Smart eating is a means to good nutrition, a key step towards better health for everyone.
But because we’re all unique, with differing health challenges, goals and lifestyles (for example), smart eating will mean different things to different people, and how we go about achieving it will be different too. That’s where personalised nutrition advice and support from an Accredited Practising Dietitian comes in.
How can an Accredited Practising Dietitian help?
Accredited Practising Dietitians have a lot to offer in supporting you to live a healthier life, through smart eating.
They’re nutrition scientists with at least four years’ study behind them in nutrition, food science and biochemistry. And they have the know-how to translate the science into personalised, practical advice, respecting your values and preferences, to find the best approach for you.
Importantly, they can support and motivate you to make smart eating a part of your life over the long term.
