Career as a Dietitian Assistant
Dietitian assistants work with senior dietitians to help people regarding their food choices. Assistants make important decisions about the diets that are necessary to follow by advising people what is best for them. They inform the public of the necessity of nutrition in their meals and influence their choices. Dietitian assistants are extremely valuable to dietitians and patients alike. They help patients choose food, monitor the food being consumed them, help patients understand how tubes and pumps work, weigh the patients and explain the diet and nutrition plan that is selected for them. They work with both healthy patients and people who are sick to help prevent digestive problems, eating disorders, weight loss, and allergies. They usually work in hospitals, clinics and may even visit their patients in their homes to advise them.
