There are multiple organs in the body that are unable to develop or function properly without it. Not all fats are equal however – there are good and bad fats. A recent study has shown that South African children mostly consume bad fats that contain high amounts of saturated fatty acids. Read this article to find out which fats are beneficial and which are detrimental to your children’s health.
The gluten-free diet presents unique challenges for children with celiac disease and their families. Prior to diagnosis, children may be quite ill, suffering from poor growth and developmental delay. Upon accurate diagnosis and treatment, children usually improve quickly; however despite rapid improvement of symptoms, compliance with diet may be less than optimal, putting the child once again at risk for the complications of untreated celiac disease. Because children may feel uncomfortable being singled out as “different,” a diet that calls attention to their condition, and thus their differences, presents a unique challenge to parents and caregivers trying to meet the treatment guidelines. Frequent follow-up and monitoring, along with educational resources and support groups can aid families in maintaining a gluten-free diet and provide creative ways to deal with the challenges inherent in a gluten-free lifestyle.
T-3200 Nutrition for Older Adults: Diet and Health Guidelines For Weight Loss Janice Hermann, Extension Nutrition Specialist Healthy Weight Loss Healthy weight loss focuses on a healthy lifestyle. Advice for those who want to lose weight is to aim for a slow, steady weight loss by: • Focusing on health, not appearance. • Setting reasonable weight loss goals. • Eating healthy foods, not “dieting.” • Getting regular physical activity. Reasonable goals Reasonable weight goals are: • Rate - A loss of 1 to 2 pounds a week. • Time frame - A loss of 10 percent body weight over six months. For a 250 pound person, a 10 percent loss over six months would be about 25 pounds. This would be about a one-pound loss per week. A 10 percent weight loss, even if someone is still overweight, can provide many health benefits: • Help blood glucose control. • Lower blood pressure. • Lower LDL cholesterol. People who lose weight slow and steady tend to lose more body fat and less muscle. They are also more likely to keep the weight off.
Head and neck cancers present very unique challenges to the patients, their families, and the social network around them. The areas being treated, whatever the treatment choice may be- surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or any combination of the threeinvolve areas of our body that are responsible for two basic human needs- speaking and swallowing. A recurring theme has always been food. We understand this. Food plays an important role in day to day life. Food gives us sustenance, pleasure and a social outlet. It is used as a reward or as the center of special occasions. Yet, many patients require feeding tubes during their treatment. Those that don’t, struggle to maintain nutrition as a result of the side effects of treatment. And all patients struggle as they transition back to regular eating practices. This cookbook can provide a guide for all head and neck cancer patients. For the most part, the recipes included here are those that are easier to chew or swallow. These recipes have been gathered through the years from patients who have found them useful before, during and after treatment. Basic information about common side effects with eating guidelines for each has also been included. But each person is an individual and everyone’s experience is unique. If there are any questions, one should always check with a healthcare professional about the appropriateness of a dish or a diet.
