Food for Thought: Exploring Nutrition Resources (Jul. 11, 2017)

September 28, 2019 0 By Ewald Bahringer


Liz and we can get started okay it’s
recording now all right welcome everyone to food for thought it’s been great
getting a chance to meet everyone on our Moodle course as you’ve all been logging
in and introducing yourself so I wanted to introduce Kay & I. Kay Deeney and I are both
work for the national network of libraries of medicine I’m located in the
greater Midwest region office which is located on campus at the University of
Iowa in fair Iowa City Iowa and Kay is from the Pacific Southwest region
she is located at UCLA much warmer out there we don’t have time to go around
and introduce everyone but I will be sharing a little bit of information that
I received from those of you who completed our pre class survey questions
so this is the first time Kay and I have offered this course as a hybrid Moodle
class and we really welcome your feedback this has been fun for both of
us all right I’m going to go ahead and progress through the slides here so
nothing changes on your screen please let us know one thing we ask you all in
advance is who are you and you’ll see that I’m sharing a screen shot today it
looks like we primarily have Health Sciences librarians with us but we do
have several other health professionals public and community college librarians
students and others we’re always interested in what attracts participants
to our class and this course attracts a broad audience feel free to engage with
your classmates in our Moodle discussion board going out there you can learn a
little bit about who else is taking this course alongside you we also asked
everyone what do you hope to learn from this class I’m sharing just a segment of
some of the responses that we got from everyone for some folks it’s supporting
colleagues for Department of dietitians or updating
your knowledge to educational reaches resources to a couple of very honest
participants who are just looking for some MLA continuing education credit
thanks everyone kay and I are using this feedback to
tailor the course and to highlight some resources that meet your needs I wanted
to share our class objectives again these are also available in the
introduction of our Moodle course we have four general objectives for the
course this first week you’ve been online to introduce yourself and I’ve
been responding to many of you to welcome you on board
we’ve also asked you to familiarize yourself with nutrition vocabulary and
review information from FDA to get started those resources are all
available in the Moodle course online here in this first webinar Kay and I are
going to discuss food labels and resources for understanding them we’re
going to present nutrition resources available through the USDA will be
presenting resources available from the Food and Drug Administration we’ll be
presenting nutrition resources from the Center for Disease Control and from the
Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics so at our second webinar which is coming up in
another week we will continue with more advanced topics such as searching for
nutrition in PubMed in pub egg and in some other databases I shared some
information on the Moodle cloud in the Moodle course online about defining
nutrition terms so the purpose behind sharing this information for you is
twofold one is just for you to understand these terms for you to use to
define these terms and the second purpose is really to allow you a
resource to mine terms to use to search other resources which we’ll talk about
later in our second webinar what I mean by this is to use to locate terms to
search databases such as pub egg and PubMed MedlinePlus has a food nutrition page
that contains links to their definitions of health terms nutrition you’re going
to find this is a useful glossary on nutrition terms and yeah it is
relatively basic but there are links in there to vitamins and minerals as well I
also listed here the UNICEF nutrition glossary which is quite a bit more
comprehensive this is actually a 15 page glossary that was developed developed by
UNICEF’s office of research and it was last updated in March of 2012 this is a
really useful guide to print off and keep at your desk if you search for
nutrition resources frequently I’ve included here the FDA nutrition glossary
this is also easy to use and it is downloadable as a PDF document so you
can print that off as well and for our vegetarian friends we have the Academy
of Nutrition and Dietetics but vegetarian glossary of terms this is
particularly useful for unusual vegetarian terms like tempeh you’ll see
links to these resources available in our nutrition jargon section on the
Moodle class hope there’s one I forgot the intro get the International
Dietetics and nutrition terminology I just wanted to put a plug in for this
resource because this is the official reference manual of the Academy of
Nutrition and Dietetics so if you are looking for something more advanced more
in-depth this is the manual you can obtain from your local library the
manuals now also available electronically with a subscription which
which I do not have access to here however an institution near you may have
access this reference manage contains terminology on assessment and monitoring
and evaluation on diagnosis and intervention so it is a little bit more
