Dietary Aide Job Overview

Dietary aides work with a dietitian to prepare food based on recipes for a specific purpose. Dietary aides typically have to consider health-related situations when preparing meals and recipes.

Some people earn their bachelor’s degree in a related field before becoming a dietary aide.
