Title: Kids Eat Right Ensuring Quality Nutrition


1
Kids Eat RightEnsuring Quality Nutrition
2
Childhood Obesity Prevention is a Top Priority
  • Nearly 10 years since Surgeon General report and
    childhood obesity rates still at epidemic
    proportions
  • There is a new level of urgency to end the
    childhood obesity epidemic and more people are
    getting involved than ever before
  • The importance of the issue is highlighted by the
    First Ladys Lets Move Campaign

3
Childhood Obesity Prevention Strategies
  • Many of the childhood obesity prevention
    strategies have focused on restricting fat,
    sugar, sweetened beverages, and junk food
  • Strategies have NOT addressed the total nutrient
    needs of children resulting in chronic low intake
    of nutrient rich foods
  • Consequently, many American children are
    simultaneously over-fed AND under-nourished

4
Poor Nutrition Results In
  • Visible problem of overweight and obesity
  • Over 30 of kids 2-19 are overweight or obese
  • 16.9 obese
  • 14.8 overweight
  • Invisible problems of undernourished and hunger
  • Over 22 of children live in homes with
    insufficient food

5
Undernourished
  • The majority of children and adolescents have
    inadequate consumption of nutrients, especially
    vitamins A, C, D, and E, and phosphorus and
    magnesium
  • These are critical for normal growth and
    development, learning and cognition

6
Undernourished
  • 40 of the calories consumed by US youth have no
    nutritive value other than calories, regardless
    of whether these children are normal weight or
    overweight.
  • These food choices are displacing higher-nutrient
    foods
  • Childhood obesity and under-nourishment are BOTH
    consequences of what children are NOT eating

7
Undernourishment and Learning
  • Poor nutrition and hunger interferes with
    cognitive function and is associated with lower
    achievement
  • Even well nourished students who skip breakfast
    have difficulty concentrating and scoring well on
    tests

8
The Family Nutrition and Physical Activity Survey
  • In 2010, the ADA Foundation fielded the Family
    Nutrition and Physical Activity Survey to gain a
    better understanding of childrens attitudes and
    behaviors that influence nutrient consumption and
    healthy weights

9
Survey Methodology
  • Follow-up to a similar 2003 survey
  • Knowledge Networks fielded survey in Feb 2010
    with pairs of children and parents randomly
    selected from nationally representative panel.
  • Parents with children aged 8 to 17 comprise the
    three samples
  • 754 pairs of children and parents that are
    representative of the US population
  • 209 African American
  • 230 Hispanic

10
Survey Objectives
  • 2003 and 2010 data assessed for
  • Changes in parents awareness of childrens
    attitudes and behaviors (child-parent dyads)
  • Changes in childrens attitudes and behaviors
  • 2010 data assessed for
  • Child-parent dyad correlation by race
  • Childrens attitudes and behaviors by race,
    gender, household income, and school grades

11
From 2003 to 2010 Children and Parents Make
Progress
12
Areas of Improvement
  • Increase in alignment of answers of children and
    parents, indicating more awareness of parents
    when it comes to their childrens attitudes,
    behaviors, and choices when it comes to food and
    activity.
  • Decrease in childrens purchases from vending
    machines or snack bars, fast food restaurants,
    and convenience stores.
  • More families eating meals together and
    participating in physical activity together. More
    children eating regularly scheduled dinners.

Role Models
If you had to name one person who you admire, who
would that be?

Summary
  • There are still significant barriers to adequate
    nutrient consumption including lack of nutrition
    knowledge, skipping meals, and eating for reasons
    other than hunger
  • Children want to eat healthier and be more
    physically active and see their parents as their
    1 role model
  • Schools and families provide a great opportunity
    to support a quality nutrition approach

27
Kids Eat Right
  • Launched in November 2010 by the American
    Dietetic Association (ADA) and the American
    Dietetic Association Foundation (ADAF)
  • Purpose to re-frame the childhood obesity
    prevention dialogue to include quality nutrition

28
Kids Eat Right Goals
  • Childhood obesity prevention efforts
    comprehensively address the nutrient needs of all
    youth increasing attention towards the foods kids
    need to eat more often.
  • ADA members take actions supporting the White
    House Task Force for childhood obesity prevention
    to improve nutrition and physical activity in
    communities, schools and with families.
  • RDs are sought to provide evidence-based
    nutrition guidance supporting healthy weight and
    quality nutrition.

29
Kids Eat Right
  • ADA is mobilizing its 71,000 members participate
    in activities to support a quality nutrition
    approach
  • Using Fuel Up to Play 60 to help schools make
    changes with students
  • Leading parent workshops
  • Joining community coalitions and providing
    nutrition expertise to childhood obesity
    prevention efforts
  • Meeting with school leaders to discuss the
    importance of quality school meals and the link
    between nutrition and learning

30
Kids Eat Right
  • When addressing childhood obesity, it is critical
    to include a quality nutrition approach to ensure
    we are not unintentionally harming our children
  • Registered Dietitians have the education,
    training, and expertise to ensure childrens
    diets have all the necessary nutrients for proper
    growth and development
  • As part of the Kids Eat Right initiative,
    Registered Dietitians across the country are
    volunteering their time and expertise to help
    communities, schools, and families address
    quality nutrition
