There are some things in life that are just better together.  Metrowest Nutrition is excited to introduce you to our new partner, The Barrett Family Wellness Center where we hope to provide a “better together” approach to feeding your little ones.  The Barrett Family Wellness Center is a community-based, pediatric occupational and speech therapy facility. It was founded in April 2000 by Phyllis Barrett Samara, an experienced Occupational Therapist, who hoped to provide a family centered approach to patients’ care. The center is dedicated to enhancing the health and wellness of families and children affected by developmental problems including Sensory Integration Dysfunction, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, Nonverbal Learning Disability, Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome, Language Delays, and Articulation Errors and Apraxia.
Our resident pediatric dietitian, Ashley Bade Cronin RD, LDN, CSP will be starting office hours at the Barrett Family Wellness Center starting Friday April 4th.  Ashley hopes to bring her knowledge of pediatric nutrition and provide family focused care to parents and children struggling with picky eating, failure to thrive or any nutrition need at the Barrett Family Wellness Center. If you are interested in scheduling an appointment with Ashley please call 617-332-2282 extension 6.
As a kick-off to our partnership, Ashley will be providing a free workshop, “Keep Calm & Feed On” on Tuesday March 25th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the Barrett Family Wellness center to review the basics on picky eating and offer many stress-free steps to feeding your child. Please call 508-898-2688 if you’d like to attend the workshop.
