SNE and F&NSPEC listserv members: **Apologies for any duplicate messages**
I am hoping some of you may be able to point me toward information I think must be out there...but that I haven't been able to find!
I've seen both "Food Inc." and "Fresh" - two recently released documentaries about the contemporary U.S. food system, with emphasis on serious problems created by factory farms and other practices common within large-scale agricultural operations. These are powerful and thought-provoking films, and they put forth - visually and orally - some critical issues (health, ethical, environmental to name just a few) for all to consider.
That said, I am also interested in viewers who may question some of the perspectives/facts shared in either or both of these films. As I said above, I know the films raise critical issues, but I sense that some of the films' generalities might be overstated. (Admittedly, I may be wrong in this, but I'd like a broader foundation for evaluation than just my own inadequate knowledge base!)
Thanks, in advance, for any insights you could share with me and/or any references/websites/etc. you could point me toward.

> On March 7, 2013, the Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA), which works with the private sector and its honorary chairwoman First Lady Michelle Obama to solve the nation’s childhood obesity crisis, will bring together more than 1,000 leaders from public, private and non-profit organizations, all committed to solving the childhood obesity crisis in America. This year's agenda will feature a new program - the End Childhood Obesity Innovation Challenge - and we need your ideas.
> It seems there’s no shortage of great ideas people offer us to help end the childhood obesity epidemic and we love them all. We know great ideas can come from anywhere, so now we’re giving everyone a chance to turn their great idea into a solution. The End Childhood Obesity Innovation Challenge is an online contest that is asking anyone - parents, kids, organizations, businesses, teachers, whoever - to submit a unique idea that could help in the fight against childhood obesity. The challenge is meant to solicit ideas – not business plans. Three finalists will be flown to DC to pitch the Summit attendees and a panel of judges – live – during the opening plenary.
> The winner will receive $10,000, expert support from management consultants, entrepreneurs and marketing/PR professionals, and a meeting with Fortune Magazine – all to help them turn their idea into a reality.
> Want to learn more? Click here [http://on.fb.me/SdQSnS] for all the details – and to submit an idea of your own! The submission deadline is November 16, 2012.

Does anyone have any information about the impact of raw cider vinegar on
cholesterol/lipid profile? I have been told by a family member that this
was the only change that she made (taking a small amount 3 times/day) and
her levels dropped considerably. Thanks.

JNEB would like to share the November/December issue's press release (below) titled "A B C - 1 2 3, but What Is Good for Me? - New study highlights how child care providers can be part of the solution for childhood obesity" with your publication. This study from Washington State University called the ENHANCE project, looked at 72 child care providers from 45 child care settings before and after a three-hour wellness retreat, , and focused on feeding relationships, child nutrition education, and family communication. Based on observations and a survey before and one year after the wellness retreat, researchers found child care providers' beliefs related to children's healthful eating and feeding affected classroom practices. For example, if a child care provider felt confident in their ability to provide nutrition information, then they increased their nutrition education efforts and communicated more frequently with families about healthful eating and child feeding.
So why is this important for childcare? Dr. Lanigan says, "The potential for early learning professionals to contribute to the childhood obesity solution has yet to be fully realized. Incorporating child feeding training into state child care licensure, national certification, or as a requirement for participation in the Child & Adult Care Food Program are potential mechanisms for improving the child care feeding environment and addressing the childhood obesity epidemic."
We hope that you will share these findings with others. For other content in JNEB, please visit http://www.jneb.org/current. In addition, a podcast interview about this research is attached to this email and available at http://www.jneb.org/content/podcast.

A B C - 1 2 3, but What Is Good for Me?
New study highlights how child care providers can be part of the solution for childhood obesity
Philadelphia, PA, November 8, 2012 - The National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys revealed that over 21% of children 2 to 5 years old were considered overweight or obese. Child care settings can serve as a platform to teach children about nutrition in our fight against childhood obesity, as nearly 50% of children in the United States under age 5 are enrolled in child care. In a new study released in the November/December 2012 issue of the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, training child care providers about their role in children's healthful eating is an essential component of child care-based obesity prevention initiatives.
This study from Washington State University called the ENHANCE project, looked at 72 child care providers from 45 child care settings before and after a three-hour wellness retreat, , and focused on feeding relationships, child nutrition education, and family communication. This forum provided tools and skills for providers to succeed in incorporating obesity prevention and healthful eating promotion within their child care setting. Based on observations and a survey before and one year after the wellness retreat, researchers found child care providers' beliefs related to children's healthful eating and feeding affected classroom practices. For example, if a child care provider felt confident in their ability to provide nutrition information, then they increased their nutrition education efforts and communicated more frequently with families about healthful eating and child feeding.
Jane D. Lanigan, PhD, the lead investigator from Washington State University, says, "Teachers did feel empowered to shape children's food preferences and employed a variety of evidence-based practices during feeding. However, they felt uncertain about managing children's intake or addressing child weight issues with parents. The current study suggests that the child care feeding environment can be improved by helping providers understand the negative consequences associated with feeding practices such as pressuring a child to eat, restricting highly palatable food, and using rewards to encourage children to eat healthful food or increase consumption."
So why is this important for childcare? Dr. Lanigan says, "The potential for early learning professionals to contribute to the childhood obesity solution has yet to be fully realized. The ENHANCE project sought to position obesity prevention within the early learning philosophy of promoting the development of the 'whole child' and help child care providers connect child care feeding practices to children's development of lasting beliefs about healthful eating."
"Incorporating child feeding training into state child care licensure, national certification, or as a requirement for participation in the Child & Adult Care Food Program are potential mechanisms for improving the child care feeding environment and addressing the childhood obesity epidemic."
