Kentucky licenses dietitians and provides certification to nutritionists. Kentucky also protects the titles “licensed dietitian,” “certified nutritionist,” “dietitian,” “nutritionist,” “L.D.,” “C.N.,” or any other words or titles implying the person is a dietitian or nutritionist.

There are no licensure or certification requirements for providing nutrition care, and holistic nutrition professionals may work within their scope of practice.
