What does an Accredited Practicing Dietitian & Nutritionist do?

A dietitian is a qualified health professional trained to provide nutrition and dietary advice. They use their knowledge to help assist people in reaching optimal health and performance through food and nutrition.

Dietitians in Australia undertake a four-year Bachelor Degree, which includes supervised and assessed professional practice in clinical nutrition, medical nutrition therapy and food service management.

A dietitian can discuss the confusion surrounding food and fad diets found in the media. They can help you to understand how your body works and how nutrition helps to nourish athletes of all levels, healthy individuals, and those with medical conditions.
