Do you know what a Registered Dietitian actually does?

    I applaud your description of the profession encompassing Food and Nutrition. However, it is hurtful to me that you describe a nutritionist with the words, “A Nutritionist also works in food and nutrition but he/she doesn’t need to meet any legal standards. ” There are clear legal standards for being called a CERTIFIED Nutritionist in many states, but your sentence easily leads one to believe that anyone not holding the title of RD or RDN is not practicing legally and/or is not qualified. Please see the high standards of the BCNS organization for more details. Thank you so much!
