If you are looking for nutrition advice these days, it can be very confusing. There are many "nutrition experts" in the community, writing books/blogs, on TV, in the media and on the internet. How do you know if you are getting your information from a credible, reliable source? Let me explain why a Registered Dietitian is your best choice.
In Ontario, Registered Dietitian is a protected title. This means only individuals who meet the following strict criteria can call themselves a Registered Dietitian or use the initials RD:
has completed a 4-year university or equivalent degree with appropriate courses in sciences and human nutrition, administration and humanities;
has finished an accredited dietetic internship or equivalent supervised practical training;
has successfully completed the Canadian Dietetic Registration Examination;
is a member of the College of Dietitians of Ontario
