    Take up a home science programme after Class 12 or equivalent. This is offered as BSc (Home Science) or B.A (Home Science). The next step is to go for a Master’s degree in Home Science with specialisation in Food Science and Nutrition. Some agricultural universities, too, offer B.H.Sc and M.H.Sc programmes. Preference is given to students with Science in Class 12. You should pursue a postgraduate diploma/ master’s degree in dietetics.


    Dieticians are experts in clinical and nutritional matters. They study people’s diet and try to promote good health by advocating a healthy diet that might differ from person to person. Dieticians work in hospitals, nursing care facilities and physician and health practitioner offices, focusing on patients' health through diet and nutrition.


    You need to clear Registered Dietetics (RD) exam by the Indian Dietetics Association (IDA). You must be a life member of IDA before taking the RD exam. Registration for IDA membership and application forms for the RD exam can be downloaded from the official website of IDA.
