What is a dietitian?

Dietitians are experts in the complex science of food and nutrition. They are the only qualified and legally regulated nutrition professionals. Their role is to assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutritional problems using scientific evidence.

They use the most up-to-date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease which they translate into practical guidance to enable people to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices. 

They work in a broad spectrum of positions; the NHS, the media, private practice, industry, education, sport and public relations and are governed by the Health and Care Professions Council’s ethical code which ensures that they always work to the highest standard and in the best interest of their clients.
