In simple terms, a nutritionist is a person who advises on matters of food and nutrition impacts on health. Based on the person’s qualification, he/she may work as nutrition scientist, public health nutritionist, dietician nutritionist, clinical nutritionist or sports nutritionist.
Common tasks of nutritionist or dietician include-
- Scientific study of nutrition and food science
- Provide guidance on eating habits and nutrition to people
- Plant diets according to the needs of patient/client
- Conduct or take part in research activity (depending upon qualification)
Though nutritionists and dieticians share many common tasks, an RD (Registered Dietician) is more like an allied healthcare professional.
Nutritionists or dieticians may build a career in the following sectors- R&D (Research and Development), Healthcare sector (hospitals, clinics, health centres etc), Government schemes and organizations, NGOs, Teaching and Education sector.
Other than the above mentioned jobs, self employment is another good opportunity available in front of nutritionists and dieticians. If one has access to decent financial resources and entrepreneurship skills, starting own private clinic or consultancy will be a good idea!
