What is a Registered Dietitian?

Registered Dietitians (RDs) are food and nutrition experts who put the theory of nutrition science into practice for healthy living. RDs use their nutrition expertise to help individuals make unique, positive lifestyle changes. All Registered Dietitians must:

  • Earn a bachelor’s degree with courses accredited by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND).

  • Complete extensive supervised practice experiences at one or more health-care facilities, community agencies and/or foodservice corporations.

  • Successfully complete a national Registered Dietitian (RD) examination administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR).

  • Complete continuing professional educational requirements to maintain registration.

What is an IBCLC?

Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs) are specially trained and qualified to assist with every aspect of breastfeeding. IBCLCs train for 2-5+ years, and must complete 90 hours of lactation-specific education and 300-1,000 hands-on clinical hours. To maintain their accreditation, IBCLCs must earn their recertification every five years. The International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) represents the "gold standard" in lactation consultant credentialing. Look for this credential when seeking the assistance of a lactation consultant in order to ensure the highest level of training, experience, and expertise.
