FAQS

WHAT IS A REGISTERED DIETITIAN?

A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RD/RDN)is a nutrition professional who has completed a certain number of schooling requirements, finished a supervised internship, and sat for a credentialing exam. RD/RDN's are considered the leading experts in the field of nutrition and abide by both a code of ethics and standard of care. A nutritionist without the RD credential is not obligated to adhere to the same educational and professional standards.
