What is a RDN vs Nutritionist?

Registered dietitian nutritionists, or RDNs, are the food and nutrition experts, translating the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living. The expertise, training and credentials that back a registered dietitian nutritionist are vital for promoting positive lifestyle choices.

Individuals with the RDN credential have fulfilled specific requirements, including having earned at least a bachelor’s degree (about half of RDns hold advanced degrees), completed a supervised practice program and passed a registration examination — in addition to maintaining continuing education requirements for re-certification.

Registered dietitians draw on their experience to develop a personalized nutrition plan for individuals of all ages. They are able to separate facts from fads and translate nutritional science into information you can use.

A registered dietitian can put you on the path to a healthy weight, eating healthfully and reducing your risk of chronic disease.
