Want to know more about RDs?
Registered Dietitians are experts in food and nutrition. In order to become a Registered Dietitian (RD), a practitioner must earn a bachelor's degree from an institution accredited by the American Dietetic Association's Commission on Accreditation for Dietetics Education, completing a supervised and accredited practice program at a healthcare facility, passing a national examination, and completing continuing-education requirements to maintain that registration. And those are just the basic requirements! Further, over 50 percent of RDs also have a master's degree or Ph.D., and many of them also complete specialized education on topics like diabetes or pediatric nutrition.
