Dietitians are qualified health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutrition problems at an individual and wider 

public health level.  Dietitians use the most up to date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease, which they translate into practical guidance to enable people to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices.   

Paediatric Dietitians focus on the nutritional needs of infants and children from birth until 18 years of age. 

The title dietitian can only be used by appropriately trained professionals who meet the standards set by the Health Professions Council for training, professional skills, behaviour and health.   You can check if your health professional is registered on their website at
