Sharing the love through good nutrition

Upholding the value of good nutrition for Filipino children, fast-growing food chain Minute Burger recently launched a nationwide feeding program called "Share the Love."

Spread throughout communities with Minute Burger stores, the burger joint distributed food products to public schools and daycare centers in Manila, Pampanga, Cebu, and Davao.

Reflecting the brand promise of affordable but high-quality products, the children were treated to Minute Burger's beefy cheeseburger with special dressing and a slice of cheddar cheese; and vanilla flavored Good Milk, which meets the required daily bone-building dose of calcium and is infused with other essential nutrients.

"This feeding program is our way of giving back to the communities that have supported Minute Burger through the years," says Minute Burger president Judy Wong-Guevara, who personally spearheaded the project and personally visited the sites with the company's team of managers.

Minute Burger plans on conducting this feeding program regularly across all the communities served by the stores.

"We want to nurture the bright future of children across the Philippines through good nutrition," concludes Wong-Guevara. "We are thankful for this opportunity for Minute Burger to make a difference at the grassroots level, in the life of communities throughout the country."

'Nutrition Week' at Hardyston Middle School yields healthy meals, community service, sweat

Published Mar 26, 2013 at 3:10 pm (Updated Mar 27, 2013)

Cardio kick-boxing

Adriana Purcell

HARDYSTON Local Hardyston Middle School student Adriana Purcell with help from the brand new Pass It Along chapter which she helped to begin saw her idea for a Nutrition Week realized from inception to completion during the week of March 11.

With inspiration from the National Nutrition Week initiative, started in 1973 by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Purcell spearheaded efforts to shape a health-conscious menu for an entire week; helped put together a healthy cooking class that served as both an instructional tool for student participants as well as a charity effort, since all food products produced in the class were donated to local food pantry Manna House; and recruited teachers as instructors for the capstone event for the week, a free exercise class open to students, staff and middle school parents comprised of 90 minutes of combined instruction in kickboxing and Zumba.

Obesity is not only a problem in our country, but is now an epidemic," said Purcell, a seventh-grader at Hardyston. "Since I am a first-hand witness of the way Hardyston Middle School students eat, my job as a student is to educate my friends."

When words didn't work, the only other way to help my school that I could think of was to incorporate fun into education, and that is exactly what I did," Purcell continued. "Everyone had a great week, and it feels even better that my friends, for the most part, listened.

'); //-->

In the spirit of volunteerism, all instructors, faculty and staff involved in Nutrition Week events donated their time, effort and expertise. Chapter members Shawn Gindhart and Zackary Epright, also in the seventh grade, helped Purcell facilitate events for the week, and helped increase visibility of the events and attendance through the bulletin board they designed.

Megan Kowalski, a sixth grade Language Arts teacher at the school, served as the kickboxing instructor, and brings in outside subject matter knowledge from her work at the Franklin CKO Kickboxing franchise. Katie Kuplin, the middle schools Family Consumer Sciences teacher, donated her classroom space and teaching time to the cooking class, and also served as the Zumba instructor for the exercise portion of the initiative.

Mead Johnson Nutrition's Stock Is Now Efficiently Valued

Mead Johnson Nutrition (MJN) is up 19% since being recommended at $68 in early December 2012. $81 was my price target, based on a 9% five-year EPS growth rate.

While some consumer staples stocks have gone up more in the search for dividend yield, those stocks still have the private label specter hanging over them and will have continual sales volume pressure in the US and most likely in Europe as well. MJN should not have the pricing pressure as long as prices are not raised, which should make MJN a safer long-term holding than other staples stocks, many of which are overvalued at this point. But Mead Johnson's 1.8% yield will not be competitive in the shorter term.

The stock had flirted with $81 but fell back to the low 70s when Chinese law changed -- it no longer allows individuals to buy large amounts of Mead's formula in Hong Kong and take it to the mainland to resell. This sort of distributional curiosity was caused by a consumer overreaction to the sale of formula by domestic Chinese companies that had tainted domestic milk in it. This was about five years ago. Mead's Hong Kong formula is imported from The Netherlands, while its formula that is sold in mainland China is manufactured in China, but made from imported milk. A disproportionate amount of Chinese sales were being made via Hong Kong, so sales have been affected.

As a premier formula seller in China, I feel that it is just a matter of time, and some advertising, before sales are back to normal. The stock had been moving up on just that thought, I believe. Then the stock got to $81 after Danone (DANOY) reported strong formula sales in China and the Far East. Overall pricing was up 9% vs. the Street's expectation of 6%. That makes me feel better about the longer-term pricing level maintenance for Mead, though I would not raise my EPS growth rate for it.

