Dietitians are qualified and regulated health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutritional problems at an individual and wider public-health level.

They work with healthy people as well as people with health problems in a variety of settings from hospitals to people’s homes.


 They work with people across the whole age range from planning for a baby to older adults. They can also work in the food industry, workplace, catering, education, sport and the media.

Dietitians can provide healthy eating advice and recipes as well as advice on eating for recovery from illness – including COVID 19 and Cancer –  and help inform and educate about Diabetes and other long term conditions.