advanced for those of you that do some more heavy-hitting searching and now I’m
going to turn it over to my colleague Kate to share some information on food
labels ok I’m passing the ball right now great and so from some of our
definitions of nutrition terms we’re going to talk a little bit about food
labels so what I used to have when I taught the
course in person was I had the FDA has a kind of a singing website a YouTube
video that talks about people in a grocery store seeing to each other about
reading the food labels which unfertilized doesn’t work in our system
so but I do want to show you some of the application from the FDA about food
labels so I’m actually going to share my screen so hold on and roll we’ll get to
that and it is a shame that that video isn’t available anymore because I did
see a clip of it maybe a year ago and I thought it was hilarious
oh I thought it was still available I think we have it as a link but Oh
fantastic yeah okay good so you should see how to understand and use the
Nutrition Facts label and I’m going to scroll down a little bit this is an FDA
site that talks all about art the lovely label and great eye breaks it down into
different parts and tells you all that’s included with that and it discusses
serving size and calories and the nutrients and understanding the footnote
usually at the bottom and a percent daily value and things like that but what I mostly want to show you is
there’s going to be changes to the nutrition food label so there’s a
proposal for changing the label and that won’t take effect until sometime in 2018
at the present time that’s the projected date but here’s the comparison between the
two labels so you can notice that the calories are quite large so that that
would be something that kind of leaps out at you what’s different about the
new label besides the bolder type they’ll have the
serving sizes will be updated the calories will be in larger type the
updated daily values will be listed there but Celeste one of the new
features is added sugars will be spelled out and there will be some changes in
the nutrients required an actual amount will be declared for how much say
calcium is in a particular product and there’ll be a new footnote so what what
I find interesting is in terms of serving size they’re going to be a
little bit more realistic so instead of telling somebody that there’s four
servings in a container of ice cream they’re going to show that maybe three
is more realistic and that’s 270 calories similarly with the soda if it’s
12 ounces of oak usually they would say that that’s a serving and a half with
eight ounces and all but now they’ll actually tell you what the twelve ounces
is and similar with the twenty ounces they were a little bit unrealistic that
people weren’t going to be drinking their in it 20 ounces of coke all at
once so there’s a number of QAS and this as well about why the added sugars are
in and like that so I thought that was a useful part of this and let me go back to my page there we
are okay and then I want to go back to the bar slideshow now what we’re going
to do here is we’re actually going to do an exercise looking at a who’s label and
answering some questions and we tried to think of a nice high-tech way of doing
this that it was actually easier if we go ahead and I’ll read you the question
jot down on a piece of paper or on an open window that you have access to the
answers at the food labels if you eat the entire container how many calories
will you eat and the next question is if you will if
you are allowed to eat 60 grams of carbohydrates as a snack how much ice
cream could you have the next one is your doctor advises you to reduce the
amount of saturated fat you usually have 42 grams each day which includes one
serving of ice cream if you stop eating ice cream how many grams of fat would
you be consuming each day they have to do a little bit of math their own you’re
putting it in your own thing first you don’t need to put it in the chat box yet and our fourth question is if you
usually eat 200 and 2500 calories a day 2,500 what percentage of your daily
value of calories would you be eating if you eat one serving okay everybody
those for now our last question is pretend that you’re allergic to the
following substances penicillin peanuts latex gloves and bee stings if it’s safe
for you to eat this ice cream okay somebody says repeat that one I’m hoping
that’s the last one pretend that you’re allergic to the
following substances oh no the fourth one okay the fourth one
was if you eat 2,500 calories a day what percentage of your daily value of
calories would you be eating if you eat one serving and Suisse’s the third
question the third question was your doctor advises you to reduce the amount
of saturated fat usually have 42 grams a day which includes one serving of ice
cream if you stopped eating ice cream how many grams of fat would you be
consuming each day okay so we got through all the questions and we’re
going to go on and talk about what the answers are and so you can score
yourself okay here’s our other questions and here was our last questions about
whether it was safe then here is actually the answers so I’ll give you a
minute or two to look at those actually I’ll go over them with you two so the
answer to number one was actually a thousand for how many if you eat the
whole entire container as Liz is mentioning and then if you’re allowed to
