“Earlier protein powders were only consumed by men and sportswomen, but they also have a market now in women who frequent gyms and want to maintain lean bodies,” says the manager of a fitness store in Velachery, asking not to be named. Dheeraj Rajamohan, manager of Gold’s Gym at Adyar attributes the rise in consumption of such supplements (allied with focused physical exercise) to the universal desire of both men and women for athletic bodies. “More women today are leading active lifestyles, participating in athletics, playing tennis, swimming and so on, and they cross all professions. In the end, everybody wants to look good,” says Rajamohan. He says sports nutrition supplements marketed here now also portray women bodybuilders on the packaging, a clear play at the growing women’s market. Selena Mathew, an executive with a fashion retailer, says she recently included casein powder (a form of milk protein) in her daily diet to complement her gym routine.

Diabetes nutrition: Eating out when you have diabetes
in their efforts to combat childhood obesity and provide opportunities for students to learn about and practice healthy eating and physical activity behaviors. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and tripled in adolescents in the past 30 years. In 2010, more than one third of children and adolescents were overweight or obese. Serving healthy snacks to children is important to providing good nutrition, supporting lifelong healthy eating habits, and helping to prevent costly and potentially-disabling diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity. Whole Soul Nutrition is excited about providing healthy choices for children to help them through their school day.

Nutrition kicks the cigarette fix
It is likely that these larger status differences also have important implications for Indian childrens health and well-being, Ms. Coffey said. Recent research by Angus Deaton, Professor of Economics at Princeton University and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International affairs and leading global expert on poverty and nutrition in the developing world, has shown that Indian womens nutrition is undeniably not improving at the same pace as mens. Mr. Deaton has found that Indian mens heights are growing at nearly three times the rates of women and the gap is widening. I do not know how to explain this change other than through differential access to whatever improvements there have been in health or food or both, he said. While most of the discussion in India equates under-nutrition with under-weight, height is an important correlate of early life health; Indians are among the shortest people in the world.
