This law provides for the licensure of dietitians, and limits the practice of nutrition only to those with a valid license.
Under this law you cannot advertise or be perceived as “assessing nutritional needs of individuals and groups” etc. You also cannot do or say anything that would give the impression that you are licensed, registered, or call yourself a nutritionist or dietitian.
You may provide weight control services without a license. While most states require approval from a physician or dietitian, Wyoming does not specify this requirement.
You can offer general nonmedical nutritional information, either as part of sales of nutritional products or independently. Retailers can also provide oral or written general nonmedical nutrition information related to food, food materials or dietary supplements or the marketing of food, food materials or dietary supplements.
You are exempt from the law if you are employed by a school district and responsible for menu planning, purchasing of food, meal preparation or food safety, and use general non-medical nutrition information in the performance.
Furthermore, if you are a dietitian serving in the Armed Forces, the Public Health Service of the United States, the Veteran Affairs, a Wyoming department of health nutritional service program under supervision of a licensed dietitian, you can provide such practice if it is related to service or employment.
If you are enrolled in an approved program in dietetics, you can practice dietetic and nutrition services if the services constitute a part of the supervised course of study. If you do partake in practices, you must be designated by a “student” or “trainee” title.
An instructor at a U.S. regionally accredited college or university with a major course of study in human nutrition or an equivalent major course of study is exempt.
