It has recently been estimated that one in five early deaths worldwide is associated with poor dietary habits. Addressing this societal challenge through dietetics practice will require substantial human resource investment. However, according to the World Health Organization, there is currently a substantial shortage of healthcare workers, which is expected to increase over the coming decades. Because of this, it is important to develop an understanding of the potential ways that new technologies and digital tools can help to increase the impact of dietetics. This will create value not only for the individual patient, but also as a scalable approach to helping individuals develop improved dietary habits and transition to a service that is based on prevention and self‐care.
