The 12 Easiest Healthy Eating Tips–Ever!
Food allergies get a lot of media attention because they’re very scary. But a new study published in Clinical & Experimental Allergy shows that the incidence of children dying from a food allergy is more than 10 times lower than their chances of dying from an accident. To give that some perspective, according to the CDC, homicide is the third leading cause of death for children under 5; food allergies don’t even make it onto the list for the 10 Leading Causes of Death . Food allergies can always be identified retrospectively. Eating habits, however, are incredibly difficult to change. In an excellent editorial in The New York Times last week, “Bad Eating Habits Start in the Womb,” Kristin Wartman reviews http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/garcinia-cambogia-extract—crucial-data-released-231403591.html some evidence for the importance of introducing variety at an early age.

Side-step healthy-eating obstacles during the holidays
Allow yourself one small treat per day, but plan for it by eliminating something else, and be sure to account for the carbs. If it’s too tempting to keep treats in your house, say “no thanks” next time or, if you do give in, share some with a friend. The challenge: A decadent buffet spread at your friend’s annual holiday party. Stay-healthy strategy: Don’t graze. With all the cookies, nuts, crackers and cheese, veggies and dip surrounding you, mindless picking can easily add up to a meal’s worth or more of calories and send you way over your carb budget.

Japanese scientists prove that healthy eating reduces suicide risk
“The harder it is to tell what a food looked like when it came out of the ground, the more likely that food is highly processed.” -Neal Barnard, M.D., president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine 10. Just eat. “Vow not to multitask while eating. When you’re distracted, you can’t really pay attention to the taste and textures of your meal, so you rob yourself of the eating experience, which can leave you feeling both overly full and unsatisfied.” -Cynthia Sass, R.D., author of S.A.S.S.

Using behaviour change methods, Food Dudes aim to increase childrens consumption of fruit and vegetables and decrease the intake of sweet and fatty foods. The new programme is being piloted by a year four class at St Vincents RC primary school which, along with Tatton MP George Osborne, was demonstrated to Cheshire East councillor Rachel Bailey. I announced at the Autumn Statement last week the launch of free school meals to key stage one school children, said Mr Osborne. So its great to see today a local school and a local organisation, in my own constituency in Tatton, running a programme designed to encourage children to make healthy eating choices. With real evidence behind it, the Food Dudes programme and initiatives such as these will help ensure that the governments investment in free school meals will not only help hardworking families on cost, but will have a real impact in helping to improve healthy eating. Year four pupil Nevan Kiernan said: The blueberries are my favourite, and Mange Tout, Ive had something like them before but at school was the first time I tried them and they are really good. By the time they leave primary school, more than a third of all children in the North West are overweight or obese.

It concludes that eating fruit and vegetables reduces the risk of suicide by as much as 50 percent. The research was spearheaded by the National Centre for Global Health and Medicine in Tokyo, monitoring the eating habits of nearly 90,000 people between the ages of 45 and 74. Around 60 per cent of those who took part were female. Participants in the study were marked by the amount of vegetables, fruit and seaweed they consumed each day.
