Whole grain session at the Dubai International Congress of Nutrition

Honored to have been invited by the American Society of Nutrition to speak at the Dubai International Congress of Nutrition last week. In my two presentations, I talked about how whole grains can impact cardiometabolic health and the importance of whole-grain intake for global health. Did you know that low intake of whole grains and high intake of sodium are the two most important dietary risk factors for NCD morbidity and mortality globally?

Food Trend College Alcohol

Is there such a thing as healthy alcohol consumption? I was invited to give a lecture on this topic at the Food Trend College on alcohol organized by HAS Den Bosch. Interesting discussions with the students and representatives from the alcohol industry on whether alcohol sales or marketing should be regulated!

 

Science Cafe Sugar

Is sugar as dangerous as is sometimes claimed? Is it addictive? How can we reduce intake of added sugar? I was invited to discuss these and many other questions on sugar in this Science Cafe in Tivoli Utrecht together with with prof. Jaap Seidell and prof. Susanne la Fleur.

WEVO meeting 2017, Amsterdam

Proud of Anh Nhi Nguyen, who presented her work on diet quality in childhood at the WEVO meeting today in Amsterdam. She presented our finding that none of the over 4000 children we studied in Rotterdam meet all Dutch dietary guidelines. Most eat enough fruit but also too many sugar-containing beverages.

Lead Your Future Kick-off event

I was invited as panel member at the Lead Your Future kick-off at Erasmus University. A great initiative to coach 5000 young women (starting already at high-school!) on their careers. So honored to be part of this event! #girlpower
