Dietetics is a form of therapy designed to improve a person’s nutritional intake based on generating an individualised dietary plan that takes into account any conditions and dietary requirements a person may have. It may also include understanding and working on the relationship a person has with food.
This therapy can include providing education and general advice about a person’s diet and using strategies to help improve nutrition including behavioural change, motivational interviewing and mindfulness.
When receiving education and guidance make sure that the person is a suitably qualified dietitian rather than a nutritionist or nutritional therapist or diet expert because dietitians are by law the only professionals to offer this form of therapy for individuals with medical conditions or dietary requirements.
