...A healthy school nutrition environment encompasses more than food and beverage choices available in the lunch line. It also includes appropriate meal schedules and serving times, dining atmosphere, food/beverage consumption in the classroom, food and beverage fund-raisers, availability of and access to vending machines, behaviors role-modeled by staff, nutrition education at school, physical activity, and generally the messages about eating and physical activity that students receive at school. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), in collaboration with many national nutrition and school organizations, identified six components of a healthy school nutrition environment. Each one is important and affects the nutrition and physical activity in a child’s school life. Healthy eating and physical activity are essential for students to achieve their full academic and physical potential, mental growth, and lifelong health and well-being. Schools influence students’ eating and physical activity patterns. In a school committed to a healthy nutrition environment, every member of the education team makes nutrition and physical activity top priorities every day. The hectic lifestyle of most families in the United States relies heavily on fast foods and leaves little time for regular physical activity. Such lifestyles have significantly affected the health of our nation’s children. Many students arrive at school with empty stomachs, while others sip sodas and munch on high fat foods ...

...Students of Cohort23: Health Enhancing Behaviors, Healthy Attitudes and Meal Patterns By Sandra M. Hagans Wilmington University Peer Review: January 2014 Introduction Health is linked to the way many people live their lives. Healthy behaviors can be defined as many things such as non-smoking, physically inactive, moderate alcohol intake, healthy eating, safeguards to sexual activity, vitamin intake and positive relationships. (Phoenix, Mo & Winnie, 2009). Whereas unhealthy behaviors can be defined as abusing alcohol or drugs, unbalanced nutrition and the lack of physical activity. There are many issues around eating healthy such as the cost of healthy foods, taste i.e. good versus bad, or the availability or access, or weight control (van Kleef’, Otten, and van Trijp, 2012). Examples of unhealthy dietary patterns that have become increasingly prevalent include irregular meals and frequent unhealthy snacks dominating eating habits (Spanos & Hankey, 2009). The importance of a healthy lifestyle and well-being are receiving an increasing amount of attention and Phoenix and Winnie (2009) noted that The World Health Organization estimated that 50.8% of deaths are attributed to diseases closely related to unhealthy lifestyles. Social and cultural aspects of people’s food choices that involve their attitudes and motives behind their food choice have been recognized as important factors (Fjellstrom, 2004).

...need to be taught the right ways to eat and exercise. Parent/caregivers need to support the children in their life to live a healthy life to avoid obesity in children. In today’s society it is easier for kids to sit around playing video games and snacking than playing outside and having healthy meals. “Childhood obesity has reached epidemic proportions in developed countries. “In the United States, the prevalence of overweight for children increased by 182% between 1971–74 and 1999–2000.” (Foley. p.1) Children have a better chance at living a healthy life style and preventing obesity when they are taught how to eat healthy, exercise and gain knowledge of a healthy life style.

To Snack or Not to Snack

...To Snack or Not to Snack: That is the Problem “A problem exists when a situation has negative effects. Recognizing that there is a problem–being aware of those effects-is essential before you can begin to solve it” (Carter, Bishop, & Kravits, 2007, p. 94). A very profound statement that is easy to relate to for anyone dealing with a problem in his or her day-to-day life. I find it intriguing how sometimes solving one problem can lead to another. The day-to-day problem I want to solve is snacking during the day. You may be wondering how that can be construed as a problem. It has, unfortunately, turned into a problem I struggle with daily. Here is my story. The Start Prior to some minor oral surgery, the doctor told me that I needed to stop smoking two days before and seven days after surgery. Keeping my health and healing in mind, I complied with the doctors’ directions. After surgery he placed me on medication to decrease the pain so the craving to smoke never surfaced. Once I was off the pain medication, it was apparent that I would need some tips to quit smoking. The Foundation for a Smoke Free America (1982-2002) website suggests several tips to help including deep breathing exercises; increase fluid intake for the first few days; be patient, the urge to smoke will pass; avoid alcohol, sugar, and coffee as it may increase the desire to smoke; and avoid fatty foods as the body’s metabolism may slow down. As I have heard in the past, people who try to...

...What's the background? Most employers who provide health insurance also provide some type of wellness benefit. The 2012 Kaiser Family Foundation and Health Research and Educational Trust annual survey of employer health benefits found that 63 percent of companies with three or more employees that offered health benefits also offered at least one wellness program. In addition, 60 percent of these companies offered wellness benefits to spouses or dependents of employees. The larger the company, the more likely it was to offer a wellness program; in fact, almost all companies with 1,000 or more employees offered one. Larger employers usually run wellness programs themselves. For small companies, wellness programs are typically run by the same firms that administer the employer's health benefits plan or by another entity referred to as a third-party administrator. Wellness Program Content: Typical features of wellness programs are health-risk assessments and screenings for high blood pressure and cholesterol; behavior modification programs, such as tobacco cessation, weight management, and exercise; health education, including classes or referrals to online sites for health advice; and changes in the work environment or provision of special benefits to encourage exercise and healthy food choices, such as subsidized he...

...Problem Solution for Best Snacks MMPBL 550 Best Snacks Problem Solution Stephanie Vickers MMPBL/550 March 23, 2012 Best Snacks Problem Solution For the past 100 years, Best Snacks, Inc. has been in the top two leading positions in the snack industry, making them an ideal investment for stockholders. Recently, in the last couple of years Best Snacks sales have declined, resulting in decreased stock prices, market share, and in second place in the industry.
