Hello

FROM THE PRESIDENT It is amazing to think that 2017 has come and gone and that our committee has been in office for 6 months. And what a remarkable 6 months it has been! Our committee has travelled the globe and brought back fantastic dietetic information from all around the world. Christine Taljaard (representation) attended IUNS in Brazil, Abby Courtenay (PR) went to FNCE in America, and I was very fortunate to attend Anuga in Germany. Anuga is the world’s biggest trade food fair. It was mind-blowing to stand among over 10 000 exhibitors and experience the vastness of potential for the dietetic profession.

We have done a bit of an admin change this year and so you would have received your 2018 membership renewal in October this year. We thank you for your patience in this change over. To those of you who have renewed your membership,

thank you. To all our new members, we welcome you to our wonderful association. ADSA is continuously striving to improve our member benefits and experience while achieving our vision and mission. We offer the fabulous resource of

PEN to our full members and encourage those who are yet to use it to give it a spin this holiday. For those needing a bit of help negotiating the site, please contact adsamembers@gmail.com and Kerry-Ann (Membership) will assist where she can. As a committee, we are working very hard to improve the perception and reputation of the dietetic profession in our country. We have taken our sponsorship policy one-step further to align with the WHO guidance on Ending Inappropriate Promotion of Foods for Infants and Young Children. This is an insightful document and I encourage all our members to read it (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/ doi/10.1111/mcn.12491/full). From a PR perspective, our amazing team has been very busy. A vote of special thanks to Abby, Jess and Jackie (Liquidlingo) who all work tirelessly to make sure that ADSA and its dietitians are portrayed positively in the media. In the second half of 2017, ADSA has received and implemented 23 media queries over and above those done for specific health days. In August, we celebrated national breastfeeding week, themed “Breastfeeding and Work - Let’s make it work”. This generated 13 pieces of media coverage, 10 radio interviews and a TV interview. Kidney Awareness week generated 5 media pieces and 4 radio interviews around the theme “Six Eating Habits For Healthy Kidneys”. National Nutrition week (9 – 15 October 2017) called us all to “Rethink Your DrinkChoose Water”. We are very proud to say that ADSA hosted a Twitter Talk that trended on twitter for 50 out of the active 60 minutes. We thank everyone who participated and encourage all our members to engage in this wonderful

social media campaign next year. The hashtag #RethinkYourDrink generated over 200 000 impressions during our annual NNW twitter talk and the spill over for our social media presence is 81 more Facebook likes and 79 new twitter followers. The social media campaign this year was by far the most successful. A fabulous drive to give back to the profession was adopted by our committee this year. As you know ADSA gives academic bursaries to qualifying students every year, this bursary then sees them through their studies and provides the necessary materials (textbooks etc.). As a committee, we felt we could do more with a little help, Crowd Funding has become a popular income revenue on social media and we wondered if we could motivate our members to give back. We call all members to contribute to a Bursary by

The National Nutrition Congress 2018 will be hosted at Misty Hills in Johannesburg from 5-7 September 2018 presenting the theme “Nutrition: Past, Present and Future”. We look forward to welcoming as many of our members as possible to these world-class events.

Planning and negotiations are well under way for both the ICDA 2020 congress and our National Nutrition Congress next year. This is the first time the ICDA congress will be held on African soil and we are excited to host a congress of this magnitude. The theme is Improving

I wish all our members and their families a relaxed and safe festive season. For all our members celebrating, I wish you a blessed Christmas filled with the true presence of Christ. I look forward to a successful 2018.

Yours in Nutrition

IUNS, BUENOS AIRES

The International Congress of Nutrition (ICN) was hosted by The Sociedad Argentina de Nutricion (SAN). The congress took place at Buenos Aires, Argentina from the 15th – 20th October 2017. The ICN is a four yearly meeting that has been held since 1946. The 22nd edition will be held in Tokyo, Japan from the 14 – 19th September, 2021 (http://icn2021.org/).

