I am a UK trained dietitian, having received my Nutrition and Dietetic BSc in 2008 from the University of Surrey. I have professional registration with the HCPC and will follow their Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics. I am also a member of the British Dietetic Association (BDA) and will work with the BDA Social Media Guidance.
My role as a registered dietitian is to ensure that all nutritional advice given is evidenced-based, up-to-date and easy to understand. My posts will not be promoting any fad diets or poorly researched nutritional advice. It is very important to me that my messages can be trusted as reliable and can be used to improve the health of the public.
My blog will be written in my own words, however, when I am quoting another source or getting inspiration from others then I will reference it clearly and will be transparent. I will reference any information that I have used directly to help write my blog. I support other trusted registered dietitians who are promoting sound nutritional advice on social media. As I enter the blogging community I will be respectful of the opinions of others, and I will provide links to support and promote bloggers who provide trustworthy dietetic advice. I have signed up to RDs4Disclosure UK and have pledged to Blog with Integrity.
The nutritional messages posted on my blog are not a substitute for seeing a registered dietitian in person, my blogs are not the same as an individualised diet plan. If you require specific dietary advice please see your doctor for a referral to a dietitian.
Currently I have no sponsored blogs or product reviews. If I do have any sponsorship in the future then it will be clearly disclosed as outlined by the IAB guidelines. If I am reviewing a product I will always give my honest opinion which will not be influenced by any sponsorship or gift. I will abide by the ASA Guidelines if I use affiliate links.
Thank you to Nic’s Nutrition for allowing me to take inspiration from her website to write this disclaimer.
