What’s the difference between a “dietitian” and a “nutritionist”?

Registered Dietitians are regulated health professionals who have a Bachelor’s degree in nutrition. They have also either completed a post-degree internship or a masters practicum program. The term “dietitian” is protected by law to ensure that national education, practice and ethical standards are achieved and maintained. However, the term “nutritionist” is not protected by law which means that anyone can call himself or herself a nutritionist. You can identify a dietitian by the initials “RD” (Registered Dietitian).