eat sixty grams with the cargo as a snack the answer here is one cup or half
the container and then your number three for your doctor advising that’s where
you do a little bit of math the correct answer is 33 and number
or is if usually the 2500 calories a day the estrin is just 10% and then number
five is it safe no because it has peanut oil okay
so how did you all do let’s see the score is if how many of you got say four
it is six if you want to start putting some of your answers in the chat box
that would be fine now let me stay in the volume bed okay that’s good so I’ll tell you what this
is this actually is a test for literacy that physicians or health professionals
can read to a patient in the office and figure out their literacy level so if
you’ve got zero to one correct it’s a high likelihood that you have limited
literacy if you got two to three correct it indicates the possibility of limited
literacy and if you were between four and six that indicates adequate literacy
so so it looks like lots of people are in the high numbers so that’s good so now I’m going to turn it back to over to
Liz to talk about our next part all right everyone Kate and I are about to
throw a lot of fantastic information at you however I wanted to share with
everyone that we do have a guide available on the Moodle that has links
to all of these resources so please don’t worry about writing down all of
the URLs right now because you’ll have a chance to go back into the course and
pull all of these up within that guide we are going to introduce you to what we
are calling the four key players for nutrition resources all of this info
comes from government resources and for those of you who have done research on
government websites in the past you’ll probably be able to sympathize with us
as far as how these links lead to one another so I’m going to take you on a
tour through some of these and we’re going to be starting with the USDA but
before we dive in I wanted to put in a word for our sponsor
MedlinePlus so MedlinePlus is our flagship consumer health resource
available to the National Library of Medicine and I wanted to put in a quick
plug for this although I’m not going to go in depth just to mention the food and
nutrition topics that are available here the food and nutrition topic section in
MEDLINE plus has more than 100 different pages of information for an example of
some of the health topics listed there you can find information on eating
disorders on body weight antioxidants food allergies and also several great
resources such as a topic on nutrition for seniors this is a great place to
refer friends and family to or to use yourself there’s also a drugs and
supplements tab available on MEDLINE plus which contains many well-known
nutrition supplements such as dandelion and fish oil and garlic while the drugs
and supplements tab here is not comprehensive as some of the commercial
herbal databases you might have used in the past such as natural standard
MEDLINE plus covers the most popular and freely available easy to read records
for consumers most of these records come from NIH s National Center for
Complementary and Integrative Health resource also this information is
available in Spanish as well as English and there are some great videos and
tools here that relate to nutrition such as the calculate your BMI tool and
there’s a food labeling quiz similar to the content that Kaye just presented
here so take a shot go out there to MEDLINE plus and play around their
nutrition topics also I wanted to share that the med
Plus magazine which is available also in English or Spanish contains articles on
nutrition topics on ongoing basis you can subscribe to the MedlinePlus
magazine for free head on out to the website and they will send you a print
copy every month we get one on our break room here in fact I want to start with
the US Department of Agriculture there’s a lot of really great nutrition topic
resources here the USDA has extensive resources and it’s actually an umbrella
or portal for many nutrition resources the USDA consists of a collection of
agencies and offices which are listed on their website under our agency about
USDA the resources that I’m going to highlight here are listed on the USDA
page under topics food nutrition and don’t worry I’ll show you guys what that
looks like some of the things I’m going to highlight here include the Dietary
Guidelines and the choose MyPlate tool nutrition gov which is the USDA’s portal
to government information about food and nutrition I’ll highlight the National
Agricultural library including their food and nutrition information center
which is a resource of the National Agricultural library and I’m going to
share a little information on food composition databases these are useful
to search for nutrient information in food items so let’s get started here you
should see a screenshot here of the USDA’s homepage what I was trying to do
is to show you how best to get to these nutrition topics the USDA is completely
redone the website it looks fantastic so I went in and updated our class here
with all of these new screenshots when you’re on the homepage you can click on
the topics that I have highlighted in the upper left hand corner and select
food and nutrition as we go through here I’m going to share some of these
resources and at the end of this I’m going to pop out and show you where
