Dietetics

A diet prescribed according to individual need is an inherent part of the therapy. Besides an adequate diet following the current recommendations of the Nutritional Society of Germany (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Ernährung) we offer special diets related to diseases, for instance diabetes diet, weight-reducing diet, low-allergen basic diet as well as vegetarian diets

Patients and parents receive training in the basics of nutritional medicine; if necessary, this training may be enhanced through individual consultations. Cookery courses in the diet training kitchen are offered to parents and individual children; they help the participants to gain practical experience in preparing diets and recognizing the taste of healthy food.
