Unlock the Potential of Food – Find a Dietitian
Nutrition Month 2023, Unlock the Potential of Food – Find a Dietitian, will explore how a dietitian can help with food and nutrition as well as how and where to find a dietitian.
A registered dietitian is a regulated health professional who is passionate about food and the science behind it. They help people understand the connection between food and health and work with you to embrace food, to understand it and to enjoy it.
Dietitians use the most up-to-date science and translate it into practical guidance that you can use to make healthy lifestyle and food choices.
Where does a Dietitian work?
Dietitians work in a variety of settings. Some dietitians work as part of a team of other health care professionals like doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and speech pathologists. Dietitians may also work alone in a clinic or private practice to provide nutrition counselling.
