Fall Journal Club: Juice Displaces Milk and Fruit in High School Lunches

Fall Journal Club: Juice Displaces Milk and Fruit in High School Lunches

October 5, 2021

Meals that provided through the National School Lunch Program have become significantly healthier since the regulations that emerged as part of the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act. This presentation will review the requirements for school meals; highlight changes from the HHFKA; and present a study that tested how the availability of juice influenced student selection of fruit and milk as part of their school lunch. Additional research on evidence-based strategies to increase the selection and consumption of fruit and vegetables in school meals will be shared. The Fall Journal Club series is supported by Elsevier.

Fall Journal Club: Intuitive Eating is Associated With Higher Fruit and Vegetable Intake Among Adults

Fall Journal Club: Intuitive Eating is Associated With Higher Fruit and Vegetable Intake Among Adults

September 27, 2021

Date: September 27, 2021

Time: 1:00 PM - 2:00PM ET

 

We will describe the results of our JNEB publication entitled “Intuitive Eating is Associated with Higher Fruit and Vegetable Intake among Adults”. In this study we measured the relationship between intuitive eating and dietary intake among a population-based sample of 1,830 young adults in Project EAT-IV (Eating and Activity in Teens and Young Adults). Our results suggest that intuitive eating was cross-sectionally related to alignment with public health recommendations for self-reported fruit and vegetable intake, although it was also associated with lower whole grain intake among men. We will also discuss key gaps in research on intuitive eating and implications for research and practice. The Fall Journal Club series is supported by Elsevier.

Fall Journal Club: Impact of Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentives on Household Fruit and Vegetable Expenditures

Fall Journal Club: Impact of Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentives on Household Fruit and Vegetable Expenditures

September 20, 2021

The USDA's Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentive (FINI) grant was established to increase fruit and vegetable purchases among SNAP participants, by providing financial incentives at point of purchase. Between 2016 and 2018, USDA provided $90.3 million in grants to 114 FINI projects. As of September 2017, grantees offered incentives at 2,600 SNAP authorized retail locations in 38 States. This presentation will describe the impact of FINI in terms of program awareness, use of point of sale incentives, and change in self reported monthly fruit and vegetable expenditures among SNAP participants in the treatment and matched comparison groups. The Fall Journal Club series is supported by Elsevier.
