Nutrition counseling continues to be a concern for pediatric providers. This study aimed to extend the understanding of the perceptions of pediatric providers regarding nutrition care. Individual semi-structured qualitative interviews were conducted using a purposive sampling technique. Interviews were conducted in-person or via telephone, recorded, and transcribed. Seven themes emerged from the data and these can be used as a “how to” for medical educators. Based on the experiences and perspectives of the pediatric providers in our study, we are moving forward with the systematic development of a curriculum to improve nutrition care and counseling in pediatrics.
