Nutrition for children from vulnerable populations: case study Presented by: Ju-Lin Lee, APD
A 2-year-old boy was referred to Ju-Lin with growth faltering and delayed texture progression. He had recently been admitted to hospital with asthma. Ju-Lin describes the context of her practice as a community health dietitian. Her initial assessment includes dietary assessment, feeding history and the families food security. Using Ellen Satters’ model of division of responsibility she creates dietary interventions which are sensitive to the family’s financially disadvantaged situation and culturally sensitive. Ju-Lin describes the toddlers progress over the following 12 months including liaising with other members of the health care team and community support groups.

She has completed a Master of Public Health, focusing on child public health nutrition.
