Browse our network of Chicago dietitians to find a dietitian you connect with. When you're ready to book, select who you'd like to meet with. During your first visit, make sure to ask your nutrition coach about the available nutrition programs that can help you reach your goals. They'll also help you set up the Foodsmart app for day-to-day support.


Customize your plan with delicious meals to meet your goals.

Work with your dietitian to plan your meals from thousands of chef-inspired recipes. Sort by your dietary preferences, budget, and ingredients you already have on hand with our Cookitnow feature. 


Order food for delivery or pickup.

Foodsmart can also help you save money on meals by helping you find discounted groceries in Chicago and creating a nutrition plan that works with your budget.

Your dietitian will start your first visit by asking about your current health goals, eating habits, medical/family history, food preferences, cooking skills, and more, to get a full picture of who you are and how they can set you up for success. From there, you'll create small, achievable goals and work with your nutrition coach to stay on-track!

During follow-up consultations, you will check in on progress, dive deeper into your personalized goals, and get help with any challenges you encounter along the way.

Working with a dietitian is a wonderful addition to any care management team. We'll work to understand your current medications, protocols and goals, then develop a nutrition plan that can fit seamlessly into your routine.