Topics that were addressed included:

A D S A R E P R E S E N TAT I O N

• Advances in Nutrition Research • Nutrition Through Life Course

FNCE, CHICAGO

• Public Health Nutrition and Environment

This year Maretha Vermaak and I were privileged to have won the Nutritional Solutions CNE competition (organized by Claire Julsing-Strydom) for a trip to Chicago to attend the centennial celebration of The American Dietetic Association’s Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo (FNCE). After a gruelling 32-hour flight, connecting in Dubai only to be told we couldn’t board our plane, fighting with the airline to get the service we deserve and finally being upgraded to the business lounge and preferential seat (thanks again Claire!) we eventually arrived in America.

• Nutrition and Management of Diseases • Nutrients and Nutritional Assessment • Functional Foods and Bioactive Compounds • Food culture practices and Nutritional Education • Agriculture, Food Science and Safety

The dietetic fraternity in South Africa can be extremely proud of the fellow African individuals who have made huge progress in advancing nutrition. Prof Salome Kruger (RD) SA and Prof Johann Jerling RNT (SA) have been selected to receive the title of Fellow of the International Union of Nutritional Sciences. This prestigious award is presented to individuals who have rendered outstanding service to the cause of nutrition. We congratulate Prof Kruger and Prof Jerling on this great achievement.

The opening FNCE ceremony featured keynote speaker Dr Sanjay Gupta. His charm and charisma immediately lifted us all out of the jetlag and we knew why we had made this long trip. The magnitude of this conference must not be underestimated. The 2017 FNCE was recorded as the best attended FNCE ever with over 13 000 delegates. The number of students at this event was almost equivalent to the number of dietitians in South Africa. The lectures and expo hall were magnificent. At any one time there were up to eight different lectures running concomitantly, with every relevant topic you could imagine being

Within the broader African nutrition landscape, we also applaud Prof Anna Lartey, originally from Ghana, who

presented. Whether you’re interested in clinical nutrition, public health, food service or even private practice, there was something for everyone at FNCE 2017. I did a balanced mix of lectures designed to inspire entrepreneurial spirit and improve my communication and leadership skills with a touch of clinical to keep me on my toes. There were four lectures per day with time in between to attend poster sessions, go to the ‘learning lounge’ or browse the expo. The lectures that stood out for me included the opening keynote speaker Dr. Sanjay Gupta with his talk on how media influences healthcare today, ‘Hot Career Paths in Nutrition’ (specifically Dawn Jackson Blatner RDN), ‘Second Century Communication Tools for Dietitians’ with Ted Souder from Google and Janet Helm who is a food and nutrition strategist and finally the closing speaker Dr. Michio Kaku who spoke about the future of the mind. I was truly blown away by the passion and knowledge of these speakers and I felt truly inspired to be a dietitian. I think the future is looking really bright for our profession and we need to continue to build it and one another up.

amazed me the most was the presence of all the associations linked to food in America: almonds, walnuts, pistachios, strawberries, cranberries, sorghum, wholegrains, pulses and more. The current food trends included vegan foods, probiotics added to all food types, many ‘free from’ foods (mainly gluten free) and everyday snack foods that contain a mix of nuts, seeds, grains, fruit and vegetables. Every form of health food was available to taste and boy did we taste all types. The strangest food items I came across included the likes of vegan coconut jerky and a salt fermented probiotic drink (less than pleasant). Many of the items we saw at the expo are not yet available in South Africa, but are available on Amazon (if you are willing to pay shipping fees). To anyone contemplating going to FNCE in coming years, I would highly recommend it. Perhaps the ICDA 2020 conference could follow in FNCE’s footsteps. A huge thank you to Claire for making this opportunity a reality. Words cannot express how truly grateful I am. Keep an eye out on our Nutrition Confidence blog and ADSA closed Facebook page for summaries of the lectures I attended.

The expo was like something out of a dream- the only event that I can think to compare it to is the ‘Good Food and Wine Show’. There were literally hundreds of exhibitors with everything you can possibly think of. What

If you could host a dinner party with any famous name in nutrition, who would it be and why?

Listen to your body – and eat intuitively. We are all so biochemically unique. What works for me, might not work for you!

Dr. Libby Weaver. She taught me so much while I was studying.

