Registered Dietitian Day-March 9, 2011

Happy Registered Dietitian Day to all our fellow RD's & DTR's!

If you are looking for practical, affordable and accurate nutrition information, Registered Dietitians are the best source. Created in March 2008, Registered Dietitian Day commemorates the dedication of RDs, during National Nutrition Month® and all year long, as advocates for advancing the nutritional status of Americans and people around the world.

Registered Dietitians distinguish themselves as the food and nutrition experts by meeting academic and professional requirements, including earning at least a bachelor's degree, completing a supervised practice program, and passing a registration examination. This distinction is vital when determining where Americans get their nutrition information.

"The term 'nutritionist' is something that is being used quite a bit lately. The problem is that in many states there is no licensure law regarding the term 'nutritionist,' and therefore virtually anyone can call him — or herself — a nutritionist," Villacorta says. "To ensure you are getting trusted, science-based nutrition information, be sure you are looking for the RD credential next to the person's name."

"The expertise of registered dietitians goes so far beyond simply helping people lose weight," Villacorta says. "Whether you are training for a marathon, battling an eating disorder, managing diabetes, recovering from an illness or trying to prevent one or even simply needing help navigating the grocery store shelves, RDs are there to provide you with the personalized nutrition information you need to accomplish your goal."
