Sustainable Dietary Guidance: Learning from the Past, Understanding the Present, Planning for the Future
Wednesday, May 31 | 1 - 2 p.m. EDT
Webinar sponsored by the Division of Sustainable Food Systems.
Speakers: Pamela A. Koch, EdD, RD, Laurie M. Tisch Center for Food, Columbia University; Miriam E. Nelson, PhD, University of New Hampshire, Tufts University; Angela M. Tagtow, MS, RD, LD, Minnesota Institute for Sustainable Agriculture, University of Minnesota College of Food, Agriculture and Natural Resource Services
To achieve nutrition for all, food and nutrition professionals need an understanding of ecological sustainability issues such as biodiversity, soil health, loss of farmland, climate change, and pollution, and how these impact what, where, when, and how we grow food and achieve nutrition security. This dynamic conversation examines, "What is dietary guidance for ecological sustainability?" and "Why is it important for nutrition professionals?" Using the attention sustainability received during the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans as a launching point, this session explores how ecological sustainability issues can be incorporated into nutrition education and local, state and federal nutrition policy.
- Recognize the importance of ecological sustainability and healthy eating patterns and the role of ecological sustainability in national dietary guidance
- Describe how we can learn from the attempt to integrate ecological sustainability in the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans
- Identify actions that food and nutrition professionals can take to incorporate ecological sustainability into their practice and how to support sustainability in local, state and Federal nutrition policies

Interview: Rachel E. Scherr, PhD, discusses the dramatic decrease in BMI, although unexpected in the short time frame of the intervention. This demonstrated that the SHCP was effective due to positive health messages and reinforcing nutrition concepts throughout the school and home environments.
The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) monitored indicators of nutrition and health for the past 50 years, and trends have been identified using the multitude of sequential, cross-sectional reports. First, the quantity and variety of food available to Americans has increased over time, leading to considerable changes in dietary intakes.

Imagine you are a high school student faced with a drab cafeteria, institutional tables with benches, and one serving window for 4,000 students to get lunch from. Add in long lines and hurried meal time. But what would happen if the cafeteria layout and design was renovated to mirror the cool cafe hangouts seen in movies, malls, and other places teens admire?

Food Safety News
Food waste is sickening. The amount of safe and nutritious food that is wasted each year in the United States is astonishing: An estimated 40 percent of the U.S. food supply is never consumed. Yet, approximately 49 million Americans are suffering from hunger.
