Hi Nat,

Thanks for your question. The only accredited undergraduate academic nutrition program which includes holistic principles is Bastyr in Washington state (

However, there are no academic programs which offer specialty training in pediatric nutrition, much less with a holistic focus. Programs would cover pediatric nutrition in a "life-cycle" course that reviews nutrition principles for all age groups (pregnant, nursing, infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood and senior). Some programs could theoretically have a pediatric nutrition course.

Internships which have a heavy clinical emphasis would likely include a pediatric nutrition rotation.

The Masters Program I hear the most about is at the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut ( This program may include some holistic content also.

You could also buy a pediatric nutrition manual, such as one at (click on "shop online", then "online catalog", then "pediatric resources".)

I hope that helps,
Mark Rifkin, MS, RD, LDN