these are live on my screen all right choose MyPlate let’s begin with that I’m
confident and many of you are already familiar with choose MyPlate which is
the tool created by the USDA to assist the public with developing healthy
eating habits my plate is intended to incorporate dietary recommendation and
explaining food groups to the public let’s go beyond this and look at some of
the less commonly known resources here that you may find useful on the choose
MyPlate website you’ll see a link to super tracker super tracker is a food
and exercise journal online if anyone has used Weight Watchers which I
certainly have in the past or it used the Lucid app or the Fitness Pal app
it’s very similar in the sense that you can track your foods and your X exercise
in this online journal within the super tracker is what’s called a pseudo pedia
get it the puns encyclopedia pseudo pedia I know you’re laughing but you’re
muted in the pseudo pedia you can look up nutrition for over 8,000 foods and
you can compare them side-by-side and add them to the tracker within this
there are also meal plans you can print off sample meal plans that fit all of
the food groups into a 2,000 calorie plan you can make and track progress
towards personal goals so you can go in here and set yourself a goal and work
towards it but I thought this is more interesting to many of you you can
actually set up group challenges so you can create group goals and work towards
it together so if you work in a community
organization or a Senior Center for example and you wanted to organize some
sort of challenge you could do that using super tracker USDA also has some
infographics available and choose MyPlate they had a fantastic infographic
that came out last fall around Thanksgiving which showed you what you
should be eating instead of all that stuffing so perhaps I could have avoided
joining Weight Watchers if I had looked at that infographic back then there are
infographics or high-quality you can post them on Facebook or Twitter or you
can reproduce them and hang them up on your wall there are
also meal planning resources available at USDA
for example they have a resource called healthy eating on a budget and with that
resource comes a cookbook within the cookbook it actually lists the amount it
caught or what it would cost to create that meal per serving USDA’s mixing bowl you’ll see I’ve got a
screen shot of that here contains recipes and menus there is a cookbook
that you can customize you can choose recipes from the USDA mixing bowl put
them in your own virtual cookbook and then print it off a couple of the more
interesting cookbooks they have here include the kids state dinners cookbook
these are the top recipes from future chefs of America there’s also a cookbook
just focused on Latin cooking most of the cookbooks available here are also in
Spanish and this amuses me there are how-to videos available in the
mixing bowl resource as well that show you how to cook some of these meals
coming soon they’ve got a menu builder so I saw that on their website and we’ll
have to come back and see what that looks like a little bit later when it’s
released USDA also has an option on choose MyPlate to view resources by
audience and there are resources available for audiences such as kids and
pregnant women that may interest you if you go to my plate kids place and I’ll
show you where that’s at you’ll see a number of resources that
range from the interesting to the kind of strange games so I had fun playing
with a few of these the food detectives fight back for examples about fighting
bacteria as you could have guessed but there are also almost a trivia game
surrounding choose MyPlate available here some things that you may want to go
out and take a look at are the preschool or growth charts available there’s
resources for parents such as how to deal with picky eaters at home and there
are nutrition resources for pregnancy women such as a pregnancy weight gain
calculator so if you’re ever looking for something like that this is the place
you’re going to go to also I think what many people are looking for when it
comes to USDA our Dietary Guidelines here is the 2015 to 2020 the 8th edition
Dietary Guidelines these guidelines are published every five years you can find
related resources including the executive summary press release question
and answers and previous dietary guidelines on the USDA page I’m going to
show you guys for that Zach I wanted to share on nutrition gov this is another
USDA resource Nutrition gov provides easy access to vetted food and nutrition
information from across the federal government so think of it like a gateway
or a portal to reliable information on nutrition on healthy eating and on food
safety for consumers you can actually sign up for news feed alerts on
nutrition gov to stay current with information across this department and I
wanted to present this resource in part to show you some things that link from
it such as the USDA food composition database which is linked here I’m going
to show you what this looks like in our next slide here because I included a
screenshot so this is the USDA food composition database and you can see
what I looked for here was RVs roast beef sandwich basic classic the
nutrition information in this composition database comes from one of
