SNEB Division "Hot Topics" Conference Call — Sharing Research: Issues in Abstract Development, Review and Presentation
1 p.m. ET Thursday, Nov. 20 | Free to SNEB members — click to register
Tis abstract writing season! Even though SNEB provides detailed descriptions of abstract requirements and reviewing standards, each year we receive abstracts of varying writing and research quality. There are times when reviewers must send abstracts back to authors for revision or rejection. In this hot topics call, society members are invited to discuss abstract standards and debate expectations with a panel of abstract reviewers. This meeting is for everyone — those who have submitted abstracts dozens of times before, as well as first time submitters.

JNEB IN THE NEWS


Fill me up: High protein diet improves satiety without sugar crash
Medical Daily
Have you ever noticed there are foods, like eggs, that make you feel fuller for longer but others like white bread that just increase your appetite even more? Not all foods are created equal when it comes to satisfying your hunger. A high protein diet is seen as the ideal solution to increasing fullness and reducing hunger throughout the whole day and well into the evening hours. A 2013 study published in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior found that 43 percent of women surveyed are using the practice of eating more protein to prevent weight gain, and therefore showed more weight loss.

Who makes a healthier lunch: Mom or the school cafeteria?
CBS News
Lunches packed at home are generally not as nutritious as school lunches, a new study shows. Researchers compared more than 750 school meals with more than 560 packed meals given to pre-K and kindergarten students in three schools, analyzing them for nutritional value over five days. The packed lunches had more fat, and included more desserts and sugary drinks than the school lunches did, the researchers found.

Nutritional Comparison of Packed and School Lunches in Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten Children following the Implementation of the 2012-2013 National School Lunch Program Standards
Authors: Alisha R. Farris, MS, RD, Sarah Misyak, Ph.D., Kiyah J. Duffey, Ph.D., George C. Davis, Ph.D., Kathy Hosig, Ph.D., RD, Naama Atzaba-Poria, Ph.D., Mary M. McFerren, EdD, and Elena L. Serrano, Ph.D.
Interview: In the first study comparing packed lunches to National School Lunch Program (NSLP) lunches, researchers from Virginia Tech found that school lunches have greater nutritional quality. Findings suggest that nutrition education programs targeting children, parents, and perhaps even school policy around packed lunches should be encouraged to promote healthier options within packed lunches.

IN THE HEADLINES


Family & Consumer Sciences Day
AAFCS
For the inaugural Family & Consumer Sciences Day, the American Association of Family & Consumer Sciences will be asking families to prepare and eat a healthy meal together on Dec. 3. Dec. 3 was chosen to honor AAFCS founder Ellen Swallow Richards, the first woman graduate of MIT. Dec. 3 is her birthday.

On the website, you'll find everything you need to get involved and spread the word (like the infographic at left)! Our goal is to reach 200,000 families, so please share this campaign widely. Start by committing to "Dining In" on Dec. 3.

Donating wholesome unsold food
Department of Agriculture
Fourteen percent of American households found it difficult to put food on the table at some time in 2013, yet 31 percent of food at the consumer and retail level goes uneaten (USDA ERS). Of the estimated 133 billion pounds of food that goes uneaten every year, much of it is perfectly safe and nutritious and could have been donated to hunger relief organizations to feed hungry people. Sadly, much of this perfectly good food ends up in landfills.
