Dieticians and Nutritionists
Written by Catherine Davis   

Food PyramidDietitians and nutritionists promote good health through informed eating habits and improved nutrition.

The importance of a healthy, varied diet is emphasised in order to reach and maintain an optimal body weight, enhance general well being and help treat and prevent food related problems.

This diet will achieve the right balance between carbohydrate, fat and protein and provide a sufficient intake of vitamins, minerals and fibre.

Individual needs vary according to age, sex, level of physical activity and current state of health. Dietitians and nutritionists can give practical advice about the amount and type of foods required and when and if supplements are necessary.

You can contact appropriately qualified dietitians or nutritionists through your doctor, physician or local hospital. In the UK you can also consult the British Dietetic Association (BDA), for details of qualified dietitians working in private practice in your area.
