You don’t have to do MBBS in order to become a Nutritionist. If you have done 12th in PCB or home science then you are eligible to become a nutritionist. You can opt for BA or BSc in food science in which honours program only admits the students from science background as it includes subjects like biochemistry, botany, zoology, physics and chemistry whereas pass program can be done by student of any stream. If you are a graduate then you can go for post graduation in nutrition/food science.
Some colleges who offer nutrition and detection courses are:
No, MBBS or any other medicine degree is not required for being a Nutritionist. MBBS majorly deals with Anatomy.
Nutrition is definitely a great career option and I am happy that you have been thinking on this option for a career.
After 12th Science with Physics, Chemistry and Biology as the group, can opt for Food Science course. BSc Food Science is available in the majority of Universities in India. Dietician is also an alternative which I can suggest.
Which city/state do you belong to? If you can let me know this, I can suggest you colleges where you can do Nutrition course and become a Nutritionist.
