Do you have any questions or concerns about nutrition and health? Do you need help sorting through the nutrition information out there? Do you want support to make lifestyle changes? Ask a registered dietitian!

Registered dietitians at Ottawa Public Health are responsible for coordinating and facilitating partnerships between public health and other sectors of the community. They provide information and resources on food and nutrition to the public as well as assess and develop healthy eating guidelines and policies for organizations. The Ottawa Public Health dietitians do not provide one-on-one consultations with residents.

Registered Dietitian or Nutritionist?

A registered dietitian is not the same as a nutritionist. Dietitians are nutrition specialists who hold a Bachelor's degree in foods and nutrition from an accredited university and have completed supervised practical training. The titles “RD” in English or “Dt.P” in French are protected and regulated by the College of Dietitians of Ontario to protect the public and assure the highest professional standards. In Ontario, “nutritionist” is not a protected title. However, in public health in Ontario, the Public Health Nutritionist is a registered dietitian who also holds a Master's degree in nutrition or related area from an accredited university. Choose a registered dietitian as your expert in foods and nutrition.

Registered Dietitians in Private Practice

Dietitians in private practice work with clients to develop nutrition and lifestyle solutions for various health concerns. Referral by a physician is not necessary; however, a fee will be charged for all services. Many insurance plans cover the cost of registered dietitian services. Contact your insurance provider to see if you are covered.
