The Role of the Dietitian in the Built Environment

This evidence-based report outlines how the built environment can be planned so healthy choices are the default choices. Dietitians who address the built environment go beyond the traditional approach of nutrition education and act on external factors that influence the food choices people make each day. The built environment can support healthy eating and nutrition through access to healthy food choices.
