Dietetics and nutrition is the science concerned with the nutritional planning and preparation of foods. A nutritionist applies the scientific principles of nutrition to the preparation of diffrent kinds of food for people enjoying good health and for those suffering from disease. In a hospital , nutritionists are responsible for providing therapeutic diets to patients , especially for those for whom the diet is also a special part of the treatment. They plan menus and device special recipes when necessary. They keep in touch with the patients, observing their progress and explaining their diets to them. Interest in a sound diet, an aptitude for science, organizing ability, ability for teamwork, patience, a sense of responsibility , understanding of people of all ages, backgrounds, temperaments and tastes, basic ideas of the diet patterns prevailing in diffrent parts of the country among the cross sections of society and the ability to express oneself lucidly would be important for aspiring nutritionists.
