Weight Watchers (or WW as they now prefer to be referred to) recently introduced a weight loss app for youth (free download and 7-day trial, then there is a cost for coaching) @ https://kurbo.com/finding-the-right-weight-loss-program-for-your-teenager/ based on Stanford University's teen weight loss program using an evidence base in its development (traffic light system). Note: the website markets it as a teen program yet it is being marketed to children as young as 8. The result? A LOT of pushback. Here's some background and responses ...

Doctor Mike: "Hey, guys! Terms like 'all natural' and 'low fat' are often slapped on food that may not be healthy for you. Being a savvy consumer these days means not always taking a food labels claim at face value. In today’s video, I cover the top 10 misleading nutrition labels claims and what they actually mean for your health."
Karen Chapman-Novakofski, Ph.D., RDN, JNEB Editor-in-Chief
Karen Chapman-Novakofski writes: "Although nutrition education is important across the lifespan, research funding seems to be more focused on childhood, specifically childhood obesity. Certainly, no one can argue that this is not critical since childhood obesity can diminish health and quality of life for decades beyond those early years. However, since this issue includes our position paper on older adults, I wanted to draw some attention to the opposite end of the lifespan."

USDA Food and Nutrition Service via YouTube
On Aug. 8, the USDA Food and Nutrition Service celebrated 50 remarkable years of service dedicated to improving the lives of Americans through our nation's vital nutrition programs. It was a special moment to reflect on how these valuable programs, and the laws that authorize and shape them, have grown and evolved to meet changing food and nutrition needs, always with an eye to good stewardship. You can watch the webcast online to learn more about this agency's robust history.
Child Nutrtion Sharing Site
Team Nutrition's Healthy Meals Resource System (HMRS) has moved to the Institute of Child Nutrition (ICN) and is now part of the ICN's new Child Nutrition Sharing Site. The ICN's Child Nutrition Sharing Site (CNSS) is an online resource center providing Child Nutrition Programs with a means for sharing valuable resources related to program operations. The CNSS will give child nutrition professionals a one-stop shop to access high-quality resources and training materials in the child nutrition community that support current Federal regulations, policies, and guidance.
Phase One — Now Available!
Phase one of the CNSS gives child nutrition professionals access to resources and trainings that were housed on the now discontinued Healthy Meals Resource System. You can access current resources at https://theicn.org/cnss.
Phase Two — Share your Resources!
Phase two of the CNSS will allow State agencies, allied organizations, and industry partners to submit their free child nutrition program resources and training materials for inclusion on the CNSS using an online form. ICN will review submitted resources to ensure quality and appropriateness of all resources housed in the CNSS. Phase two will roll out in the Fall of 2019. Stay tuned for more information!
