I have been awaiting confirmation for my accreditation to the Association for Nutrition (AFN) register and I am pleased to say I have been accepted and am now a fully Registered Associate Nutritionist!
The AFN governs the UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists (UKVRN) to distinguish nutrition practitioners who meet rigorously applied training, competence and professional practice criteria. Its purpose is to protect the public and assure the credibility of nutrition as a responsible profession.
Anyone can ‘call themselves a nutritionist’ so it is important you know you are getting correct, up to date, scientific based information. Knowing your nutritionist is accredited to the AFN you can relax in the knowledge they have studied nutrition to a degree level and have been trained by leading professionals.