two sources it comes from the USDA national nutrient database for standard
reference and it comes from the USDA branded food products database what you
can use this for is to search it by food item or food group or in the case of
this example here I searched by the manufacturer’s name RVs to find the
nutrient information for your food items the food composition database also
includes a ground beef calculator and you can calculate the nutrition and
ground beef based on the percentage of fat or lean levels of that beef you can
also pull and export reports from this database on nutrients I promise to share
some information on the USD agricultural library this is one of four national
libraries of the United States and houses one of the world’s largest
collections devoted to agriculture and its related Sciences for those
librarians who are with us a day you may know this already but libraries can
borrow materials from the agricultural library if you need a resource you can
request items from your local library and they will come directly to you related to the Agricultural library I
wanted to share just a little information on the food and nutrient
Information Center so this is located at the National Agricultural library of the
United States Department of Agriculture it’s commonly called the fnic because we
love acronyms in government and this website contains over 2,500 links to
current and reliable nutrition information this is useful for topics
such as fitness and sports nutrition I found records in here for nutrition
for digestive diseases this is also home to the Dietary Reference Intakes
the Dietary Reference Intakes or dris are developed and published by the
Institute of Medicine the DRI is represent the most current scientific
knowledge on nutrient needs of healthy populations and I’ve included a screen
shot for this as well it’s something you might want to go out and play around
with another interesting component of the fnic is their nutrition talk email
list so if you have a real passion for food and nutrition topics and you want
to be on top of this you can join their email list and finally let’s pop out and
explore the USDA so what I’m going to do here is share my screen so bear with me
here alright and now you should be seeing my computer screen and the USDA
homepage so as I mentioned they have completely redone their page very
recently and those are prepping for this class I was kind of scrambling to come
up with some new screenshots when you’re on a USDA you’ll want to go to the
topics page here and select food and nutrition which I already have here you
see this beautiful image of vegetables you may come to learn that I’m not a
huge fan of vegetables so this is inspiring for me when you’re at this
topic I want to point you to the very bottom of the page because this is where
all the links are for some of the resources that I covered today one of
those links was the nutrition gov portal so nutrition gov is where you can access
some of the databases we talked about but it’s also a good place to access
choose MyPlate this is what the choose MyPlate homepage looks like and I wanted
to point out some of the resources that I just highlighted the tracker tools
that are popular topics I’m sorry online tools and it’s called
super tracker and I went in and created myself an account so that I could show
you what it looks like and you’ll see that it expired because I had it all set
up I’m so proud of myself here we go so
this is what it looks like inside the super tracker resource and you can see
that I have my food tracked for today and so far today I’ve had a chocolate
bar I’ve had a cup of chocolate milk although it was reduced fat chocolate
ice cream dove bar and some french fries so this will show you how many calories
you’ve eaten and these aren’t indicated indicating
that I might be out of bounds with a couple of these including saturated fats
it’s going to show you your daily food group targets and where you’re at so of
course there’s a lot of information here and the easiest way to learn more about
this is just to create yourself an account and play around with it a little
bit regarding those infographics those are available under popular topics and
here they are infographics and I believe this Thanksgiving one I told you about
is still here here it is the MyPlate holiday makeover well not a good time to
demonstrate this I guess let’s give that another shot there it is
so it will show you that instead of that pumpkin pie last fall maybe a bowl of
fruit would have been a better idea the audience information I wanted to
show this as well so I showed some information about the kids games if you
go in here you can choose students or children and you choose kids as an
audience you’re going to get to my place kids place and this is where some of
these dating games are there are videos and songs and other activities
surrounding nutrition for kids so if you are a K through 12 instructor which I’ve
had in this class in the past this is a good resource for you as well another
audience type that I demonstrated was pregnant women so if you go to adults
here there’s a section on moms and moms to be and this has some very useful
information on the nutritional needs for pregnant moms and this is also the home
of the pregnancy weight guide so that’s available here as well all right moving
on I promise to show you some information about dietary guidance I’m
