March 13, 2013 is Registered Dietitian Day! RD Day happens in the middle of National Nutrition Month to celebrate the work and commitment of dietitians who are striving to make our communities healthier each and every day. Registered dietitians are your go-to experts for all things food and nutrition. While a Bachelor degree and specific academic achievements must be met, according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics 50% of RDs hold advance degrees. Some also hold specializations in areas such as sports nutrition, pediatrics, renal disease, and weight management. Registered dietitians can help you meet your weight goals, improve your sports performance, and prevent or manage chronic disease.
