This is a picture of me with Dr. Siwei Xu, Director, China's National Agricultural Library and the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior. I was happy to see that we have hard copies of the journal in their library.

The FDA has unveiled the first changes to the Nutrition Facts Label in over two decades. Learn what's changed, what's stayed the same and how health professionals can use this new label to nudge clients toward healthy eating habits.
A family-based, holistic approach to improving nutrition and increasing physical activity among children promoted positive self-perception, which may have decreased the burden of depression, anxiety and low self-esteem many obese youth face, according to data published in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior.
Did you know that in 2015 only 15 percent of the systematic reviews submitted to JNEB were accepted?
Are you planning to publish part of your literature review for your dissertation?
This sessions allows you the chance to put focused time in on your research project, giving you a great head start on a completed review.
How to Conduct and Write Systematic Reviews for the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior is being offered as a pre-conference workshop from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, July 30 preceding the Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior Annual Conference. Cost is $50 for students, $90 for SNEB members and $125 for non-members with breakfast and lunch included. Workshop attendees do not have to be registered for the annual conference.
Workshop is being conducted by Julie Reeder, PhD, MPH, CHES, State of Oregon WIC Program, Marla Reicks, PhD, RD, University of Minnesota; and Megan Kocher, MLIS, University of Minnesota Libraries.
The presenters will go through their own systematic review process in preparation for the workshop so they can candidly share their own experiences and how they dealt with or avoided the common pitfalls that come with conducting a review. Participants will be expected to complete a brief homework assignment prior to attending to optimize learning experiences during the workshop. Participants will actively engage in the steps of a systematic review process in a group-supported setting using a pre-selected topic of their choosing.
After the workshop participants will be able to:
Additional details are online here.
- Clearly differentiate a systematic review from other literature review approaches.
- Perfect the problem statement, one of the key steps to a successful systematic review.
- More effectively identify and collaborate with a research librarian/information specialist to increase the efficiency of the search process.
- Critically evaluate search results.
- Craft a succinct yet comprehensive report of review findings.
- Market the systematic review after publication.

Researchers have found that some Asian-Americans are more likely to hunger for carbohydrates and unhealthy foods than other Asian-Americans — and the reason appears to be genetic. UCLA researchers have discovered that certain Asian-American college students have a genetic variation that predisposes them to food addiction. Their study was published in the Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
JAMA via EuerkAlert!
The prevalence of obesity in 2013-2014 was 35 percent among men and 40 percent among women, and between 2005 and 2014, there was an increase in prevalence among women, but not men, according to a study appearing in the June 7 issue of JAMA. Between 1980 and 2000, the prevalence of obesity increased significantly among adult men and women in the United States.
Formula-fed infants may be at greater risk for overfeeding and rapid weight gain. Different size bottles are used for feeding infants, although little is known about whether bottle size is related to weight gain in bottle-fed infants.
A new report finds that malnutrition remains pervasive globally and has not received the attention it deserves. The 2016 Global Nutrition Report (GNR) was recently launched in seven major capitals across the world, including Washington, D.C.
