Actions are Measurable. What Nutritional Choice did you Make Today?

By Michael McBurney

Dietary guidance encourages the consumption of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fat-free and low-fat dairy products, and seafood.  Why? Because far too many people are not consuming recommended amounts of dietary fiber, calcium, magnesium, vitamin D and vitamin E. As discussed yesterday, most people need to increase their consumption of omega-3 fatty acids to balance n-3:n-6 fatty acid levels in the body. These food groups provide these nutrients.

Golley and colleagues examined dietary intakes and blood nutritional markers of 130 children, 4-13y, living in Australia. Blood concentrations of alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, and n-3 fatty acids were significantly correlated with dietary intake and there was an association with lutein concentrations. Approximately 4% of plasma fatty acids were n-3 fatty acids. A red blood cell omega-3 index of >8% is desirable.

Carotenoids are found in yellow, red, and orange pigments found in plants. Serum carotenoid concentrations reflect dietary intake and have been inversely associated with non-communicable disease risk. The data from Australian children is similar to that reported in American adults and children. We simply do not consume enough carotenoid-rich foods. And there is often adoption of numerous lifestyle choices, including physical inactivity, which are associated with fat accumulation and health risk.

Finally, >90% of Americans do not consume recommended amounts of vitamin E. Because of suboptimal intake, serum α-tocopherol concentrations are low.  Whole-grains, nuts, and omega-3 oils contain vitamin E. Whole-grains also provide dietary fiber. Nuts provide long-chain fatty acids and fiber.  By choosing nutrient dense foods, especially enriched/fortified foods, people reduce the risk of micronutrient inadequacy.

Fortified foods help ensure nutrient adequacy. Another option is to give your child a multivitamin-mineral supplements. The worst choice is inaction.
