Abstract

Sustainable food system (SFS) competence is a new and recognized knowledge area for nutrition and dietetics professionals (NDP). This research seeks to describe the SFS knowledge-seeking behavior of NDP.

Secondary data analysis of 231 anonymous self-assessments collected between September 2020 to December 2021 indicate a high proportion (41%) of self-assessed “beginners” in this topic at a mixture of career stages.

There was a preference for learning about topics that already have significant public attention globally. More advanced practitioners sought more applied information.

These results are informative for updating education and professional development tools for NDP.
