Family Nutritionist & Dietitian Careers
Areas Of Practice
A Family Nutritionist or Dietitian works much like a Community Nutritionist or Dietitian. However, they focus more of their energy on domestic issues. Family Nutritionists and Dietitians work primarily in public health clinics, home health agencies, health and human services agencies or with smaller private practices, counseling families and caregivers on the latest nutritional information and research to promote family wellbeing. Family Nutritionists and Dietitians may also work closely with pediatricians and family physicians in hospitals and community health practices.
What are the daily tasks for Family Nutritionists?
Family Nutritionist and Dietitian tasks may include practice pertaining to maternity and childbirth, raising children, food preparation for families, caring for elders, and general promotion of healthy nutritional habits. Family practitioners deal with issues ranging from meal preparation for picky eaters to nutritional advice for the treatment of diabetic, overweight or otherwise at-risk children.
As our population ages, diet and meal planning for the elderly has also become an important issue. Moreover, with the latest economic hardships felt across the country, everything from low-income grocery budgets to suggestions for economical, healthy snacks has become more and more important. Family Nutritionists and Dietitians have lately found their profession at the heart of solving these issues.
