Nutrition Counseling

Want to improve your overall health and wellness?

Inspira’s Nutrition Counseling services offers individual counseling for a wide range of nutritional needs at six convenient locations throughout Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem counties. One of our registered dietitians will provide you with a nutrition assessment, guide you through meal planning, and meet with you through a series of one-on-one sessions to help you achieve your optimal health and well being.

We understand the challenges of healthy eating and we will work along with you to help with your food preferences and health needs. With our nutrition counseling team’s guidance, you will learn to make healthy choices and develop a strategy that fits your lifestyle.

A physician’s written prescription, and in some cases a referral, may be required for one-on-one counseling.
