What is a Dietitian?
Dietitians are tertiary qualified in food, nutrition and dietetics. Their qualifications have included study in supervised and assessed professional practice in public health nutrition, medical nutrition therapy and food service management. They provide expert nutrition advice for people of all ages and prescribe dietary treatments for many conditions such as diabetes, gastro-intestinal disorders, food allergies and overweight and obesity.
We all want to be healthy, and good nutrition is key to feeling our best.
Every day we are exposed to quick-fix fad diets and uncredited nutritional claims that are unsustainable and can be dangerous to our health.
