I have to write a bunch of blog posts every week for a big nutrition and food foundation. Any topic ideas? Particular concerns or myths that need debunking? The more specific, the better.
March is national nutrition month, but what comes to mind regarding nutrition in March?

after viewing NOTMILK.COM

Hmm. Lack of available healthy foods in innercity areas, Groomsmen foods and their safety, food safety concerns in the industry (ie how many bugs per million cheerios?), good free programs for learning how to eat healthy (sparkpeople, mypyramid maybe), teaching kids about nutrition early on, Michelle Obama’s childhood obesity project, nutritionally rich foods and how to include them more easily in your diet, how activity and nutrition go hand in hand
Phew… that took some thinking. Maybe you can flesh those out and make them several different topics? Good luck!

I thought of another one: nutrition supplements are not food replacements… so many people think they are equivalent but really your body doesn’t always absorb it as well!

@Justlikeheaven: Haha. How did you find a site like that?
@LaborOfLove: Lovin your list! Things get complicated with the foundation, because the posts have to be, ah-hem, industry friendly (not bashing food industry) and the foundation has to have a “stance” on the topic. So, it can be limiting to use some of the same old stuff and repackage it. Yawn.
On the other hand, I could talk forever about some of the things you mentioned. I’m doing research right now on health disparities of food access.
P.S. Have you seen “Fresh” the Movie? It’s a documentary; you should see if there is a screening near you. A-mazing!

Gluten Intolerance and Celiac Disease (NOT the gluten-free fad diet). This is a topic that is being covered more and more, but there is so much misinformation about it. Doctors seem to under diagnose actual issues and lately some books and magazines have been promoting it as a weight loss technique, which I can assure you, it’s not.
I don’t know if that would fit under what your foundation is looking for, just something that came to mind.

when i took a food science human nutrition class in college, our final project was about how far ‘ethnic’ food has been americanized and the effect it has on the nutrition/perception of certain food items.

How about “Healthy” menu choices at fast food places? Like how much healther is a bag of apple slices to say a bag of baked lays? Or how much healthier is milk vs. diet coke or water? (It could go both ways, it’s either A LOT healthier, or not much healthier, in which case shouldn’t you just skip the fast food if you really wanted to affect your waistline?)

What a portion size is or how to tell without a scale! I’ve been going my whole life thinking rice and pasta is one cup!
