Career Profile
 

Every day, we make choices that involve nutrition. What should I have for breakfast? Is a scoop of ice cream bad for me? How can I alter my daily routine to shed pounds? Will vitamin C help a cold? Which part of a food label is important? Should I buy canned or fresh peas? Knowledge of nutrition is not only valuable to you, your family and friends; it’s widely appreciated in places such as:

 
Organic food and supplement stores
Weight loss clinics and centers
Menu planning for offices, schools, hospitals and other institutions
Health and fitness clubs
While a degree or certification may be necessary for nutritionists and dieticians, there are many careers where specialized nutrition training is valued. You might work in food supplement sales, be a sales clerk in a natural foods store, be a buyer for a supermarket organic foods department, work in a health club or fitness center or assist in a weight loss clinic or corporate wellness program.
