Why choose a Registered Dietitian?

Per the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Registered Dietitians (RDs) are the food and nutrition experts that have earned their title by meeting required criteria.The road to becoming an RD includes: earning a bachelor of science degree after extensive coursework in anatomy and physiology, psychology, sociology, life cycle nutrition, public health, microbiology, biochemistry, food science, metabolism, and counseling strategies. It then involves completion of an accredited dietetic internship, and passing a national registration exam. During their career RDs are required to remain informed of evidenced-based practices by completing continuing education credits. RDs are the qualified food and nutrition experts that have been adequately prepared to provide their patients, clients, and communities with the tools they need to live healthy lifestyles.
