Exploring Breastfeeding Knowledge and Attitudes among Noncaregivers: A Narrative Review.
Abstract Exclusive breastfeeding to 6 months with continued breastfeeding up to 2 years and beyond are well-established infant feeding recommendations based on evidence that breastfeeding has unparalleled maternal and infant health benefits as well as environmental and economic benefits. As with many high-income countries, breastfeeding rates remain suboptimal with only a quarter of Canadian and European infants receiving breast milk exclusively for the first 6 months. Breastfeeding promotion efforts have largely targeted caregivers in the prenatal and postnatal period; however, breastfeeding outcomes have been sh...

Weight Inclusive Practice: Shifting the Focus from Weight to Social Justice.
Abstract Obesity is framed by mainstream media and health care professionals as an "epidemic" contributing to the ill health of the population. This paper reviews literature related to dominant discourses about weight in dietetics, drawing on literature from other health care disciplines, and how these discourses influence patient care. Emerging, competing discourses are also reviewed. Literature highlighted that dietitians and dietetic students are often biased and hold stigmatizing beliefs toward "overweight" and "obese" patients. No research has been conducted in Canada addressing ...

Participant Evaluation of a Prediabetes Intervention Program Designed for Rural Adults.
This study aimed to evaluate a prediabetes intervention program designed for rural adults in southwestern Ontario based on the feedback of participants. Rural adults with prediabetes were referred by physicians to an intervention program developed to assist with unique barriers rural adults face related to the built environment and socioeconomic status when adopting a healthy lifestyle. After 6 monthly education sessions offered by a dietitian and a nurse, participants completed a questionnaire to share their program experience. In addition, 6 focus groups consisting of 5-9 participants were conducted to assess program acc...

Conclusion: Our study provides support for an association between some dietary factors and lung function, though not entirely consistent between a specific dietary factor and the outcomes studied (FVC, FEV1, FVC/FEV1, and FEF25%-75%). The associations between a specific biomarker and lung function were more consistent (i.e., observed with a larger number of lung function outcomes) than were the dietary factors.

Vegetable/Fruit Intakes of Young Children at Home and in Childcare Centres.
Conclusions: The 4-5 year olds may not be increasing their vegetable/fruit intakes as the CFG recommends. While just over half of children met CFG vegetable/fruit recommendations, the vegetable/fruit items were mostly high quality; fruit and juice predominated. Identification of strategies to support increased vegetable/fruit intakes of children in both home and childcare environments is warranted.

Implementing a Clinical Practice Change: Adopting the Nutrition Care Process.
Abstract The Nutrition Care Process (NCP), created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, provides a framework that encourages critical thinking and promotes uniform documentation by Registered Dietitians (RD). Additionally, it creates a link between the nutrition assessment, nutrition intervention, and the predicted or actual nutrition outcome. NCP has been integrated into a number of institutions in Canada and internationally. A committee of nonmanagement RDs at the Hospital for Sick Children led the Department of Clinical Dietetics in adopting the NCP. The committee developed and consecutively delivered a t...

Blenderized Tube Feeding: A Survey of Dietitians' Perspectives, Education, and Perceived Competence.
Abstract Increasingly, patients and their caregivers desire blenderized tube feeding (BTF) as an alternative or adjunct to commercial enteral formula. Although dietitians are central in the care of tube fed patients, they do not necessarily have training or experience with BTF and may therefore find it challenging to manage the nutrition of patients who opt for this enteral nutrition approach. To describe dietitians' perspectives, perceived competence, and education on BTF, a cross-sectional survey was conducted by use of an original questionnaire. Dietitians with the authority to practice enteral nutrition in the...

Acceptability of Donor Human Milk in Muslim Populations in Canada.
Abstract Human milk is considered to be the best nutritional option for newborns. When a mother gives birth prematurely, she may have difficulty providing breast milk for her child. Pasteurized donor human milk (DM) is a better feeding alternative than preterm formula. Human milk banks in North America pool the milk from up to 5 women before distribution, a concept which does not pose a problem for most living in the Western world. Muslim families living in North America may reject the use of DM due to the idea of milk kinship and the anonymity of the donor. This paper aims to provide knowledge to Canadian clinici...

The Relationship between Texture-Modified Diets, Mealtime Duration, and Dysphagia Risk in Long-Term Care.
Abstract Many long-term care (LTC) residents have an increased risk for dysphagia and receive texture-modified diets. Dysphagia has been shown to be associated with longer mealtime duration, and the use of texture-modified diets has been associated with reduced nutritional intake. The current study aimed to determine if the degree of diet modification affected mealtime duration and to examine the correlation between texture-modified diets and dysphagia risk. Data were collected from 639 LTC residents, aged 62-102 years. Nine meal observations per resident provided measures of meal duration, consistencies consumed,...

Adverse Birth Outcomes Associated with Types of Eating Disorders: A Review.
Abstract At least 5% of women have an eating disorder (ED) during pregnancy. These EDs affect prepregnancy body mass index (BMI) and weight gain during pregnancy, factors associated with birth complications and adverse neonatal outcomes. This review contributes to the literature by examining several adverse birth outcomes associated with EDs and differentiates between past and present EDs. Of the 18 articles reviewed, EDs were associated with preterm birth in 5/14 (36%) and small-for-gestational-age in 5/8 (63%) studies. Anorexia Nervosa increases the odds of a low birth weight baby, particularly when women enter ...