I would be somewhat leery, however, about the fact that some of the pricing taken by Danone, the No. 2 seller in China, may have come from sales problems at Mead. Danone just came out with some new products, but it also seems too easy to conclude that Mead's sales adjustment from Hong Kong to mainland China formula has been discounted in one quarter.

Therefore, earnings to be reported on April 25 may be somewhat disappointing vs. the optimism engendered by the Danone report.

Canada Works to Improve Nutrition in Developing Countries Through Innovative Partnerships With the Agriculture Sector

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Apr 19, 2013) - As part of Canada's commitment to achieve global food security and improved nutrition, the Honourable Julian Fantino, Minister of International Cooperation, helped bring together international leaders today to discuss how to reduce undernutrition in children while boosting the economic potential of developing nations. Minister Fantino co-hosted the "Investing in Agriculture for Nutrition" event, with Mr. Joe Costello, T.D., Ireland's Minister of State for Trade and Development, held today on the margins of the spring meetings of the World Bank Group and the International Monetary Fund in Washington, DC.

"Canada welcomed today's discussion on how we can better leverage agriculture sector investments to help achieve food security and improve nutrition around the world," said Minister Fantino. "Canada's investments in nutrition-either through direct nutrition interventions, such as vitamin supplements, or through indirect interventions, such as more nutritious crops or agricultural research-lead to healthier children and mothers, reduces poverty and improves economic growth in developing countries."

"Better-nourished populations are more productive: they innovate, they earn more and they invest more. They are the future producers and consumers," said Joe Costello, Ireland's Minister for Trade and Development.

Minister Costello shared the key messages from the Hunger-Nutrition-Climate Justice conference, which he co-hosted in Dublin earlier this week under Ireland's Presidency of the EU.

"Addressing the links between hunger, nutrition and climate justice has been a clear development priority for Ireland's EU Presidency. We learned some very important lessons during our international conference in Dublin. I am committed to bringing the voices of the smallholder farmers and community representatives, who shared their experiences of growing food in a world impacted by climate change, to international policy discussions," Minister Costello said.

The Government of Canada's focus on poverty alleviation was affirmed in the Economic Action Plan 2013 The creation of the new Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development will tackle poverty by supporting improved nutrition for those most in need around the world. The amalgamation will help the Government of Canada achieve greater efficiency and accountability for its international development assistance.

Global Medical Nutrition Market 2012-2016

NEW YORK, April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Global Medical Nutrition Market 2012-2016


Introduction to the Market

Medical or clinical nutrition is the nourishment or aliment given to people who are not able to obtain essential nutrients from ingested food or through body processes. Nutrition forms an important link between diet, health, and disease. The essential nutrients that a person should include in the diet are vitamins, carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and minerals in the required quantities. Medical nutrition helps to treat and control several diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, GI diseases, cancer, and kidney diseases through the supply of essential nutrients for the optimal functioning of various organs of the body. Medical nutrition is available in the form of liquids, powders, tablets, injections, or foods such as yogurt and probiotics.

Market Overview

The Global Medical Nutrition market is expected to grow at a steady pace, clocking a CAGR of 6.7 percent during the period 2012-2016. The market was dominated by the Americas in 2012, followed by the EMEA region and the APAC region. One of the main drivers in this market is a marked increase in the incidence and prevalence of various diseases and illnesses globally. Further, the increasing aging population worldwide, which is in need of medical nutrition products to treat various diseases and conditions, is contributing to the growth of the market. However, one of the major challenges in this market is the unfavorable reimbursement regulations imposed by the government in various countries. The lack of standardization in reimbursement norms for medical nutrition products has rendered these products unaffordable to price-conscious consumers.

Regional Overview

The Global Medical Nutrition market was dominated by the Americas, followed by the EMEA region and the APAC region. The US represents the largest regional market for medical nutrition products in the Americas due to the increasing availability of innovative products and the growing aging population. In the EMEA region, Europe represents the largest market for medical nutrition products. Within Europe, Germany and the UK are expected to drive the growth of the market mainly because of the increasing aged population and the growing number of people suffering from health disorders. The high demand for medical nutrition products in Australia, China, and India are driving the growth of the market in the APAC region.

Nutrition Tips for Busy Lifestyles

MISSION, KS--(Marketwired - Apr 18, 2013) - (Family Features) While it's important to maintain a regular health and wellness regimen, busy schedules and last minute commitments can sometimes send us off track. Many Americans may try to maintain a balanced diet but continue to fall short on valuable key nutrients necessary for a healthy body.

