The aim of this randomized crossover study, is to investigate the effect of school meals based on a sustainable New Nordic Diet on growth, learning abilities, well-being, sleep quality, physical activity and risk markers of cardiovascular disease (CVD), type II diabetes and osteoporosis in 8-11 year old Danish school children. The participating 3rd and 4th grades on 9 selected primary schools will be randomized to either start receiving New Nordic Diet ... Read More

Healthy eating can be difficult for people who live in poor, geographically isolated regions of the United States. In particular, people who live in Appalachia often experience food insecurity (i.e., their access to adequate food is limited by a lack of money and other resources at times during the year) and lack of access to healthy foods. This pilot study evaluates the effectiveness of motivational interviewing in helping individuals who live in these ... Read More

Epidemiological data and studies in animal models suggest, that polyunsatured fatty acids (PUFA) rather than mono-unsatured fatty acids (MUFA) are associated with lower hepatic lipid content (HCL) and may facilitate a decrease of HCL in case of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). The investigators therefore conduct an interventional trial in subjects with normal glucose metabolism, but increased HCL, fulfilling criteria for NAFLD. The study ... Read More

In this randomized, double-blind clinical trial, eligible hospitalized ICU patients with EN will be included. Patients will be divided into two groups. The control group with the standard EN and intervention group with high fat EN. 50% of the total fat will be provided by olive oil. Nutritional intake record form will be completed and daily calorie intake will be calculated. High fat EN feeding will be offered for 15 consecutive days maximally. At the end of ... Read More

Meal size is strongly influenced by a number of external features of the food environment which can promote over-consumption, such as the availability of palatable energy dense foods and large portion sizes. The current research aimed to investigate whether natural food-based differences in texture could be used to slow down eating rate and reduce intake from large portions. A four-session randomised crossover study assessed the effect of faster vs. slower ... Read More

Adequate nutrition during the first years of life is essential to reach full body and brain development potential. Children under the age of 5 in Central America and El Salvador suffer from micronutrient deficiencies. In El Salvador, ~ 20% of children under the age of 5 suffer from chronic undernutrition which is reflected in low length-for-their age Z-scores and anemia. This trial will examine the impact on health and growth in young children that will ... Read More

Early initiation of enteral feeding, achievement of full enteral feeding and cessation of parenteral nutrition are extremely important in the very premature infant. This way it is possible to achieve good post-natal growth and developement while minimizing the metabolic and infectious complications of parenteral feeding. There isn't much information in literature regarding the impact of enteral feeding on intestinal blood flow and intestinal regional ... Read More

Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) is a way of feeding a person intravenously, and is required when the gastrointestinal tract is not able to function properly. TPN contains carbohydrates, protein, and fat and lipids. It also contains minerals and vitamins. The lipid that is currently used at the University Health Network home TPN program is Intralipid20%, which is based on Soybean oil, contains polyunsaturated fats and is a good source of energy and essential ...

Parenteral nutrition (PN) provides intravenous nutritional supplementation for infants unable to absorb adequate enteral nutrients secondary to insufficient intestinal length or function. In early PN-associated cholestasis, the dose of traditional soy based lipid is limited to 1 g/kg/day which often limits the growth capacity of parenteral nutrition-dependent infants. Inadequate growth is directly related to poor neurological outcomes, failure to facilitate ... Read More

Vitamin D deficiency is widely prevalent in India. Serum 25(OH)D levels are <20 ng /ml in up to 90% of them. Recently, in a randomized control trial, investigators have shown that dual cholecalciferol and calcium supplementation lead to significant improvement in hand grip strength and distance covered during six minutes walk test. Present study is being taken to further understand the functional significance of 25(OH)D in terms of its effect on Skeletal ... Read More

We hope to learn the clinical and functional signs of sub-clinical vitamin B12 deficiency and its response to supplementation in non-anemic, non-pregnant, and non-lactating women in Rural Mexico. Vitamin B12 is important in hematopoiesis, neuro-cognitive functions and genetic integrity. However vitamin B12 is only found in animal source foods therefore a large segment of the population in developing countries and those practicing vegetarianism are at risk of ... Read More

The purpose of this project is to study the effectiveness of teaching teens and young women with Phenylketonuria (PKU) or Maple Syrup Urine Disease (MSUD) about their disease and nutrition related issues in a camp environment. It will also look at pregnancy outcome results in women with PKU who attended Metabolic Camp and compare their results to other women with PKU who have not attended the Metabolic Camp. Read More

anxiety disorder is one of the major public health problems worldwide. 25% of people experience anxiety disorders throughout life. Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is known as the most prevalent anxiety disorder. Saffron has previously approved as an effective adjuvant therapy in depression and might alleviate GAD symptoms.Since up to the best of our knowledge no human studies have assessed the therapeutic effect of saffron as an adjuvant therapy in GAD ...
