You can work with hospital, nursing home or special clinic where you will chart out individual diet plans for the patients.You could even be working with NGOs and government agencies .Research is yet another option you could consider. International organizations like the UN, UNICEF and WHO as well as those that come under the ministry of Human Resource Development and institutes such as the National Institute of Nutrition also employ these professionals.
