What is a Registered Nutritionist?
It is important to check qualifications when choosing a nutritionist. The Association for Nutrition (AfN) is the independent regulator for Registered Nutritionists. Their role is to protect and benefit the public.
A Registered Nutritionist will be found on the UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists. To be listed on the Register a person must be a competent, qualified nutrition professional who meets rigorous standards of competence and professionalism.
The UKVRN is the only Register of qualified nutritionists recognised by Public Health England, NHS Choices and NHS Careers.
