National Nutrition Month

Tomorrow is March and that means it’s National Nutrition Month! This years theme is “Savor the Flavor of Eating Right.” The theme encourages everyone to enjoy food traditions and appreciate the pleasure and social experiences food adds to our lives. Having a mindful eating pattern mixed with nutritious food and small indulgences is the best way to savor the flavor of eating right.

Dietitian vs. Nutritionist

What is the difference between a Registered Dietitian/Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and a nutritionist? Find a qualified dietitian in your area here. Or check out what I can offer you virtually here!

A dietitian is someone who earned a four year degree with course work approved by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, completed an accredited and supervised practice program, and passed a national exam administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration. Dietitians also complete continuing education requirements to maintain their registration.

A nutritionist is a non-accredited title that can be given to someone who completed has nutrition coursework. Although, there are some individuals who have given themselves the title of nutritionist without having any previous training in nutrition.

P.S. March 9th is Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day! Feel free to send your favorite nutrition blogger a gift. 😉
