About nutrition and dietetics

Nutrition and dietetics involves the study of food in relation to health and disease. ‘Nutrition’ examines the role of nutrients in the metabolic and physiological processes of the body, and ‘dietetics’ involves the prevention and treatment of a variety of nutrition-related diseases.

In Australia, dietitians are nutritionists who are also qualified to provide clinical care and counselling for people with food and nutrition problems.

Dietitians use scientific principles and methods in the study of food and nutrition and apply these to influencing food intake and eating behaviours. They interpret and translate scientific knowledge related to nutrition into practical information.

Dietitians contribute to promotion of health and prevention and treatment of illness by optimising the nutrition of individuals and communities.
