See a Dietitian


Services Offered




The dietitian is an expert in human nutrition who helps students adopt healthy eating habits and make informed and nutritious choices while maintaining a healthy relationship with food.
Other than general healthy nutrition, the dietitian also helps students with particular dietary needs achieve optimal nutrition, such as:

  • Low iron status
  • Vegetarianism
  • High cholesterol and/or triglycerides,
  • Lactose intolerance or food allergies
  • Gastrointestinal conditions such as IBS.

Similarly if you are an athlete who exercises vigorously on a daily basis, it is important to see a dietitian to make sure you are getting enough to eat and to minimize the possible risks for nutritional deficiencies.

With so much information out there in the media, your dietitian can help you to separate facts from fiction and eliminate misconceptions of food choices to attain and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Brown Student Services building, 3rd floor
3600 McTavish
Montreal, Quebec, H3A 0G3

To make an appointment with the dietitian you can go to McGill Student Health Services front desk or call Health Services at 514 398 6017.
