Working With A Family Nutritionist

Get the right expertise

To ensure you are working with the best pediatric nutritionist for your child, you should inquire about a nutritionist’s education, credentials, and working style. Here are a few questions you should ask your pediatric nutritionist to ensure you get the right expertise.
An image of Top Nutrition Coaching nutritionistsGet Started
All of our nutritionist engagements include the following:
Ask about education
An image of an arrow icon
You want to ensure that the pediatric nutritionist you are working with has at least a bachelor’s degree in dietetics, nutrition, public health, or related health science. Ask your potential nutritionist questions about where they went to school and what degree they currently hold. If the pediatric nutritionist does not have a bachelor’s degree in a nutrition-related field, ask about additional education or other work experience that they may have.
What is their professional title?
An image of an arrow icon
While a nutritionist’s title is not the be-all-end-all, it can reveal a lot about their level of experience and expertise. Specific titles that indicate you are working with an expert in their field include Certified Clinical Nutritionist, Certified Nutrition Specialist, Registered Dietician, and Registered Nutritionist Dietician.
Inquire about their working style
An image of an arrow icon
Anyone can call themselves a pediatric nutritionist, therefore, there are a few key signs you should look out for to ensure you are working with an expert. One of the best ways to deduce whether or not an individual is qualified is to pay attention to their title and credentials. A registered dietitian-nutritionist (RDN) is a specific professional credential that can only be received by individuals who have at least a bachelor’s degree. This individual will have also completed a course approved by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics, supervised practice programs, and a national exam for the Commission on Dietetic Registration.

What is a family nutritionist?

A family nutritionist works with you and your loved ones to recommend not only better meals and how to prepare them but also ways in which you can change your relationship with the food you eat for the better.

Often, you and your family nutritionist will set out goals and intentions to achieve with your altered diet plans, and they will provide support throughout the journey. The aim is to enjoy healthier and more delicious meals that enrich your daily activities.

Work With A Family Nutritionist

What does a family nutritionist do?

A family nutritionist gets to know you and your loved ones to discover ways in which you can better benefit from the meals you prepare and the snacks you eat. They will also explore your relationship with food, how it relates to your health and well-being, and make recommendations to improve – and encourage you to stick to the new way of doing things.

Benefits of working with a family nutritionist

​​Better meals

An image of an arrow icon
A good meal will taste good, but a great meal will do that and be good for you! Your family nutritionist will help you understand how to prepare easy yet satisfying meals that leave you full and energized throughout the day.

Better health

An image of an arrow icon
The old saying is right – we are what we eat. Fuel your body with trash, and you’ll surely feel like it. Ready to leave behind those lethargic days, odd headaches, and other nasty side effects? Instead, enjoy the feeling of clarity and energy that comes from nutritionally enriched food.

Better understanding

An image of an arrow icon
Your family nutritionist can help you learn enough about the food and drink you choose for your loved ones to help you make better decisions on your own. The goal is that you’ll be able to take this knowledge with you long after we finish working together.

What to look for in a family nutritionist

To find the best family nutritionist, they must be attuned to your needs. Here are some guidelines you should follow when selecting your family nutritionist.

Consider your nutrition goals

An image of an arrow icon
Before deciding on which nutritionist you want your family to work with, ask yourself what you want to get out of this experience. While some family nutritionists may specialize in sports nutrition, others may be better at working with picky eaters. Thinking through your nutrition goals and why you seek help will help you get the most out of each session.

Know your budget

An image of an arrow icon
Determining how much you can afford to spend on a family nutritionist will be important when selecting your service. Consider how much you can afford to pay for a family nutritionist every month and how often you plan on visiting the nutritionist.

Figure out your nutrition philosophy

An image of an arrow icon
Every family nutritionist will have their own working style and methodology. Ask for an introductory call with a nutritionist before signing on for their services. On the call, ask what their nutrition philosophy is and what a typical session with them might look like to gauge whether their style meets your needs. Some nutritionists may be more rigorous or intense with stricter regimens, while others may be more laid back and take a holistic approach.
