THE ROLES OF A NUTRITIONIST

  • Explaining nutrition and how it affects the client
  • Assessing clients’ health and nutritional needs
  • Establishing short-term and long-term diet goals
  • Developing personalized nutrition and meal plans
  • Evaluating the effects of meal plans and making adjustments
  • Staying up to date on the latest nutritional science

Nutritionist Tips With Sara

Nutritionist FAQs

Legally, anyone can give advice and call themselves a nutritionist in Ontario. Registered dieticians, however, must earn an accredited 4-year degree that includes science and nutrition courses, do an internship, pass an exam, and are held accountable to the College of Dieticians of Ontario on an ongoing basis. Just like all regulated health professionals, dietitians are committed and required to stay on top of emerging research, skills, and techniques, and adhere to principles of professional practice.

“Dietitian” is a protected title across Canada, just like physician, nurse and pharmacist. Some dietitians have a job title that includes nutritionist, such as “community nutritionist”. To be sure you’re accessing the most qualified nutrition professional, look for the initials RD or PDt (DtP in French) after the health professional’s name.

What’s the Difference Between a Dietitian & Nutritionist?

Registered dietitians and nutritionists may seem similar at first glance, but they have some pretty major distinctions. Our registered dietitians turn the science of nutrition into practical, healthy meal plans. They deliver reliable, evidence-based advice and are not influenced by the latest fads or dieting gimmicks.
