The British Dietetic Association (BDA) is the only body in the UK representing the whole of the dietetic workforce. We are a trade union and professional body representing the professional, educational, public and workplace interests of our members. Founded in 1936, we are one of the oldest and most experienced dietetic organisations in the world.

Membership is open to anyone working in dietetics, in nutrition, or who has an interest in diet or food, throughout the world. We represent the whole of the dietetic workforce - practitioners, researchers, educators, support workers and students.

Dietitians use 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.

The BDA seeks to ensure the fair and equal treatment of all members, including fair representation and access to services and participation. We will seek to protect the rights of all members to be treated with dignity and respect, regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.  We will promote the equality of opportunity for the dietetic profession, and work to remove barriers to career progression

This website provides a large amount of information for anyone interested in food and nutrition as well as dietetics as a career. If you are a BDA member, you will also have access to a wide variety of resources and support in your work or practice.
