Nutrition Services

At Community HealthCare System, we believe a lifelong healthy diet is part of a well-balanced lifestyle. No changing fads here. Mastering the basics of nutrition simply comes down to understanding the food groups and becoming more aware of calories and the roles that specific nutrients play in a healthy diet.

Whether you need simple nutrition guidance or ongoing support to overcome a specific medical or weight concern, CHCS’s experienced and understanding dietitians integrate nutrition counseling with your overall health goals to help you achieve and sustain a healthy lifestyle.

In addition to general and preventive nutrition consultations, we have several specialty areas to help you, including:

  • Allergies.
  • Bone health.
  • Cardiovascular nutrition.
  • Celiac disease.
  • Cholesterol control.
  • Diabetes self-management.
  • Family health—practical child nutrition information.
  • Hypertension control.
  • Meal planning for healthy eating.
  • Nutrition 4 Life.
  • Nutrition support for those unable to meet nutrition needs by an oral diet.
  • Specialized diets for clinical restrictions.
  • Sports nutrition.
