The Association for Nutrition (AfN) defines and advances standards of evidence-based practice across the field of nutrition and at all levels within the workforce.

Our Charitable Objects are to:

  • Promote the health of the public by the promotion and maintenance of high standards of practice among, and the regulation of, nutritionists;
  • Advance the study and practice of nutritional science and medicine;
  • Advance the education of the public and to promote research for the public benefit in the field of nutrition, health and allied subjects.


The work that we carry out is broadly split into three parts:

Defining standards for the training, practice and continuing professional development of nutrition professionals.

Advancing standards of nutrition competence across the wider workforce.

Communicating with the media and others in public and policy is a vital element of our work, as well as keeping our registrants updated on our progress.
