Toddler Pediatric Care

Ensure Healthy Development

Human development is never more active than in the first few years of life. During these initial years, your child develops faster than at any other period in his or her life . The way you care for your child during these toddler years greatly effects how they grow:

  • Physically
  • Emotionally
  • Socially
  • Cognitively

As a Mission Viejo pediatrics physician, Dr. Akey is an expert in the development of your child during their toddler years. Other than caring for your child’s medical needs, we can give you pointers on how to care for your child in ways that encourage development.

One of the most important factors during these years is your child’s diet. The foods you feed your child during the toddler years can affect physical and cognitive development, as well as your child’s eating habits for his or her entire life.

We know the importance of diet and nutrition and make it a point to discuss your child’s nutritional health during every visit.

To learn which foods can encourage your toddler’s development, contact our office at (949) 218-5437. We are here to help you!
