Inside Nutrition Services

Dietitians and nutritionists provide nutritional services by creating custom meal programs for clients, educating patients on proper meal preparation and overseeing meals for optimum health and nutrition. A dietitian can specialize in community, clinical or management nutritional services. Those working in a clinical setting specialize in providing nutritional services to patients in nursing homes, hospitals and similar institutions.

Community dietitians work in preventative care through home healthcare agencies and public health clinics. They educate their communities on nutrition and advise on meal plans for families. Management dietitians work in schools, prisons and cafeterias. They also train other dietitians and food service workers and enforce sanitary regulations in these facilities. Consultant dietitians are more likely to have their own private practices, and work one-on-one with clients for optimal health.
