What’s the difference between a Registered Dietitian and a nutritionist?
The title “Registered Dietitian” is protected by law, meaning that only those who have met specific criteria, including education, internship, exams, and continuing education are able to practice as a dietitian. “Nutritionist” is not a protected title in the province of Ontario, meaning that anyone can call themselves a nutritionist, without being liable for the advice they provide.
