Definition of a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist

A registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) is an expert in food and nutrition who promotes good nutrition through healthy eating. Some RDNs call themselves nutritionists, however, the term "nutritionist" by itself is not regulated. People may call themselves nutritionists without the educational and professional requirements of registered dietitian nutritionists. Dietitians are registered with the Commission on Dietetic Registration (the certifying agency of the American Dietetic Association) and are only able to use the label "registered dietitian nutritionist" when they have met strict, specific criteria. Use the following link to verify a dietitian's status (my RD#: 882691): RDN credential verification.

Here is a link to an explanation of a Licensed Dietitian (LD) in Ohio (my LD#: 6197).
