Florida Nutritionist

The demand for nutritionists is on the rise, in part because of increased focus on eating better to be healthier. A career as a nutritionist can be quite a rewarding and lucrative career. In the State of Florida, specific educational and licensing requirements must be met for all practicing nutritionists.

The work of a nutritionist

Nutritionists work in a variety of occupational settings, including hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, and physician's offices. Nutritionists promote healthy eating and diet modification. They design food and nutrition programs and assist with meal preparation. As more people have become dedicated to healthier eating and the impact of a healthier diet on overall health has become known, the need for properly licensed nutritionists continues to rise. If you would like to plan menus, help people eat healthier and improve their overall health, gaining hands-on experience, this may be the ideal career for you.
