National Registered Dietitian Day

Today is National Registered Dietitian Day!  But what, exactly, does a registered dietitian do?

 A registered dietitian, or RD, is a versatile professional who helps families, communities, and individuals make their diet the healthiest (and best tasting!) it can be.

These are just some of the ways registered dietitians have made a difference in the lives of others:

Many people have pre-diabetes. Registered dietitians change lives by teaching them skills to avoid the disease.

A registered dietitian can work with public health, government, school and other local leaders to create wellness programs that promote healthful eating and physical activity for everyone in a community.

Registered dietitians assist marketing managers with making the connection between taste and health and work with food scientists to develop new products that will be successful in the marketplace.

Athletes at any level can improve their performance with the help of an RD.

A registered dietitian can teach anyone basic cooking skills to help them prepare nutritious food in a convenient way.
