Registered dietitians are health care professionals who are extensively trained to provide advice and counselling about diet, food and nutrition. They use the best available evidence coupled with experienced judgment regarding the client’s or communities’ unique values and circumstances to determine guidance and recommendations.
Dietitians help people make healthy food choices, separating fact from ‘fad’ and distinguishing healthy eating plans from those that don’t provide optimal nourishment and/or may not be a sustainable plan of care. Dietitians play a major role in health care, industry, government and education. They influence policy development, direct nutrition programs, manage quality food services and conduct nutrition research.
In order to become a Registered Dietitian in Canada, a four-year honours undergraduate degree with an accredited nutritional program would have had to be obtained, along with successful completion of a clinical or community Graduate Internship Program.