going to pop back to the USDA homepage and will show you where I’m at one more
time here so again I’m on the home page under the food and nutrition topics at
the bottom of the page here you’re going to see the Dietary Guidelines this is
going to bring you to drumroll the Dietary Guidelines for Americans that I
showed in my screenshot in here you can access the most recent
addition which is right here 2015 to 2020
I mentioned the food composition database as well and this is something
that is available through the nutrition Gulf portal but you’ll also see it
linked in many other places on the USDA page this is what the homepage for it
looks like and you’ll see a link here to the ground beef calculator if you start
your search here you’re going to get to a page that looks
just like this and again I demonstrated a search in which I went to manufacturer
and I was looking for Arby’s we’ve got an Arby’s nearby which I need to stop
eating at and if you click on that you’re going to see the nutrition
information here and you can download this into an Excel format or into a PDF
format there are also some tools in here to compare foods and to produce reports
such as the nutrient list tool here and there is again that ground beef I’m
going to like you’ve highlighted I just think it’s kind of interesting that
that’s available I told you a little bit about the food and nutrition information
center so I wanted to show you what that looks like live on my computer as well
this is it here this is a great place also for news about food topics and
again this resource is curated by the agricultural library you can contact
them and there is that link to the email list on here as well
Oh although oh there it is i’ma say I don’t see you guys right here sign up
for the nutrition talk email list so that may be of interest to you I also
wanted to show you a little bit of information about the food safety
inspection service and I’m bringing you out to this part of the USDA website
really for one reason and asked to show you some of information for consumers
available here so I have had some questions in my library in the past
about caring for food when are things done how to store things in the
refrigerator or the freezer there’s some great resources here
and what I want to show you is the get answers section reason being there is a
USDA meat and poultry hotline so I want to point this out my My partner and I
have a lot of arguments about when something’s done or how long something
can be in our freezer we actually just went to this as a department when we
clean up our freezer upstairs but you can actually call them up you can call
them up on the meat and poultry hotline and ask questions there are great food
safety fact sheets available here there are also resources kids and teens if you
work in that environment but some of the great stuff on here are tables like this
which show you how long you can freeze certain foods and allow them to be safe
so all right I’m going to stop my screen sharing here I want to remind you that
these resources are available on our guide so don’t sweat it and I’m going to
pass the presenter ball back to Kay great thanks Liz and the USDA is really
one of the most major of the resources that we’re covering today so the next
one we’re going to talk about is the US Food and Drug Administration and this is
the one that had a lot of information about the food labels and food safety
and recalls the FDA is really charged with regulating food production in
keeping food safe part of the USDA deals with recalls on meat poultry and egg
products but the FDA is the one that recalls food as well as pet food and
animal feeds all other foods and the pet and animal feeds and so we’re going to
highlight some of these resources and then outbreaks is another area that the
FDA is very concerned with so here we have the FDA’s homepage specifically for
food it’s one of the tabs if you just go straight to the FDA’s site so they have
links to the recalls and outbreaks and emergencies foodborne illnesses and
contaminants the dietary supplements food defense and popular topics and
resources specifically for you and then they go into the different audiences
such as consumers the industry and health educators and teachers and others in addition the FDA is interested in
food the dietary supplements and what we’ve
got here is you all know that the FDA is very concerned about drugs but the
dietary supplements don’t meet the same criteria as the drug regulation so there
is some different things regarding those based on the dietary supplement health
and education Act of 1994 and then of course
our food labeling guide they are the ones that are in charge of that and
here’s a little bit of the sample page with our Nutrition Facts listed and then
for food safety the FDA has a lot of information for teachers and educators
as well with a lot of publications that they put out it may be of interest to and then what I found really interesting
is they have an education resource library in their consumer area and so
that’s put out by the Center for Food Safety and applied nutrition and here on
our next page is some of the list of topics that they cover and many of these
topics are available in Spanish and maybe a few other languages as well so
now we’re going to go out and explore the FDA and while okay is getting her
