Careers in Nutrition

Careers in nutritional health and dietary aid entail knowledge of nutrition and planning skills (as in the case of diet meal preparation).

Most states demand that a dietician or nutritionist receive education and a consequent nutritionist certificate or license. There are also associate, bachelor's and master's degrees pertaining to nutrition.

Dieticians and nutritionists provide helpful and educational nutritional information and services for persons in institutions, schools, correctional facilities, health clinics and private venues.

Obese persons, diabetics and lower income persons greatly benefit from daily nutritional tutorials. Many dieticians have their own practice and work with doctors and community services.
