Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a Dietitian and a Nutritionist?

Only qualified individuals who have met national standards for education and training and who are members of the provincial regulatory bodies can call themselves a Registered Dietitian. The title Registered Dietitian “RD” is protected by law through provincial legislation. The term Nutritionist is not protected.

Are Registered Dietitian services covered under OHIP?

Unfortunately, fees are not covered by OHIP. However many private insurance plans cover some or all of the cost of your nutrition counseling sessions. Check with your insurance provider for details.

How is my approach different from other nutrition programs?

My approach is progressive, cautious, not anti-medicine, will not make you afraid of food, or feel dependant on expensive testing, restrictive diet regimes or supplements. You will be provided with helpful recommendations to make lifestyle changes for improving your health while remaining sensitive to cost and practicality.
