The RDN Difference

Why Choose A Registered Dietitian?

In today’s society, trying to find credible nutrition advice can be quite the challenge!  Anyone can call themselves a “nutritionist” and claim to be able to provide nutrition counseling services.  However, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN), also called a Registered Dietitian (RD), is the only professional that has completed multiple layers of education and training established by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND), an extensive supervised program of practice similar to that of a doctor residency, and successfully pass a rigorous registration exam.  Registered Dietitian Nutritionists are the nutrition experts qualified to help consumers navigate through all the nutrition misinformation out there, while providing sound, reliable, and science-based nutrition advice.