screen shared with us I just wanted to point out something when she had gone
through the education resource library just remember you can actually order
publications there so you can order brochures on intended for consumers
through that resource so you could work in an area where you might use some of
those remember you can go out and order them okay so here’s the FDA’s homepage
and then we’re going to go right over to the tab for food and it will show us
here again those different areas that we were looking at on the screen before and
then down below it will show resources for you the different groups consumers
the health educators food safety food industry and of course on the side the
right side are the tabs are for popular topics and Stacy
foods businesses how to start a food business and then contact FDA
information so let’s see we’re going to go over to the that recalls and
outbreaks and again there’s just some information here there’s even a food
safety widget that you can get and put on your phone and then let’s go over to
the consumer part and we’re going to go to that education resource library and
we’ll check on allergies and so they have a handout in both in Spanish as
well as English and then here’s food allergies what you need to know and also
some and videos on things that it I urge you to go and explore it
a bit on your own so we’ll go back to our slideshow and we are coming up to
the next section here folks which is on the Center for Disease Control and
Prevention so you may not automatically think nutrition when you think CDC
however CDC has a nutrition page with an A to Z topics index like all of these
government resources sometimes the links listed here will take you to other sites
like those we already covered in the FDA and USDA however I want to show you a
few things that I find particularly useful on the CDC page including the
Healthy Living section and a couple of pilot a couple of other sections as well the CDC has a list of topics under
healthy living that contained some specifically related to nutrition and
you’ll see in the screenshot here I tried to highlight those but we will
also go out and take a look live the CDC has information on food safety as well
for example they have a directory of foodborne illnesses available
information on recent foodborne illness outbreaks information on food safety
there is a section called challenges in food safety which I think you can see in
my screen shot here if on the lower right hand corner there and this will
include some information on things like antibiotic resistance and raw milk this
is an interesting section on kind of emerging challenges in food safety also
available are food safety infographics including one highlighting grilling
safety for the summer and some instructions and infographics on things
like cleaning out your fridge how to do this properly which I should probably
review because last time I really didn’t give it my all
kay did mention that food safety recalls of widget I wanted to show you guys what
that looks like this is also links to the CDC page and I’ve included a
screenshot of it here that’s what you see on the right-hand side of your page
this is something that you can embed in other resources such as your website or
if you’re a library and you can put it into your library guide it looks really
snazzy and doesn’t take any time at all to set up so I just wanted to point that
out CDC also have us has a section on current features which often features
nutrition related topics for example around the holidays they had a topic
called holiday food safety during pregnancy and gently’ related to
nutrition CDC does have a section on healthy weight which does include some
topics on nutrition here for example there are some BMI tools for adults and
children available here a nail self statistics on things related to
nutrition such as obesity there are also resources for parents here that include
some healthy eating tips and resources again for those picky eaters that you
may have at home there are also some recipes here as well
similar to the recipes available on USDA’s mixing bowl although I think
that’s a bit more comprehensive I’m sharing here a screenshot a CDC’s
nutrition page which is what I want you to primarily be looking at when you go
out to this resource online following this webinar which I know you will this
is where you will find data and statistics surrounding nutrition topics
for example the amount of water recommended daily fact sheets about
sugar data on breastfeeding one of my favorites that I like to use an example
here which is a report on fruit and vegetables consumed by state so it’s
that granular you can go down and take a look by state so when you think
nutrition statistics where should I go I want you to think
let’s check CDC first there’s a lot of information available here this is also
a great homepage for guidelines and you’ll see on my screenshot there
there’s a section called strategies and guidelines the type of guidelines
available here includes food service guidelines for institutions if you work
in a kitchen at a school for example this is that where you go to see that
guide line their school health guidelines located here and there are
guidelines surrounding state and local nutrition initiatives CDC is also where
you going to find some official reports and publications on nutrition topics
