What is a Dietitian?

What truly is the difference between a Dietitian and a Nutritionist?

A Dietitian can be called a Nutritionist but a Nutritionist can’t be called a Dietitian.

Dietitians are the only nutrition professionals to be regulated by law, and are governed by an ethical code to ensure that they always work to the highest standard.

They are the only qualified health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutritional problems at an individual and wider public health level.

They 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.
