Why choose an AfN Registered Nutritionist?
It is important to check qualifications when choosing a nutritionist. The Association for Nutrition (AfN) is the independent regulator for Registered Nutritionists. Their role is to protect and benefit the public.
A Registered Nutritionist will be found on the UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists. To be listed on the Register a person must be a competent, qualified nutrition professional who meets rigorous standards of competence and professionalism.
The UKVRN is the only Register of qualified nutritionists recognised by Public Health England, NHS Choices and NHS Careers. Search the Register here.
