March 18th will mark the 6th anniversary of Dietitians Day.
For almost 100 years, Canadians have looked to registered dietitians to help them make healthy food choices. Registered dietitians are food and nutrition experts who hold a 4-year university degree in food and nutrition. They have also completed a period of supervised practical training or Master’s Degree program which includes practical training before they can practice.
Dietitians work in a variety of settings, from industry and institutions to community health and private practice, providing quality nutrition services, and helping people meet their individual nutrition needs.
