Dietitians are health professionals who can help translate scientific information about nutrition into practical advice for people who need their services.


While both nutritionists and dietitians provide nutrition guidance, a dietitian is someone who has reached a certain level of competency through university study. This includes theory and assessment covering clinical nutrition, medical nutrition therapy and food service management.

In Australia all dietitians are considered to be nutritionists however, nutritionists without a dietetics qualification cannot take on the specialised role of a dietitian. Dietitians can assess how adequate your nutritional intake is for your individual needs.

This insight can be helpful for anyone, whether you’re healthy, have a specific illness, or are somewhere in between. Examples include nutrition for weight management, pregnancy, and for general health and wellbeing. Dietitians assist with managing many illnesses but may be of particular help with conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, gastro-intestinal disease and food allergies
