The British Dietetic Association (BDA) recognizes that obesity is a serious and growing health problem in the UK. It welcomes the inclusion of reduction in the prevalence of obesity as one of the targets of the Health of the Nation (DoH, 1992). The achievement of this target will depend upon measures aimed at prevention, as well as improved treatment for obesity. State Registered Dietitians (SRDs) are qualified to provide scientifically based, independent information on nutrition and eating behaviour. They have an important contribution to make to both public health measures and health promotion, as well as to the development and implementation of more effective therapeutic strategies to help those who are already obese.
