Chapter 4 pp nutrition guidelines

  1. 1. Chapter 4: Nutrition Guidelines Essential Questions : What are the different components of a nutritious diet? How can I use these different components?
  2. 2. Essential Information <ul><li>GPS: FNW 1/C – Define and demonstrate an understanding of the components of a nutritious diet by planning menus for different age groups using Dietary Guidelines for Americans, other consumer dietary recommendations including MyPyramid, and the Exchange Lists for Meal Planning and Food Labels to plan menus. </li></ul><ul><li>Key Questions : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What are the tools for planning a healthful diet? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How can I use food recommendations and guidelines? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Key Vocabulary : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>My Pyramid </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dietary Reference Intakes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Recommended Daily Allowances </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Estimated Average Requirement </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Adequate Intake </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Upper Tolerable Level </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Daily Values </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Nutrient Density </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Tools for a Healthful Diet <ul><li>Dietary Reference Intakes – DRIs </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Developed by the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine, National Academy of Sciences </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A set of nutrient reference values </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Used to plan and assess diets for HEALTHY people </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Values are based on the most recent finding on nutrients </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Purpose – prevent diseases caused by lack of nutrients and prevent chronic diseases linked to nutrition (heart disease and diabetes) </li></ul></ul>

  25. 25. Tools for a Healthful Diet <ul><li>MyPyramid </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Portion Sizes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>It is important to be aware of portion sizes in order to lose, maintain or gain weight. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Read the labels on your food products to help you figure out portion size – food labeling laws require that serving sizes be uniform and reflect the amounts people usually eat. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>They must be expressed on the label in common household and metric measures </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>You will need to be able to figure out how many portions of each food group are in that serving. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  26. 26. Tools for a Healthful Diet <ul><li>The Daily Values on Food Labels </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Recommended nutrient intakes based on daily calorie needs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Daily Values for carbohydrate, fat, and protein are used as references on food labels are based on a 2,000 calorie diet </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The amounts of nutrients in a serving of a food product are expressed as a percentage of these Daily Values. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Most food labels do not have enough room to list all nutrients for each age range and sex – so they highlight only the nutrients most important to health of today’s consumer </li></ul></ul>
  27. 27. Tools for a Healthful Diet <ul><li>The Daily Values on Food Labels </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Percent Daily Values are listed for fat, saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrate, fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium and iron. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use the Daily Values to try to get 100% of all nutrients and to compare foods to get the most nutrient dense options </li></ul></ul>
  28. 28.

  29. 29. Tools for a Healthful Diet <ul><li>Nutrient Density </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Junk food vs. health food </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>There is no such thing as a perfect food AND there are very few foods that supply no nutrients. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>This means that the terms “junk food” and “health food” are poor labels for food – terms like “high nutrient density” and “low nutrient density” are more accurate </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Again, moderation, variety, and balance are key to a nutritious diet </li></ul></ul></ul>
  30. 30. Tools for a Healthful Diet <ul><li>Using Food Recommendations and Guidelines </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Keep a Food Diary </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Record of the kinds and amounts of food and beverages consumed for a given time </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Includes snacks and foods eaten away from home along with condiments, such as catsup, pickles, salad dressings, syrups, and jellies </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>You need a complete diary in order to have an accurate analysis of your diet – you will find it easy to forget what you ate if you wait too long to record the information </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>For accuracy, you need to accurately estimate your portion sizes – look at measuring utensils to help you become familiar with the size of amounts </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>A 3 ounce portion of chicken or meat = size of deck of playing cards </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Find out how much you bowls, cups, etc. hold which will help you estimate in the future </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
