A nutritionist is a person who advises on matters of nutrition. In many jurisdictions, including the UK, parts of Canada, and most US states, the term is not legally protected; anyone may call themselves a "nutritionist", with no qualifications required. The term "dietitian" by contrast, can be used only by those who have met specified professional requirements.
A dietitian or dietician (dietitian is the correct spelling within the dietetics profession) is an expert in food and nutrition. Dietitians help promote good health through proper eating. They supervise the preparation and service of food, develop modified diets, participate in research, and educate individuals and groups on good nutritional habits. In a medical setting, a dietitian may provide specific artificial nutritional needs to patients unable to consume food normally. Dietary modification to address medical issues involving dietary intake is also a major part of dietetics. The goals of the dietary department are to provide medical nutritional intervention, obtain, prepare, and serve flavorsome, attractive, and nutritious food to patients, family members, and health care providers.
