Physician Nutritionist Speaks at Meeting

Thank you to Martin D. Fried, MD FAAP, a physician nutrition specialist, who spoke at our most recent meeting on Jan. 9.

Dr. Fried answered many varied questions from the group relating to nutrition, allergies and digestion. His advice included moderation is the key to all dietary habits; milk is not a necessary component to a healthy diet, nutrients in milk can be gotten from a variety of other foods; and one of the best ways to determine if a child is getting adequate nutrition is if he/she is gaining the proper amount weight.
