Accredited Practicing Dietitians (APDs) are university-trained health professionals with the skills and qualifications to provide expert nutritional and dietary advice. APD is the only national credential recognised by the Australian Government, Medicare, Department of Veteran Affairs and most private health funds, as the quality standard for nutrition and dietetic services in Australia.
Dietitians translate scientific nutrition information into practical advice to help you make the right decisions about what to eat to attain or maintain optimal health. They keep up-to-date with the latest science and guidelines to provide best practice and ensure their knowledge is evidence-based.
