We were able to attend What’s New in School Nutrition: Joining Forces for Healthier Schools, which was a wonderful workshop held on January 13, 2011 at Stark State College. Many of you who attended mentioned that you were interested in the school areas around your community. I compiled many web sites and sent them out. I also asked for your input on how we could implement the information from the web sites into the schools. I hadn’t heard back from anyone yet. I was gearing towards contacting any school’s library (I know some schools have cut their libraries, such as my school district has), but wanted to see if a scheduled story time or poster/coloring contest for the kids could take place. Also asking kids to save various empty food product boxes. Contact the Principal for possibly a school assembly with the kids to spend some time reading labels and comparing calories, fat, sugar content, vitamins, etc. Would be cool to divide the kids into groups to see if they can plan the “healthiest meal.” Get the math teacher involved to add up the calories from the various products the kids have collected to devise a healthy meal. Lastly, maybe have a “Fear Factor” event. Provide unusual vegetables & fruits cut into bite-size pieces. Offer the opportunity to taste the guess the food. I have once again provided many different web sites to contact and ask for their items to use for NNM now and in the future.

A dietitian will be speaking about Micronutrient Deficiencies associated with bariatric surgery, a physician will discuss bariatric surgery, there will be a two hour session regarding the new school wellness policy HB210 (will also give jurisprudence credit), and pending is a physician to discuss Malnutrition and Medical coding. I will need volunteers for sign-in sheets, especially the jurisprudence since that has to be forwarded to Columbus. The tentative title for Super Saturday is "The Gut and All Its Glory."

March 2011 3 Please join us at the next SCDA meeting: (a recorded slide & audio presentation) Celiac Disease and the Gluten-Free Diet: What Every Health Professional Needs to Know Presented by: Shelley Case, BSc, RD Celiac disease is an inherited autoimmune disorder affecting 1 out of every 100 people – yet over 90% remain undiagnosed. Many are misdiagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, ulcers or allergies. If left untreated, celiac disease can result in nutritional deficiencies, infertility, osteoporosis, cancer and development of other autoimmune disorders. Medical nutrition therapy with a gluten-free diet is the only treatment for celiac disease. Health professionals need to be armed with the most current, evidence-based and practical information about the disease and diet in order to effectively meet the needs of this rapidly growing population. This session will feature an update on previously unrecognized symptoms, associated disorders (e.g.,Type 1 diabetes, autoimmune thyroid disease, Down syndrome) and complications; serological and genetic testing; gluten-free diet guidelines; new food allergen and gluten-free labeling regulations; and practical resources for dietitians and their clients. Upon completion of this program, the participant will be able to: 1. Identify the signs and symptoms of celiac disease in children and adults 2. List disorders associated with celiac disease 3. List the complications and nutritional concerns 4. Explain the diagnostic tests for celiac disease 5. Describe the gluten-free diet including foods/ingredients allowed, to avoid and to question 6. Discuss the impact of current and proposed labeling regulations on gluten-free diet planning 7. Understand the quality of life issues for clients on a gluten-free diet 8. Identify appropriate gluten-free specialty products and resources for clients CEUs: 2 for Registered Dietitians, Dietetic Technicians Registered and Certified Dietary Managers A registered dietitian, Shelley Case is a leading international nutrition expert on celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
