An Association for Nutrition (AfN) accredited undergraduate or postgraduate degree is the optimal nutrition-based qualification, guaranteeing an AfN nutritionist has undertaken evidence-based training. The evidence-based distinction between nutritionists and nutritional therapists is important; evidence-based means scientifically proven, i.e. what tells you whether something works or not and whether it could do any harm. This ensures that you are getting advice that is both safe and accurate.


The UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists is held by the AfN and is the only register of qualified nutritionists recognised by Public Health England and the NHS.