In fact, according to data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), conducted by the Centers for Disease Control, the overall quality of the American diet gets a failing grade. According to the Healthy Eating Index, adults (19+ years) score just 50 out of 100 on the quality of their diets.

While hectic lifestyles may play a role in this failing grade, registered dietitian and best-selling author, Dave Grotto has a few simple and effective tips to maintain proper nutrition even when time is tight.

Eat nutrient-filled meals. Set aside five minutes to pack a healthy lunch before you head to work each day. Prepare meals such as a salad with grilled chicken or a turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread -- healthy options that provide a combination of protein and fiber to give you sustained energy throughout the day. "It's vital that we find ways to get the nutrients our bodies need and eating well-balanced meals can do just that," says Grotto.

Take your vitamins. In addition to proper food choices, quality dietary supplements can be helpful to fill nutrient gaps. As someone who believes that the vitamin experience can be enjoyable, Grotto has partnered with Nature Made in support of their VitaMelts line. "Nature Made VitaMelts come in great flavors like juicy orange and melt smoothly in your mouth without water which provides an enjoyable vitamin experience," says Grotto. "Plus they come in a handy, portable flip-top pack which can fit perfectly in your gym bag, or work bag, an added convenience factor on days you may not be eating as properly as you should."

Stay active and enjoy the sunshine. Even if it is minimal, find time to move each day while you're at work; take the stairs instead of the elevator or go for a ten minute walk around the block. An added benefit of being outdoors, even for a short amount of time, is the exposure to sunlight, which helps skin produce vitamin D3. Unfortunately, many food sources do not provide nearly enough vitamin D to meet dietary recommendations. Grotto recommends a vitamin supplement such as Nature Made VitaMelts Vitamin D3 in a creamy vanilla flavor.

Don't forget to take time for yourself. Rest and relaxation can help to rejuvenate your mind, and is an important part of an overall healthy lifestyle. Not only does Grotto recommend getting six to eight hours of sleep a night, he also suggests keeping to the same bedtime each night. Maintaining such a simple routine can really do the body good.

Africa: Report On Nutrition Shows Progress in Combating Childhood Stunting

A United Nations nutrition report released today shows that progress has been made in recent years in addressing stunting in children, and calls for increased efforts to accelerate a response to a condition that affects some 165 million children across the world.

"Stunting can kill opportunities in life for a child and kill opportunities for development of a nation," said the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) Executive Director Anthony Lake. "Our evidence of the progress that is being achieved shows that now is the time to accelerate it."

One in four of all children less than five years of age is stunted because of chronic under-nutrition in crucial periods of growth. The damage done to a child's body and brain by stunting is irreversible. It drags down performance at school and later at work, and puts children at a higher risk of dying from infectious diseases.

The UNICEF report, 'Improving Child Nutrition: The achievable imperative for global progress' notes that a key to success against stunting is focusing attention on pregnancy and the first two years of a child's life.

An estimated 80 per cent of the world's stunted children live in just 14 countries. The report highlights successes in scaling up nutrition and improving policies in 11 countries: Ethiopia, Haiti, India, Nepal, Peru, Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sri Lanka, Kyrgyzstan, the United Republic of Tanzania and Viet Nam.

Stunting is reduced through a series of simple and proven steps such as improving women's nutrition, early and exclusive breastfeeding, providing additional vitamins and minerals as well as appropriate food - especially in pregnancy and the first two years of a child's life.

In the Maharashtra state in India, the percentage of stunted children dropped from 39 per cent in 2005 to 23 per cent in 2012 largely because of support to frontline workers who focus on improving child nutrition.

In Peru, stunting fell by a third between 2006 and 2011 following an initiative that lobbied political candidates to sign a commitment to reduce stunting in children under five by five per cent over the span of five years and to lessen inequities between urban and rural areas.

Ethiopia cut stunting from 57 per cent to 44 per cent between 2000 and 2011 by implementing a national nutrition programme, providing a safety net in the poorest areas and boosting nutrition assistance through communities.

The report says that existing solutions and the work of new partnerships represent an unprecedented opportunity to address child under-nutrition through countries accelerating progress through national projects coordinated with donor support and measurable targets.

The 20th International Congress of Nutrition Will Be Held in Spain For The First Time

GRANADA, Spain , April 16, 2013 /CNW/ - Granada will host the 20th International Congress of Nutrition (20th ICN) promoted by the International Union of Nutritional Sciences (IUNS), and the event will be organised by the Spanish Nutrition Society. This is the most prestigious event in the nutrition sector at an international level and will bring together more than 5,000 specialist professionals in this field from 15 to 20 September.

