About National Dietitians Day

  • Once a year, a special day is dedicated to all dietitians across Canada. It celebrates dietitians as health care professionals, committed to using their specialized knowledge and skills in food and nutrition to improve the health of Canadians.
  • March 19, 2014 marked the fifth anniversary of Dietitians Day. It spotlights the profession and reminds us that dietitians are the smart choice for advice on proper eating, good nutrition and healthy living.
  • Dietitians Day also raises the profile of dietitians and helps encourage and attract others to this worthy, satisfying and respected profession.
