Latest News and Event



On August 29th, Main Street Pediatrics is switching to a new electronic medical records system that we believe will very much improve your child’s experience at our office. While we adjust to this new system, things like checking in and out at the office and visiting with your child’s provider may take longer, and some of our office procedures may be a little different the next time you visit. We apologize for the inconvenience.

One great advantage of our new system is MyChart, which enables you to view your child’s medical record, including notes from medical visits and lab tests, get past immunization history, view and pay your bill, and even to download camp and sports forms. Info for signing up to MyChart will be sent out at a later date.

We will begin our transition to the new system starting on Monday August 14th at which time you might find that making appointments will take a little bit longer for the first few weeks.

Nutrition

Nutritional Shakes
As a Registered Dietitian I am hearing from many of patients  that they are interested in knowing which of the nutritional supplemental shakes are the best and which are safe for children. Here is a list of some of the most common that I am asked about as of lately.  My personal opinion is when able to offer your child real food, that would be preferable over a bottled shake.  There are many circumstances where flexible alternatives need to be available and as a mom of three children I do understand that as well.  In picking a shake if the goal is to replace milk then it should resemble milk in regards to nutrition facts as much as possible. If the goal is to provide a well balanced snack then  the shake should provide  protein and fiber  or maybe just protein with a fruit on the side for added fiber.  If you need to find a portable supplement to provide after practice  that would provide your child with protein and carbohydrate then sometimes a shake can be a good idea.

Bottom line is  the fewer  ingredients the better, no mega doses of added vitamins,  and not a significant amount of added sugar (remember on a label when you see total  grams of sugar it is including what is naturally found in the milk).