According to Professor Angel Gil , Chairman of the Congress, "the increasing relevance of health and quality of life in people's priorities and aspirations and the fundamental role of nutritional sciences in this context, makes the 2013 International Congress of Nutrition a not-to-miss media and social event."

Prof. Gil also explained that "an increasing number of European citizens are immigrants from Africa , Latin America and Eastern Europe . Many of these people try to continue with their own diets and lifestyle habits, although at the same time they need to integrate into the culture of their hosting countries. Therefore, the slogan chosen for ICN 2013 is 'Joining cultures through nutrition."'

"On behalf of the Spanish Nutrition Society and the IUNS, I would like to invite you to come to Granada and enjoy the scientific and cultural activities that are currently being designed and developed for the 20th International Congress of Nutrition," he added.

The conference logo depicts a pomegranate, the seeds of which are arranged as a map of the world, showing the world's countries with Spain at the centre. It also represents "Granada," the city in which the conference will be held. "We wanted to represent the pomegranate as a symbol of good food, fertility, prosperity, hope, abundance and love. The combination of the seeds of all countries brings to mind the slogan: 'Joining cultures through nutrition."'

An extensive and complete programme

The congress addresses eight major topics related to food and nutrition and is made up of 88 parallel symposia and 38 symposia sponsored by public entities and companies that will address the role of nutrition and public health. It also addresses the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases and the impact of technology on the nutritional qualities of food, through to food safety aspects and basic science studies. More than 3,500 scientific communications will be presented along with six plenary conferences, 24 special conferences and eight debates about topics of international interest.

Nutrition for a just world

IT is entirely fitting that Ireland is hosting the April 15-16 International Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Climate Justice in Dublin.

Fitting because it was in Ireland that a historic injustice took place -- the Great Hunger of 1845-52, in which one million human beings died, many of them children.

And fitting because Ireland has been and is a leader in the global fight against another great social injustice: stunting.

If you have never heard of stunting, you are by no means alone. A vast human tragedy, it is one of the least reported, least recognised, least understood issues before us.

Stunting, caused by chronic under nutrition early in a child's life, blights the lives of some 165 million children around the world. It is far more than a problem of inadequate growth/height for these children. It can trap them in a lifetime cycle of poor nutrition, illness, poverty and inequity.

Why? Because stunted growth in the first months of a child's life means stunted development of the brain and thus, of cognitive capacity. Permanently.

Stunting hampers not only the future ability of an individual child to learn and earn, but also the social and economic progress of the countries in which they live. In real terms, it cuts school performance, translating into a reduction in adult income by 22 per cent on average. It also leads to increased risk of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease in adult life.

In 2011 it was estimated that more than one in every four children under five in the developing world were stunted, or 28 per cent -- an estimated 160 million children. 80 per cent of children globally live in just 14 countries. Stunting continues to be highly prevalent in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, and is highest among low-income countries.

High stunting rates are part of the reason why the world is not on track to reach most of the Millennium Development Goals, notably on extreme poverty and hunger, child and maternal health, and combating HIV and AIDS. Under nutrition contributes to one-third of child deaths and around one-fifth of maternal deaths.

The good news is that it does not have to be this way. In fact, attacking stunting is a huge development opportunity. And a cost effective one.

The New Pregnancy Nutrition Rules

When I was in graduate school, Bridget Swinney's book on infant feeding, "Baby Bites," was one of my textbooks for a course on pediatric nutrition. Later on in life, I returned to her book for help navigating the thorny waters of transitioning my own kids to solids.

Recently, I heard she had published a fourth edition of "Eating Expectantly," a veritable bible for pregnancy nutrition. So I rushed out to get a copy, devoured it in one sitting and stalked her online to score an interview for this column.

"Eating Expectantly" is misleadingly titled--it's not just a book about pregnancy nutrition, is it?

It's really a lifestyle book about the whole "pregnancy season," encompassing pre-conception, pregnancy and that post-baby time when nutrition is important for breastfeeding and getting back in shape.

[See Trouble Trying to Conceive? This May Be Why.]

While food plays an important role in having a healthy baby, environmental influences like chemicals also contribute to a developing baby's "diet" in utero. This fourth edition focuses on living "cleaner" to keep baby's environment safe.

Yes, I was impressed to see how much discussion you devote to cosmetic and household chemicals that may affect pregnancy outcomes. What should women be on the lookout for?

Endocrine-disrupting chemicals can mimic, increase or decrease the action of hormones in the body. They are suspected as contributing to the worldwide decline in semen quality as well as physical abnormalities of the male reproductive tract. Such chemicals are found in amniotic fluid and semen and arrive there in the most innocuous of ways.
