Sip Your Way to Better Health – What’s the Truth about 100% Fruit Juice?


Wednesday, August 20, 2014 | 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM EDT | Register


There is no question that eating fruit is important for overall health, however, fruit consumption remains surprisingly low, with most Americans consuming less than half of their recommended intake. Research shows that one hundred percent fruit juice is a nutrient-dense drink that can help children and adults, meet fruit intake goals, while also delivering significant nutrients and improving diet quality. Nonetheless, many misperceptions exist about 100% fruit juice’s role in health, and its impact on body composition and weight, particularly in children.  What does the science say?    

Learning Objectives:
1. To understand the role of 100% fruit juice as a nutrient-dense beverage which helps Americans meet dietary guideline recommendations for fruit intake and fills substantial nutrient gaps.
2. To explore the nutrient and economic impact that 100% fruit juice has on meeting fruit shortfalls.  
3. To identify expert guidelines and public health recommendations for including 100% fruit juice as part of a healthy diet.   
4. To understand key findings of scientific research on 100% fruit juice consumption including its effect on diet quality, fruit intake and body composition.

Education, Environmental Change & Evaluation: Combining Multiple Approaches to Nutrition Education & Obesity Prevention in Low-Income Populations

Wednesday, August 27, 2014 | 1:30 - 2:30 PM EDT | Register


Speaker: Andrew Riesenberg, MSPH, Food and Nutrition Service, Western Regional Office


No single strategy has the potential to prevent overweight and obesity, especially among low-income populations. A growing body of evidence calls for multi-component approaches to nutrition education, physical activity promotion, and obesity prevention. Program implementers working on Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) are at the forefront of planning, implementing, and evaluating multi-component strategies and interventions. This session intends to connect research and practice in how direct education, social marketing, and environmental change are best delivered together. Special emphasis will be placed on setting evaluation objectives that measure progress and outcomes in multi-component programs, including measuring parallel objectives in individual and environmental changes. Sponsored by the SNEB Social Marketing Division in cooperation with ASNNA.

Learning objectives:
a. Increase understanding of what a multi-component nutrition education, physical activity, and obesity prevention model looks like;
b. Increase knowledge, skills, and confidence to link education, social marketing, and environmental changes in SNAP-Ed
c. Identify evaluation indicators for multi-component programming with individual, organizational, and environmental changes
