Who Is Qualified to Provide Nutrition Services?

While laws differ from state to state, nutrition counseling, medical nutrition therapy, and personalized nutrition care can generally only be provided by a licensed nutritionist or a registered dietician.  Nurses, physicians, fitness trainers, and health coaches are not qualified to provide personalized nutrition care unless they have additional clinical nutrition licensure and/or certifications.  Nutrition education or nutrition coaching has a broader, more general scope and may be provided by people with extensive health and nutrition science backgrounds.
