders
- Food Allergies
- GI Disorders
- NICU Graduates
- Nutrition Support (G-Tube, J-Tube, etc.)
