In March 2013, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics approved the optional use of the credential Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) by all registered dietitians. The Academy states that every registered dietitian is a nutritionist, but not every nutritionist is a registered dietitian. When seeking the food and nutrition experts look for the credentials RD or RDN. For more information you can link to RDN credentials, FAQ.
