Educating children about the levels of caffeine in various energy drinks, sodas and coffee at a young age could help curb consumption, experts said.

A clinical trial adds to the evidence that energy drinks may be bad for your heart. Results of the study were presented recently at a meeting of the American Heart Association. The study enrolled 27 healthy volunteers between the ages of 18 and 40. Subjects drank either two cans of an energy drink, an equivalent volume of a drink containing panax ginseng or a placebo beverage once a day, every six days, for three weeks.
Interagency Community on Health and Nutrition Research
The Interagency Committee on Human Nutrition Research (ICHNR) has released the first Nutrition Research Roadmap designed to guide federal nutrition research. The 2016-2021 National Nutrition Research Roadmap encourages an increased focus on research that can lead to more individualized advice for promoting health and preventing disease.

Many orthopaedic patients are eager to track and improve their health and progress before, during and after treatment. A digital fitness device, technology already owned by one in 10 Americans, provides a unique opportunity for patients to monitor their activity levels, medication use, weight, sleep patterns, rehabilitation progress and other personal health data, ultimately empowering them to improve clinical outcomes, according to a new study.

Peanut allergy prevention achieved from early peanut consumption in at-risk infants persists after a one-year period of avoiding peanut, a clinical trial has found. The LEAP-ON clinical trial was conducted by the Immune Tolerance Network. The results were published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
One in six children aged 8 to 14 years in Australia report going to school or bed hungry, according to a new report by the Australian Child Wellbeing Project. These children are up to three times more likely to report two or more health complaints per week such as headaches, stomach aches, sleeplessness, feeling low, nervous or irritable. They are also more likely to be bullied regularly.

Risk of heart disease and diabetes may be lowered by a diet higher in a lipid found in grapeseed and other oils, but not in olive oil, a new study suggests. Researchers at The Ohio State University found that men and women with higher linoleic acid levels tended to have less heart-threatening fat nestled between their vital organs, more lean body mass and less inflammation.
Nutrition scientists at Tufts University have introduced an updated MyPlate for Older Adults icon. The updated icon emphasizes the nutritional needs of older adults in a framework of the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Research suggests that practicing mindfulness — or taking the time to bring awareness to present-moment experiences with an open attitude of curiosity and non-judgment — can be effective in allowing us to make more thoughtful food choices and recognize when we are hungry, satisfied or full.

A new study demonstrates how even a short break from certain kinds of makeup, shampoos and lotions can lead to a significant drop in levels of hormone-disrupting chemicals in the body. The results, published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, came from a study of 100 Latina teenagers participating in the Health and Environmental Research on Makeup of Salinas Adolescents study.

Australian scientists have shown that brown fat — a special type of fat that burns energy to produce heat — may also help to keep blood sugar steady in adults. Researchers at Sydney's Garvan Institute of Medical Research measured brown fat activity and blood glucose continuously in real time in study participants, and found that individuals with more brown fat had smaller fluctuations in blood sugar.

Schools across the United States purchased $789 million in local foods from farmers, ranchers, fishermen and food processors and manufacturers in school year 2013-2014, according to results from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm to School Census.

Even as the economy improves, many Americans continue to need a helping hand putting food on the table. Many of our most vulnerable low income citizens still have trouble obtaining meaningful jobs due to barriers such as lack of education, transportation or child care. Outreach helps people understand whether they may be eligible for USDA's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and how it can supplement their current food budget.
National Dairy Council
The Childhood Health and Nutrition Research Conference hosted together by the USDA Arkansas Children's Nutrition Center and National Dairy Council convened cross-disciplinary experts in childhood health and nutrition to examine the current state of nutrition science from bench-top to application.
