What is a Registered Dietitian (RD)?

A registered dietitian is an expert in the area of food and nutrition. In order to become an RD, a Bachelor of Science degree must be obtained in the area of dietetics, nutrition, food science or the like, and s/he must complete an extensive supervised program of practice and pass a registration exam. In the state of Florida, an RD must obtain and keep current a license to practice nutrition from the Florida Department of Health.

· To receive personalized nutrition advice and guidance

· To have a trained nutrition expert help me reach my wellness goals
