Registered Dietitians: The Nutrition Experts
When you want food and nutrition information based on fact, rely on qualified professionals in the field. Registered Dietitians (RD) are food and nutrition experts, translating the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living. The expertise, training and credentials that back a Registered Dietitian are vital for promoting good nutrition.
Just as all CPAs are accountants, all Registered Dietitians are nutritionists but not all nutritionists are Registered Dietitians. The term nutritionist has been assumed by all sorts of nutritional experts. Since the title nutritionist is not regulated, these individuals can have widely varying levels of education. Registered Dietitians know the science of nutrition. They have degrees in nutrition, dietetics, public health, or a related field from well-respected, accredited colleges and universities. After or during their education, RDs must perform a supervised internship.
To become “registered” they must pass an extensive examination administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration and earn professional education credits throughout their careers to maintain registration.
Registered Dietitians draw on their experience to develop a personalized nutrition plan for individuals of all ages. They are able to separate facts from fads and can translate nutritional science into information you can use. RDs have the combination of education and science-based nutrition expertise you can trust.
At Family Food, we rely on Registered Dietitians, the nutrition experts to provide you with the best nutrition counseling.
