What is an Accredited Practising Dietitian?

Accredited Practising Dietitians (APDs) are recognised professionals with the qualifications and skills to provide expert nutrition and dietary advice. APDs have sound university qualifications, undertake ongoing training and comply with the Dietitians Association of Australia’s (DAA) guidelines for best practice. APD is the only national credential recognised by the Australian Government as the quality standard for nutrition and dietetics services in Australia.

At Darwin Dietitians we are all APDs.

When it comes to preventing or managing obesity we now know it’s not always as simple as ‘energy in, energy out’, there is a need to understand the functional role food has on the body as well as the potential damaging effects
