Nutrition and dietetics campaigns

This page gives you information about the latest nutrition and dietetics campaigns being run in Newcastle.

Dietitians Week

Dietitians Week runs every year in June. It's led by the British Dietetic Association (BDA) and promotes the profession nationally and globally.

Registered Dietitians are the only health professionals who assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutritional problems in individuals, and at a wider public health level. They work with both healthy and sick people.

Dietitians use the most up-to-date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease to produce practical guidance to help people make lifestyle and food choices. Dietitians are the only nutrition professionals to be regulated by law and an ethical code to ensure that they always work to the highest standards.

Trust a Dietitian

The 'Trust a Dietitian' campaign highlights the importance of choosing a Dietitian, and the big differences between Dietitians, nutritionists, nutritional therapists, and so-called diet ‘experts’.
