Dietitians believe in the power of food to enhance lives and improve health, and our curiosity to understand the science behind it drives us; it is our passion and our calling.
Dietitians translate the science of nutrition into terms everyone can understand to unlock food’s potential and support healthy living for all Canadians. Dietitians tailor the advice and information they provide to their patients, clients, and communities, considering their overall objectives and personal needs and challenges.
