Information

Registered Dietitian (RD) is a protected title across Canada. Registered dietitians must obtain a post-secondary education in food and nutrition and complete practical experience from clinical settings such as hospitals.

Registered dietitians are regulated health professionals registered with a provincial regulatory body. The College of Dietitians of British Columbia (CDBC) uphold the highest standards on education and ethics to protect the public. 

Titles such as Registered Holistic Nutritionist or Certified Nutritional Practitioner do not indicate a provincially regulated health professional meaning there is no particular standard for education, experience, ethics or protection to the public.

Yes. Currently, our dietitians are only registered in the province of British Columbia. We are unable to provide services to residents of other provinces or territories at this time.

Little Spuds registered dietitians are located in the greater Victoria, BC area. We are currently offering telephone or online video chat services due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Telephone and virtual services allow our dietitians to provide services to any resident of British Columbia located anywhere in BC. 

Payment for nutrition services is due after the initial nutrition consultation by cash, cheque or e-transfer.

If you do not have extended health benefits or the service is not covered by your plan, your receipt may be claimed as a non-refundable tax credit. We do not do direct billing at this time.
