IN THE HEADLINES


How Cap'n Crunch's gaze is influencing your purchasing
Newswise
Brian Wansink, director of Cornell's Food and Brand Lab, and post-doctoral lab researcher Aner Tal, are releasing a new study today published in the Journal of Environment and Behavior that discovered consumers are 16 percent more likely to trust a brand of cereal when the characters on the boxes on the supermarket shelves look them straight in the eye. Not surprisingly, the study also found that the gaze of characters on children's cereal boxes is at a downward, 9.6-degree angle, while characters on adult cereal boxes look almost straight ahead.

EuerkAlert!
Customers are more likely to frequent restaurants that provide both healthful foods and nutrition information, according to researchers at Penn State and the University of Tennessee. The researchers found that when study participants were presented with a scenario in which a restaurant gave nutrition information and served healthful food options, the participants were significantly more likely to perceive that the restaurant was socially responsible.

EuerkAlert!
Eating at least seven daily portions of fruit and vegetables may confer the best chance of staving off death from any cause, indicates research published online in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health. And vegetables may pack more of a protective punch than fruit, the data suggest.

Study finds secret to cutting sugary drink use by teens
EuerkAlert!
A new study shows that teenagers can be persuaded to cut back on sugary soft drinks — especially with a little help from their friends. A 30-day challenge encouraging teens to reduce sugar-sweetened drink use lowered their overall consumption substantially and increased by two-thirds the percentage of high school students who shunned sugary drinks altogether.

2 weeks left to comment about school wellness policies
Department of Agriculture
Two weeks left! Now is your chance to comment on the proposed rule for local school wellness policies, and help us spread the word.

On Feb. 26, USDA Food and Nutrition Service proposed regulations to create a framework and guidelines for written local school wellness policies. This proposed rule detailed guidelines for what needs to be included in local school wellness policies in areas such as setting goals for nutrition education and physical activity, informing parents about policy content and implementation, and periodically assessing progress and sharing updates as appropriate. Parents, students, representatives of the school food authority, teachers of physical education, school health professionals, the school board, school administrators and the general public must be permitted to participate in the wellness policy process as a part of the wellness policy team. The proposed rule would also require Local Educational Agencies, as part of the wellness policy, to implement policies for the marketing of foods and beverages on the school campus during the school day that are consistent with the Smart Snacks in Schools nutrition standards.

This is your chance to weigh in!
USDA is seeking comments on the proposed rule. The formal 60-day comment period is open through April 28. Feedback from students, parents, school food staff, school administrators, state agencies and other interested parties is an important part of the rule-making process.

Please help spread the word
about this proposed rule and encourage comments through the formal comment process.

Read a summary of the proposed rule


Find the proposed rule online and the link to comment
