Human Nutrition and the Regulation of Diet

What

Dietitians are trained in, and seen as experts in, food and nutrition. They translate scientific nutrition information into practical advice, to help you make the right decision about what to eat. Dieticians will look at a child’s food intake and determine whether any changes could be made in order to support concentration and learning as well as to improve overall health.

Many people think dietitians only help those wanting to lose weight. But, while they do deal with weight loss, dietitians can help people of all ages, genders, nationalities and financial circumstances. You might want more energy, to prevent or recover from illness, to ensure you have a healthy baby, to lose weight, gain weight, or cope with an allergy or intolerance, or just grow old gracefully – dietitians can help anyone.
