What is a dietitian?

And why are dietitians the experts in nutrition?

  • Accredited Practising Dietitians (APDs) are the experts in nutrition and dietetics and have the qualifications and skills to provide advice to both groups and individuals. We have sound university qualifications, undertake ongoing training and education and comply with Dietitians Association of Australia’s guidelines for best practice.
  • We are trained in medical nutrition therapy which means we are qualified to treat a range of medical conditions with nutrition including diabetes, heart disease, cancers, gastrointestinal diseases, food allergies, food intolerances as well as overweight and obesity, malnutrition and more nutrition related conditions.
  • We convert scientific evidence to practical advice on everyday nutrition and healthy eating including subtle dietary changes, interpreting food labels, healthy recipe ideas and modifications, better options when eating out and ensuring your diet includes all the vital nutrients. We take your lifestyle and preferences into account when providing this information to ensure that it is individualised for your situation for optimal results.
  • We are also trained in health coaching which aims to help you set and achieve your own goals, with our support and guidance. This ensures long term changes rather than just a quick fix.
  • APD is the only national credential recognised by the Australian Government, Medicare, the Department of Veterans Affairs and most private health funds as the quality standard for nutrition and dietetics services in Australia. It is a recognised trademark protected by law.
