Accredited practicing dietitians (APD’s) are university trained health professionals with the skills to provide expert nutrition and dietary advice for all people.  To be named as an ‘APD’ dietitians must undergo comprehensive university training before being registered with the Dietitians Association of Australia, the peak nutrition body in Australia. Dietitians also have to undertake ongoing training and education programs to ensure that they are your most up-to-date and credible source of nutrition information.

Quality Advice

Many people that provide nutritional advice are not university trained and have little or no training or expertise in this area.
