Become a Licensed Nutritionist

A licensed nutritionist is considered an expert who links good nutrition to better health. In today’s world, obesity is on the rise and people are concerned about living a healthy lifestyle. A degree in nutrition will enable you to help individuals make the right food decisions and advise them on the effects of various kinds of food on their health. A nutritionist may also evaluate an individual’s needs and habits and educate about healthy eating habits.

Many nutritionists have completed a bachelor’s degree with an accredited nutrition curriculum, have completed an internship and have passed a licensing exam.
