It is a shame that in spite of the great efforts by various organizations to curb obesity among children, schools promote fast food and unhealthy drinks across the nation. Please share this with your school and PTA and help stop obesity!
Over the past 3 decades, childhood obesity rates in the US have tripled among 12-19 year olds and have more than quadrupled among children ages 6-11. We are seeing even higher rates of obesity in certain demographics such as the Hispanic/Latino and African American populations as well as in low-income communities. Overweight kids have a 70-80% chance of carrying their extra weight into adulthood
Obesity can also lead to other health problems such as: sleep apnea, hypertension, stroke, infertility, and osteoarthritis, just to name a few. Obesity is a major risk factor for type 2 diabetes, therefore it comes as no surprise that 55% of adults in the U.S. who have diabetes are also obese (CDC). Unfortunately when it comes to the child population, 1 in 2 Latino & African American children are predicted to develop diabetes. ACTIVITY: Sit Down Activity Let’s do a little activity to see how obesity effects us in the room alone. Please stand. I will ask a series of questions and if your answer is yes, please sit down. Questions: Do you have a family member that has diabetes, heart disease, or high blood pressure? Do you have a friend that has diabetes, heart disease, or high blood pressure? Do you have a co-worker that diabetes, heart disease, or high blood pressure? As you can see obesity and its related chronic diseases impact all of us.

…..Your Calories www.choosemyplate.gov to determine how many calories YOU need/daily to manage your wt Show 3 Daily Food Plan sheets & portion sheet
Question: Fruit portion smaller than veggie portion. Why? Fruit has higher sugar content, more calories. Some veggies contain more fiber than fruit. Champion Choices: Grains – whole vs refined, low in added sugar. Examples? Nutrient rich…more bang for your buck Depends on how food is prepared… Foods w/o added fat and sugar are nutrient dense.

Mention whole grains activity page Different types of grains: oats, barley, popcorn, brown rice
Vary your protein choices....beans, peas, nuts, soy (tofu, tempeh), & seafood as a main dish or part of a meal…not just lean cuts of meat Seafood – eat fish twice/wkly such as salmon, trout, herring (high in omega 3 FA) instead of meat or poultry Unsalted nuts & seeds – as delicious snacks or on salads
Butter and oil activity. Eat animals with two legs or less vs animals w/4 legs or more Question: Animals w/2 legs or less? (chx, turkey, fish) Animals w/4 legs or more? (cows, pigs, crab, shellfish..)…..more cholesterol
Low fat or fat free - to cut calories & sat fat Added sugars – watch out in flavored milks, fruit yogurts, puddings Question: Ice Cream?? Soy and other “milks”: check for level for Ca and other nutrients; many brands are fortified to the milk’s levels

Refined grains contain 0 to low levels of fiber Question: How can we tell if something is high in Na, fat or sugar? …NFL
Why are we watching for Na intake? Sodium vs. salt
Can anyone look at this label and tell me what the product is?
Added sugars contribute an average of 16 percent of the total calories in American diets. (Total empty calories should be closer to 5-15% depending on personal needs) As a percentage of calories from total added sugars, the major sources of added sugars in the diets of Americans are soda, energy drinks, sugar-sweetened fruit drinks, and sports drinks (46% of added sugar intake), grain-based desserts (13%), dairy-based desserts (6%), and candy (6%). Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010
Now we know what sugary drinks are, how they affect our health, and that too many sugary drinks are consumed. So what can we do to change our consumption patterns? Today we’re sharing with you “Make Better Beverage Choices – 10 Tips to get Started” (HANDOUT) from the www.MyPlate.gov website. You can see here on the handout, tip #9 says, “Check the Facts: Use the Nutrition Facts label to choose beverages at the grocery store. The label contains information about total sugars, fats, and calories to help you make better choices.” So let’s do that! Let’s discuss how much sugar is in some of the most popular drinks by reading their nutrition label and calculating the amount of sugar they contain.

What does this mean if 100 extra calories leads to 10 pounds of weight gain?
(Instructor reference: this is Coca Cola Original, but refer to it as “cola”) Added sugar

Adult Learner Relevance: Reflection, Consideration After participants guess, show them the prepared display bottle filled with sugar. Pass the display bottle around the class. Answer: A typical 20 ounce bottle of soda can have as much as 17 teaspoons of sugar, or even more. This bottle has 17 teaspoons of sugar. I’d like to show you how you can find out how much sugar is in a beverage by teaching you how to read a Nutrition Facts label. By the way, this is also a great exercise to do with your family the next time you’re shopping for groceries. Please get into pairs or small groups of 3-4 people.
Handout: Calculating How Much Sugar is in a Container The American Heart Association recommendations limit added sugar intake even further, to 6 tsp/day for women and 9 tsp/day for men.
Handout: Calculating How Much Sugar is in a Container To do that, divide the grams of sugar by four to get the total teaspoons of sugar.

All RYD messages are in line with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Focus on encouraging the consumer to make healthy beverage choices Please note here two things: #1 that we recommend water instead of sugary drinks – we do NOT say drink water instead of soda – as that calls out a specific beverage industry; per USDA directives we are to stay consistent with the MyPlate directive to drink water instead of sugary drinks. #3 Good Source of Nutrients, but eating the fruit directly is best.
