Dietitian = Nutrition Experts
Just about anyone can claim to be a “nutritionist,” but the most reliable source of nutrition advice comes from a qualified dietitian. A Dietitian is a health professional who has a Bachelor’s degree specialising in foods and nutrition, as well as a period of practical training in a hospital and a community setting.
You can be sure that a qualified dietitian:
•Has completed the minimum four-year college degree approved by the Irish Nutrition and Dietetic Institute
•Has completed on-the-job training
•Stays current with continuing education and training
