Overview

Dietitians are the only qualified health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutrition related problems at an individual and wider public health level. Dietitians 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.
