What is a Dietitian?

A dietitian, is a healthcare professional specialising in diet and nutrition. Equipped with a rigorous scientific education, a dietetic professional possesses the expertise to translate the complexities of nutritional science into practical, actionable advice. Dietitians have the qualifications and skills to assess, diagnose, and treat nutritional problems at an individual and wider public health level.
