As it emerges and the world discovers the value of it, it will continue to define and re-define itself.

Employment of dietitians and nutritionists is expected to increase 20 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than average for all occupations. In recent years, there has been increased interest in the role of food in promoting health and wellness, particularly as a part of preventative healthcare in medical settings. The importance of diet in preventing and treating illnesses such as diabetes and heart disease is now well known. More dietitians and nutritionists will be needed to provide care for people with these conditions. An aging population also will increase the need for dietitians and nutritionists in nursing homes.
