Diet and nutrition

Dietetics is the study of food and nutrition. Dieticians help support your health and wellbeing through healthy, balanced eating.

Dieticians help promote good health through proper eating. They supervise the preparation and service of food, develop modified diets, participate in research, and educate individuals and groups on good nutritional habits.

For medical reasons, a dietician may provide specific artificial nutritional needs to patients unable to consume food normally. Modifying the patient’s diet to address medical issues relating to food intake is also a major part of dietetics. The goals of the dietary department are to provide medical nutritional intervention, obtain, prepare, and serve full of flavour, attractive, and nutritious food. 

Clinical dieticians work in hospitals and other health care facilities to provide nutrition therapy to patients according to the disease processes, provide individual dietary consultations to patients and their family members and also conduct group educations for other health workers, patients and the public. They coordinate both medical records and nutritional needs to assess the patients and make a plan based on their findings.

At our hospitals, we provide dietetics services which include consultations by qualified dieticians. Our dieticians can assess your eating habits and help you form a new eating plan to boost your health and general well-being.
