Dietitian, nutritionist – what’s the difference?

Dietitians are the only qualified health professionals that can assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutrition problems at an individual and wider public health level. Dietitians use the most up-to-date scientific research on food, health and disease, to make practical recommendations on appropriate lifestyle and food choices.

Dietitians are the only nutrition professionals to be statutorily regulated, and governed by an ethical code, to ensure they always work to the highest standard. Dietitians must be registered with the Health Professions Council (HPC) in order to practice. The minimum requirement to qualify as a dietitian is a university degree in dietetics (4 years).

The title ‘Nutritionist’ is not protected by law and anyone can call themselves a nutritionist.
