Our position

Dietitians Australia supports the rights of people with disability to access nutrition support products and Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) services. This is to promote physical, mental and social wellbeing.

People with a disability have unique and sometimes complex food and nutrition needs. Access to APDs and nutrition support products is important to ensure National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participants can realise their goals and aspirations.

The 11 key principles included in this statement focus on NDIS participants in Australia.