What food would you eat everyday if it was kilojoule free?

What South African food do you miss the most?

I don’t believe in kilojoule or calorie counting, but because avocado is a nutrient-dense food I would have to say that!

Pap & gravy. What is the healthiest nutrition habit you believe we can teach our children?

If you were a food, what food would you be and why?

To love and appreciate their bodies. I believe having a wholesome relationship with your body is even more important than a healthy diet when it comes to overall wellbeing.

A cauliflower – because I am single handily keeping the cauliflower industry alive (my fave!).

What is the funniest/oddest thing you’ve ever heard from a person about nutrition, weight, or dieting?

What is your food/ nutrition philosophy? I take a gentle approach to health and nutrition. I listen to my body and give it exactly what it needs. I eat a wholefood balance that consists of balance in every sense – and I don’t do extremes.

The fruit diet – I remember seeing a woman in Crete who had a table full of grapes – and she ate them all!

ADSA BREASTFEEDING WEEK - CAPE TIMES

BIZCOMMUNITY WORLD DIABETES DAY

http://www.bizcommunity.com

Women and diabetes in the spotlight this November 14 NOV 2017

ISSUED BY: ASSOCIATION FOR DIETETICS IN SOUTH AFRICA

Over the past decades, the rise of diabetes around the world has been so prevalent and extreme, it is sometimes referred to as the epidemic of our modern times. In 2017, the diabetes focus theme is Women and Diabetes. Globally, diabetes is the ninth leading cause of death in women, resulting in 2.1 million deaths each year. It is estimated that there are currently more than 199 million women living with diabetes, and by 2040, this total is expected to reach over 310 million.

Registered dietitian and ADSA (the Association for Dietetics in South Africa) spokesperson, Ria Catsicas, says, “According to the latest mortality report for South Africa released earlier this year, diabetes is ranked as the leading cause of death in women, and the most important risk factor for developing Type 2 diabetes is obesity. At this time, more than 60% of South African women are either overweight or obese, putting them at higher risk than men of developing diabetes in the future.” Gender also means that women experience additional health risks due to obesity. As Ria notes: “Almost 17% of pregnant South African women experience gestational diabetes which is directly related to obesity. This condition puts them at risk of experiencing high blood pressure during their pregnancy, miscarriages and still birth. In addition, the babies of mothers-to-be with gestational diabetes tend to be large which can contribute to complications during birth and are themselves at a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes later in life. Obesity also plays a role in increasing the risks of female infertility.” Optimal nutrition is key for the person with diabetes; it is also crucial for those who may not have diabetes yet, but are insulin-resistant and those with a family history of diabetes, as genetics are also a risk. Optimal nutrition is also essential for all women – up to 70% of cases of type 2 diabetes can be prevented by following a healthy lifestyle. Type 1 diabetes is managed by medication (injectable insulin and or tablets),a controlled diet and exercise; but when it comes to type 2 diabetes, good nutrition along with other healthy lifestyle changes are usually the first line of treatment to manage diabetes, and if medication is required, a healthy diet can complement and often influence the medicine, to help avoid experiencing the life-threatening complications of diabetes. Tabitha Hume, also a registered dietitian and ADSA spokesperson, points out that commonsense healthy lifestyle changes can be a vital safeguard. “Balanced meals that are made up of a combination of high fibre, low-GI carbohydrates, lean protein and healthy plant fats with generous helpings of vegetables and salads and some fruit (in controlled portions) can be a general guide. However, plasma glucose control is very individual, depending on the severity of the diabetes, and the type and dosage of medication being used. Diabetics will need the help of a registered clinical dietitian who can support them in translating these guidelines into the practical meal plans that best suit their food culture, their taste preferences, daily routines and lifestyles." ADSA spokesperson Nasreen Jaffer agrees, “There is no ‘one size fits all’. In order to make a sustainable change to a healthier eating plan, all aspects of a person’s life must be taken into account. A working mom with kids at school does not have the same amount of time for food planning and preparation compared to a stay-at-home mom. It is the role of the dietitian to help tailor an eating plan that is healthy – as well as practical, affordable and do-able for the individual.”
