Eating Well, Living Well - British Dietetic Association


The British Dietetic Association (BDA) is the professional association and trade union for UK dietitians with over 8,000 members. The BDA represents the whole of the dietetic workforce – practitioners, researchers, educators, support workers and students.  The Association provides a large amount of information for anyone interested in food and nutrition as well as dietetics as a career.

BDA members also have access to a wide variety of resources and support in their work or practice.Dietitians are the only qualified health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutritional problems at an individual and wider public-health level. They work with both healthy and sick people. Uniquely, dietitians use the most up-to-date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease which they translate into practical guidance to enable people to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices.

Dietitians work in the NHS, private practice, industry, education, research, sport, media, public relations, publishing, government and Non-Government Organisations (NGOs). Dietitians advise and influence food and health policy across the spectrum from government, to local communities and individuals.

Eating Well, Living Well will cover topics such as the importance of exercise to healthy living, how to spot a fad diet, savvy cooking practices and facts on food labelling. There will also be an Ask the Expert section, whereby readers can put forward their dietary and health related questions to the BDA experts, plus healthy recipe ideas for meals low in fat, saturated fat, sugar and salt, but high in taste!


Over a million people interested in food and nutrition over a 12 month period.
