About Registered Dietitians

There are many different messages we get about diet and nutrition from social media, celebrities and newspapers. This can make it hard finding the right diet and nutrition advice that you can rely on.


Registered Dietitians (RDs) are qualified health care professionals.


They are the only nutrition professionals that assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutritional problems at an individual and public health level. They see both healthy and sick people.


Dietitians are the only nutrition professionals regulated by law – meaning they are governed by an ethical code to ensure they always work to the highest standard.
