Family Nutrition Tips- USDA announces new team for 2010 MyPyramid

Posted on Nov 17, 2008 by Maggie LaBarbera

The USDA has announced that they have formed a new team, lead by Brian Wansink PhD, to develop the 2010 Food Guidelines.I met Brian Wansink when Nourish Interactive received recognition from the USDA, back in June 2008 for our work promoting nutrition education. He is a very dynamic, passionate man and I was really impressed with his commitment to creating a slimmer, healthier America.He has written several books on how cues trigger us to eat more. I was reading about some of his experiments and was fascinated at the results. He rigged a soup bowl to continually fill as it was being consumed. The result: 75% more soup was consumed. Bottomline, there are many cues purposely designed to get us to eat larger portions, fattier foods and generally be less healthy. I developed a few Family Nutrition Health Tips that you can print up that gives short quick tips on

  • eating out with the kids- how to have a healthier experience
  • getting the family to be more active
  • specific suggestions on improving your family's overall nutrition status.
We will continually add to this resource. Check them out, they are colorful and designed to look and be positive and fun as you work with your children to change habits. Remember, each step no matter how small is a step towards a healthier child. Be patient and have with your kids!Just like everything on our site, it is free. We will soon be posting our spanish version.
