Let’s Re-do Lunch!
The food aisles are stocked to the rafters with lunchbox treats — individually packed granola bars, pudding cups, juice boxes.

Mission Nutrition: Eat Your Veggies!
While nutrition experts have yet to agree on what constitutes the perfect diet, there is no doubt that vegetables play a vital role in promoting good health.

Packing the “Right Stuff”

Go ahead and breastfeed! The law’s on your side
Just as your plate arrives, you discreetly raise your T-shirt and put your baby to your breast. Your baby is happy, you’re happy.

(Food) Survival for the first weeks
The last thing a new mom wants to think about is preparing a nutritious meal for herself. Not that she doesn’t want to eat healthy food. It’s just so tiring to think about the actual completion of the task. First there’s the running to the market, then the buying of healthy foods, dealing with checkout, the schlep home and finally, cooking and eating. Just considering the prospect is nap-inducing. (read the story...)

New Food Guidelines Issued - Marked Increase in Childhood Food Allergies Cited
The new guidelines When and what to feed babies is an evolving science, and the guidelines are frequently changing as we learn more about infants’ nutritional requirements, how to best establish healthy eating habits, and how to prevent food allergies.

Feeding Your Young Athlete
If your child plays sports, whether in middle or high school, you probably have a hard time keeping your pantry stocked. Active kids eat more, or at least they should, although many parents aren't sure just what constitutes good nutrition for young athletes. It's no wonder the concept is confusing, says Sarah Short, Ph.D., Ed.D, a registered dietitian and sports nutritionist. "It's not easy to generalize," she says. Kids in early puberty and adolescence come in a stunning array of shapes, sizes, and maturity levels, and when you factor in gender differences and athletic activity, assessing your child's nutritional needs can seem overwhelming… (read the story...)

Reaching for that “Edge”Westchester teens’ use of supplements dangerously high
Remember when it was not if you won or lost, but how you played the game? It’s a whole new ball game these days, and one with a whole new language: anabolic steroids, androstenedione, creatine, diuretics, ergogenic substances, and nutritional supplements — all used to improve young athletes’ performances.
