Normal growth and development are our goals for your child. Excellent growth and good nutritional habits from the very beginning are extremely beneficial in CF. Cystic fibrosis can affect nutrition in many ways. The recommended diet is high in calories and protein with liberal amounts of fat and salt. This “Dream Diet” is contrary to the health recommendations for the general public. We include growth and nutrition monitoring at every visit, and our nutritionists are available at each visit and by telephone as a resource for parents.
