Important note when choosing your Nutritionist
In Australia, anyone is allowed to call themselves a nutritionist or a dietitian and give nutrition advice. In fact, there are no laws in place to stop anyone who has not undergone any nutrition or health training from calling themselves a ‘nutritionist’ or ‘dietitian’ and giving you advice that is not accurate, reliable or scientifically proven.
Your only safeguard is to look for the letters APD (Accredited Practising Dietitian) and AN (Accredited Nutritionist) next to a nutritionist’s or dietitian’s name and check that they are recognised by the Dietitians Association of Australia (DAA). Only fully qualified nutritionists and dietitians have the APD and AN credentials and membership of the DAA. These credentials mean that the nutritionist has a minimum of 4 years of university training as well as hospital internships so you can trust them to provide you with medical nutrition therapy and reliable nutrition advice that is based on proven scientific principles.