primarily the CDC vital science reports some of these reports are titled
hospital actions affect breastfeeding reducing sodium and children’s diets and
progress on childhood obesity and I want to show you where those are at finally
the last thing I wanted to highlight regarding CDC is their healthy schools
page this contains publications and reports surrounding nutrition such as
the sugar sweetened beverage intake among high school students that’s a
report you can pull there with statistics there is a page on food
allergy which also includes statistics and reports an example of a couple of
those food allergy reports are voluntary guidelines for managing food allergies
and schools and early care and education programs or there’s the great food
allergy guidelines fa Q’s there is you’ll see on the right hand of my page
is a screenshot this is the toolkit for managing food allergies in schools this
is something that we have had people request at our library before and it’s
nice to know where that’s at so I know we only have a few minutes left here but
I’m going to take you out to do a quick peek at the CDC so bear with me I am
sharing my screen and here we go all right so this is what the CDC homepage
looks like I want to show you where these resources are they are located in
a healthy living and I would encourage you to just click on more to view that
page that I had in my presentation this is the healthy living section which
includes some of these topics such as nutrition so I’m going to show you what
this looks like here we are this is the data and statistics that I had shared
and if you go into this topic you’re going to see for example that state
indicator report on fruits and vegetables
data trends and maps information on breastfeeding drinking water there are a
ton of statistics available in here strategies and guidelines resources and
publications this is where you’ll see those CDC vital signs reports such as
reducing sodium in children’s diets you can actually go to a whole list of the
CDC vital signs available here this is also where you’re going to find good
guidelines such as the Food Service guidelines and a state indicator and
report cards this data may become in really useful one day so make sure you
book market or better yet keep a hold of our guide finally I shared some
information on healthy schools so I wanted to show you guys what the CDC
healthy schools page looks like you can they actually have a URL just for this
healthy schools and the information were we discussed here was under nutrition so
if you click on this nutrition topic you are going to get a whole bunch of
information on nutrition within schools so there are resources here for both
staff family and students I think you’ll find a lot of useful tools here all
right I’m going to stop my screen share here and I’m going to take us back to
our presentation for just a little bit more information from Kay and then we
will let you guys go all right today I’m going to go ahead and make you the
presenter great so we’re almost wrapped we’re almost
time to wrap up and the next one we’re talking about is the Academy of
Nutrition and Dietetics which shouldn’t take us too long at all that used to be
known as the American Dietetic Association they have a website called
eat write org and they are the largest organization of food and nutrition
professionals and one of the their claim to fame is that they have a find an
expert part which will demo in a minute or two and they’re also the ones that
bring you that vegetarian glossary of terms so here off of their homepage is
the find an expert and we can go here and find a registered dietitian
nutritionist so now we’re going to quickly go and explore eat write guide
org and go from there here it is loaded this is the Academy of Nutrition and
Dietetics they have the find an expert right up on the top right they also have
their latest articles another link to find an expert special topics they also
have a video on what are the changes to the Nutrition Facts label and some more
information and of course all their social media tools so we’ll go over to
the find and expert and of course we have a disclaimer and then we’ll go
ahead and search by zip code and we’ll do 902 104 Beverly Hills and we’ll see
what they tell us and so here we get to see the location of probably how far
away they are from where I am here at UCLA and then also
a geographic description of where people are in the map and here with these
details will show their their general nutrition areas similarly you can search
by expertise and you can look for something like diabetes as an area and
then it shows this which is kind of quite spread out and maybe not that not
that useful in terms of how many miles are telling me a way there’s a person
who focuses on diabetes so that’s it for the eat right or is a the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics okay so we’re
coming down to the wire to summarize we’ve covered a lot on the USDA one of
the major areas for food and nutrition information we’ve talked about the FDA
who does a lot of regulations recalls on outbreaks and things we’ve talked about
the CDC the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and we talked about the
Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics these are kind of the major resources that we
wanted to share with you today so we will be sharing more in future sessions
