Registered Dietitians (RDs) provide nutrition advice to people, communities and governments. RDs base their recommendations on facts and deliver them to people without judgement, using language you can understand. Considering nutrition is a young science, the answers are not always clear and are often updated as we keep learning. RDs take their role very seriously and know how important it is to keep up with the latest information, to know all sides of the story. When you have all the pros and cons of a topic, you can make the most informed choice for you.
As with many other healthcare providers, RDs are regulated. This means we are registered as members of a College that monitors our ability to provide safe, ethical and professional care. To find out more about regulation of dietitians, read my post RDs are Regulated Health Professionals.
