Nutritionists advise individuals and the community about food choices for a healthy diet. Nutritionists have an extensive knowledge of the nutritive value of foods, the nutrients required by the body at all stages of development, and the role of nutrients and diet in health and the prevention of disease.
Nutritionists can be involved in the research and development of food products and they may also do research into the role of nutrients and dietary patterns in health and disease.
