Registered Dietician

A registered dietician (RD) is a healthcare professional who provides individuals with nutritional guidance and information about general health. According to the “Dietitian” page on the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science website, “Dietitians blend scientific research, nutrition, behavioral science, and social science to promote health, prevent disease, and shape the dietary choices of healthy and sick people.” LifeSpring Home Nutrition works with an RD to ensure all clients have tailored meals and access to essential information about developing a healthy diet. RDs monitor client health and adjust meal plans as needed to ensure people continue receiving nourishing and appropriate meals.

What Is a Registered Dietician?

RDs have an essential role in healthcare. Studies have shown that “[t]he registered dietitian is currently the single identifiable group of health care professionals with the standardized education, clinical training, continuing education, and national credentialing requirements necessary to provide nutrition therapy.” Weekly delivered meals benefit from the input of an RD to ensure each dish offers a balanced diet. 

RDs help facilitate personalized meal plans by doing the following: 

  • Addressing behaviors or habits affecting nutrition 
  • Empowering people to make better dietary choices 
  • Ensuring nutritional balance
  • Adjusting meal plans based on changing needs 
  • Ensuring meal plans align with health goals 
  • Incorporating personal, religious, medical, or cultural preferences 
  • Tailoring meals based on a person’s medical history 

Often, healthcare providers refer people to meal delivery programs like LifeSpring Home Nutrition. An RD can use the information provided by healthcare providers to create tailored meal plans. Most consultations, assessments, and education take place over the phone to ensure everyone has access to the same level of support regardless of mobility or transportation issues. However, the RD also makes in-person appointments with clients and may visit their homes for an initial assessment. 

Sharing Resources and Providing Nutritional Education

RDs provide people with nutrition resources and practical advice for healthy living. They also provide essential information and educate communities on the following: 

  • The impact of a healthy diet on gut microbiome
  • Tailoring meal plans to meet the needs of individuals 
  • Providing general information about nutrition and eating a balanced meal
  • Raising awareness about healthy foods and diets

According to Cathleen Anthony, M.B.A., owner of LifeSpring Home Nutrition, an “RD will collect and analyze relevant data about the patient’s medical history, dietary intake, anthropometric measurements, biochemical tests, physical examination (as appropriate), and psychosocial factors. The purpose is to identify the patient’s nutritional needs and risks.”

What Role Does a Registered Dietician Have in Meal Planning?

Some of the key services an RD provides during meal planning include: 

  • Assessing needs and setting goals 
  • Providing insights into managing symptoms 
  • Offering evidence-based nutritional advice
  • Disease prevention
  • A holistic approach to health management 

According to JMIR Formative Research, “Meal planning is a useful tool for achieving healthy eating goals, as it can help individuals with chronic diseases ensure they are consuming a balanced diet that provides the necessary nutrients for good health.”


Accommodating Special Diets With Medically Tailored Meals

Medically tailored meals (MTMs) are generally prescribed by a healthcare professional and ensure people with acute or chronic health issues have access to nutritional meals. According to the Nutrition and Aging Resource Center, “Medically tailored meals help to meet the needs of [individuals] with health conditions that require specific diets such as heart disease, diabetes, and HIV.”

Some of the conditions LifeSpring Home Nutrition accommodates through MTMs include: 

  • Renal disease 
  • Gastrointestinal issues, including inflammatory bowel disorder (IBS) 
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Age-related dietary needs 
  • Post-surgery recovery 
  • Weight management 
  • Cancer support 
  • Malnutrition
  • Heart disease 
  • Celiac disease 

People with medical conditions benefit from having access to weekly meal deliveries tailored to their unique needs. 

How Does Speaking With a Registered Dietician Improve Meal Planning?

Meal planning is an important part of maintaining a healthy diet and managing medical conditions. People benefit from understanding the effects of various foods on overall health and the symptoms of specific conditions. An RD helps people develop effective and appropriate meal plans while explaining how these dietary changes will improve the person’s health. 

Speaking with an RD does the following: 

  • Provides peace of mind 
  • Ensures people understand the importance of healthy dietary and lifestyle choices
  • Provides people with an opportunity to ask questions about general nutrition 

RDs ensure meal plans take into consideration all factors impacting a person’s diet and physical health, including: 

  • Age
  • Height 
  • Weight 
  • Gender
  • Activity level
  • Current health symptoms 
  • Psychosocial factors 
  • Environmental factors 
  • Medical diagnosis 
  • Cultural expectations and preferences 
  • Religious preferences 

Dieticians also provide people with appropriate resources by connecting them to federal, state, or local services and information relevant to their needs. Many people are unaware of the many programs available to help them establish and maintain a healthy life.

I had a catastrophic event requiring a long hospital stay and at discharge my HMO offered Lifespring meal services. Initially, I was offered a puree diet and then as I improved a regular diet. Staff were kind, patient, and their supervisor, Christina was extremely accommodating. This is an amazing company who goes the extra mile to ensure patients receive their meals promptly. The food is delicious with a variety of meals. I would highly recommend Lifespring.

Balanced meals excellent customer service. Thank you
I've been receiving Lifespring meals for the past several years. I find them to be fresh, convenient, and delicious! The meals are both balanced and nutritious, and, because they are prepared fresh, and then flash frozen; all one needs is a microwave! Delivery is prompt and courteous, and if ever you want to make a change, the friendly office staff is available by phone. Thank you, Lifespring! 🤗😘
