About us

Welcome to the web pages of the BDA Sports Nutrition Specialist Group.

The group is for dietitians and nutritionists who work in sport or have an interest in sport.


The aims of the group are to:

  • Act as a voice for dietitians/nutritionists working in sport and exercise nutrition and to raise their profile.
  • Provide professional development opportunities for dietitians and sports dietitians/nutritionists.
  • Develop resources to support dietitians/nutritionists working in sport and exercise nutrition.

Several study days are organised every year – we aim to cover areas that are current and topical in the world of sport.

The Sports Nutrition Specialist Group also has sports nutritionist members and we encourage all of those who are on the Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register (SENr) to join the group.

Key BDA members sit on the board of the SENr and it is planned to develop the links between the Sports Nutrition group and SENr in the future in order to strengthen the role of sports dietitians and nutritionists.
