What is an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD)?

“Dietitians apply the art and science of human nutrition to help people understand the relationship between food and health and make dietary choices to attain and maintain health, and to prevent and treat illness and disease.”

We translate the complex scientific nutrition language into digestible chunks of practical dietary advice.

In Australia, all dietitians are nutritionists, however, nutritionists without a dietetics qualification cannot take on the specialised role of a dietitian.

APD is the only national credential recognised by the Australian Government, Medicare, the Department of Veterans Affairs and most private health funds as the quality standard for nutrition and dietetics services in Australia. Why? We undergo extensive education and rigorous training, and we are committed to undertaking continuing professional development to keep up to date with the latest advances in nutrition and health to provide you with the best possible care.

We assist, up skill and empower people to manage health conditions and diseases using food as Medical Nutrition Therapy.

APDs are all members of the Dietitian’s Association of Australia (DAA), the leading nutrition focused body in Australia. They are committed to the DAA code of professional conduct and code of ethics.
