Over 500 RDNs are employed by the nation's supermarkets and perhaps thousands consult or partner with retailers. Many RDNs are drawn to the supermarket as a classroom to work directly with shoppers. Jane Andrews, MS, RD will use her expertise with Wegmans, a family-owned retailer on the East Coast, to showcase how RDNs serve as knowledge experts and communicators who inspire, influence, and multiply messages through staff and various media. Known for innovation and incredible service they have a food culture like few others, Jane leads both the nutrition and product labeling teams and will share her own insights as well as those of key executives and other Wegmans RDNs. Learn how RDNs can become a force in the workplace and beyond to marry a culture of wellness with one of great food.

With weight and healthy eating issues paramount, children are often pressured to eat the ''right'' foods but not too much. Feeding conflict and power struggles in early childhood can lead to disordered eating and weight dysregulation. This session describes how Responsive Feeding (RF) techniques, while addressing nutrition goals, can help clinicians provide parents with strategies that foster positive childhood eating habits resulting in a healthy relationship with food and a healthy weight.

Objectives:

  • Discuss the research that underlines RF as it pertains to development of a healthy relationship with food and to long-term prevention of eating disorders, overweight and obesity.
  • Describe the principles underlying the RF philosophy and distinguish between the responsibilities of the parent/caregiver and the child in the feeding relationship.
  • Employ the Trust Model of feeding as parents bridge the transition from infancy (demand feeding) to early toddlerhood and preschool (structured feeding) to lay the foundation for optimal food acceptance skills.

The struggle parents face in raising healthier eaters comes not from a knowledge gap, but from underdeveloped parenting skills. The old tactics that have been passed down from generation-to-generation such as the 'clean plate club,' food rewards and forcing kids to eat their vegetables don't work. Parents need to know less about what kids should eat, and more about how they should eat. This session shows RDNs how to coach parents to develop more effective feeding strategies.

Objectives:

  • Describe three common parent feeding mistakes most parents make, and three more productive alternatives.
  • Highlight the major points of the Academy's position statement on nutrition for 6-11-year-old children (currently under review), and how coaching effective parenting can help families to meet the guidelines.
  • Conduct a 15-minute parent coaching session to show RDNs how to develop more effective feedin strategies.

To improve health outcomes, we need to talk more about behavior change and less about health education. This session helps the RDN to not only develop skills in effective health coaching techniques such as motivational interviewing and cognitive coaching, but also identify new professional and career opportunities that open up as a result of developing knowledge and skills in health coaching.

Objectives:

  • Describe the major features of effective behavior change interventions.
  • Conduct a 15-minute health coaching session, using techniques such as motivational interviewing and cognitive coaching.

Last fall, the FDA issued a Federal Register notice with a preliminary determination that partially hydrogenated oils (PHO) are no longer ''generally recognized as safe,'' or GRAS. Given this most recent action by FDA, this informative session will answer relevant questions for RDNs and provide a better understanding of the GRAS process, what's in our food, why it's there, and the risks, benefits and challenges associated with removing certain ingredients from the food supply.

Objectives:

  • Explain what a Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) ingredient is and the criteria for achieving GRAS status.
  • Discuss the potential impacts of FDA's determination regarding the GRAS status of partially hydrogenated oils on the food supply, other GRAS ingredients, and the future of the GRAS category as a whole.
  • Identify the risks, benefits and challenges associated with the complete removal of partially hydrogenated oils from the US food supply.

In 2006 the FDA began requiring the listing of amounts of trans fats, along with saturated fat and cholesterol, on ingredient labels. Although an important milestone for protecting public health, this move also triggered increased use of palm oil as a substitute. This session will explore the implications of the FDA's move to ban trans fats altogether for those trying to make dietary shifts driven by health concerns and the environment.

Objectives:

  • Describe the impact trans fats have had on public health and the history of the FDA's decision to eliminate them from the food supply.
  • List the sectors of the U.S. food system that will be impacted by the FDA's decision, what alternative oils are likely to be favored, and some of their relative health related attributes, particularly relative levels of saturated fats.
  • Identify the impact that replacing vegetable oil formulations in foods with palm oil has on tropical rainforests, biological diversity, and human rights in the regions where palm oil is grown, and what is being done to address this.

Children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) have a fivefold increase in the odds of developing a feeding problem compared to peers. While there is a well-established evidence base for treating feeding concerns in other pediatric populations, the unique behavioral and developmental profile associated with ASD often necessitates adaptation to existing methods and techniques. The purpose of this session is to develop a greater understanding the treatment of feeding disorders in ASD using a case study approach.

Objectives:

  • Define and discuss the prevalence of feeding disorders in ASD.
  • Discuss the nutrition issues associated with ASD.
  • Identify appropriate interventions for feeding disorders in ASD based on the severity of the presenting problem including parent consultation, nutritional guidance, behavioral therapy, medical interventions and intensive inpatient treatment.

Objectives:

  • Describe the differences between nutrition education programs that follow a weight-focused (diet) paradigm verses a weight-neutral (non-diet) paradigm.
  • Describe five advantages of incorporating non-diet approaches into nutrition education

This hands-on workshop will provide participants with a chance to see how ANDHII (Academy ofNutrition and Dietetics Health Informatics Infrastructure) can be used within their practice setting to facilitate documentation. After watching a demonstration of ANDHII in action, breakout sessions will focus on specific case studies relevant to one of three areas of practice: long-term care, adult acute care, and pediatric and maternal care (both ambulatory and public health based). In working on these case studies, participants will focus on NCP terminology to document progress and outcomes using the new ANDHII software tool on their own laptops. Planned with the Academy Center for Professional Development and the NCP-SL Committee. **Advanced registration required to attend. Attendance is limited to advance registrants ONLY. Please visit the FNCE Registration page to add this to your attendee profile if you wish to attend.

Driving change to increase access to healthy foods for children will impact the health and wellness of the nation's children. Over 16 million children in the U.S. are food insecure and over 51 million children rely on school meals to help them meet their nutritional needs. Increasing access to healthy foods for these children as well as all others can make a long-term impact on their overall health and well-being as well as their future endeavors in life, such as education and employment. The impact of Fuel Up to Play 60 and the Future of Food Partnership will be highlighted. Through public-private partnerships RDNs can help leverage available resources and to promote child health and wellness. Registered Dietitian Nutritionists will be challenged to promote and evaluate public-private partnerships that may advance the outcomes of interventions to improve child health and reduce hunger. Planned with the Academy National Sponsor: National Dairy Council.

Objectives:

  • Describe how public-private partnerships may impact the health of Americans, particularly children.
  • Engage in community interventions that make sustainable change in access to healthy foods as well as physical activity, particularly in schools and for the food insecure.
  • Advocate for increased access to healthy foods through interventions in a variety of community settings including schools, food banks, community organizations and other venues.
