What is the difference between a Dietitian and a Nutritionist?

A nutritionist may be a  nutrition professional that has the expertise to provide a range of evidence-based nutrition services related to nutrition, public health nutrition, policy and research, and community health. It’s important to note that the term ‘nutritionist’ is not regulated. Therefore, this title may be used by dietitians, nutrition scientists and nutrition graduates.

 

Dietitians are also qualified to provide this range of evidence-based nutrition services. Additionally, dietitians have the expertise to provide individual dietary counselling, medical nutrition therapy, group dietary therapy, and food service management. A dietitian has undertaken a course of study that included substantial theory and supervised and assessed professional practice in clinical nutrition, medical nutrition therapy and food service management.

The international definition of dietetics set by the International Confederation of Dietetic Associations, 

“A dietitian is a person with a qualification in nutrition and dietetics recognized by national authority[s]. The dietitian applies the science of nutrition to the feeding and education of groups of people and individuals in health and disease." 

 

I am both a qualified nutritionist and registered dietitian who answers to the Commission of Dietetics Registration (CDR) and The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND), both of which are in the United States. 

Will my health insurance cover Dietitian services?
