Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Registered Dietitan?


A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RD/RDN) is a healthcare professional that specializes in food and and nutrition. Anyone can label themselves a nutritionist, but only a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RD/RDN) has met the academic and professional requirements set forth by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND). The RD/RDN credential is the only license accepted professionally to practice Medical Nutrition Therapy.​
