Who Can Help?

Registered dietitians are uniquely trained to provide advice on food, diet and nutrition. Here’s how to find a registered dietitian:

  • Ask nutrition-related questions and receive feedback by phone or e-mail free of charge from EatRight Ontario. Speak to a registered dietitian by calling toll-free at 1-877-510-5102, if you live in Ontario. Or visit the website to e-mail a dietitian.
  • Find a dietitian through the Nutrition Resource Centre’s online Directory of Dietitians in Public Health.
  • Call the Dietitians of Canada’s Consulting Dietitians Referral Line toll-free at 1-888-901-7776 or use the Find a Dietitian feature on their website.
  • Ask a doctor or nurse practitioner for a referral.
  • Look in the yellow pages under “Dietitians.”
  • Contact your local public health unit: all employ registered dietitians.
