Healthy Start 
  • Study: Food tastes better when perceived as healthy
    A study of female consumers given identical cookies found they preferred the taste of ones marketed with healthful images and messaging. The study found that "restrained" eaters who watch their intake consumed more of the cookies presented as healthful, perhaps on the mistaken belief they were lower in calories. The findings were published in Food Quality and Preference. FoodNavigator (1/28) LinkedInFacebookTwitterGoogle+Email this Story

Dietary Health 
  • Dietitians: Menu planning, small changes are key to healthier eating
    Planning a menu and shopping list and making informed choices can lead to healthy dietary changes, says Erin Corrigan, nutrition manager at Miami Children's Hospital. Natalie Castro-Romero, a dietitian at Baptist Hospital in Miami, says that while people ask her to tell them what to eat, she instead focuses on their current diet and makes small changes that decrease rather than eliminate unhealthy foods.

  • Healthy foods that many people may miss
    Bulgur, chickpeas and kale are healthy foods that many people may not know about, says Lindsey Lee, a clinical dietitian with the University of Alabama-Birmingham Weight Management Services. Spaghetti squash and sunflower seeds are other healthy choices that are available in most grocery stores and can add variety to a healthy diet without adding pounds, Lee says.

Science & Research 
  • Early lunch may lead to greater weight loss, study says
    A study of overweight and obese people who took part in a 20-week weight-loss program found that those who had an early lunch lost an average of 22 pounds, compared with 17 pounds lost by those who ate later, U.S. researchers said. The study, published in the International Journal of Obesity, found that late-lunchers ate less for breakfast, were more likely to skip breakfast and had a lower insulin sensitivity.

  • Blacks can benefit from modified DASH diet, study says
    U.S. researchers who used a culturally modified DASH diet in a study of blacks in two communities found it led to significant increases in fruit and vegetable consumption and made participants more confident about eating healthier. The study, published in the CDC journal Preventing Chronic Disease, showed the diet did not lead to significant decreases in blood pressure but researchers noted it did show the diet was feasible for that demographic group.

  • Fruits, vegetables may cut risk of ER-negative breast cancer
    Researchers looked at data from 20 studies and found that eating more fruits and vegetables was associated with a lower risk of developing estrogen receptor-negative breast cancer. Consuming plenty of fruits and vegetables, however, was not significantly linked with lower overall odds of developing breast cancer. The findings appeared in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. HealthDay News (1/25) LinkedInFacebookTwitterGoogle+Email this Story
  • Study: Miami-Dade Fit-to-Play program improves children's health
    Children and teens in Miami-Dade County's after-school Fit-to-Play program learned about physical fitness and nutrition and were better able to keep a healthy weight and reduce their blood pressure, according to a University of Miami evaluation. Researcher Dr. Sarah Messiah said Fit-to-Play is evidence-based and "a resource for all children in this community that is accessible, affordable and year-round -- something we haven't really had before.” The Miami Herald (free registration) (1/28) LinkedInFacebookTwitterGoogle+Email this Story
Institutional Foodservice 
  • Should breakfast be served after the start of school?
    Lawmakers in Colorado are considering legislation that would require schools where at least 70% of students qualify for free or reduced-price lunches to serve breakfast after the school day has begun. A sponsor of the bill, Rep. Tony Exum, D-Colorado Springs, said a goal is to give students more time to eat and said schools can choose how and where to serve breakfast. Some possibilities include a grab-and-go style meal and serving breakfast in the classroom. Daily Camera (Boulder, Colo.)/The Associated Press (1/25) LinkedInFacebookTwitterGoogle+Email this Story
