ADA Participates in Global Theme Issue on Poverty and Human Development

The Journal of the American Dietetic Association is participating in the Council of Science Editors Global Theme Issue on Poverty and Human Development. This international collaboration has brought together more than 230 journals from both developed and developing countries to simultaneously publish papers that raise awareness, stimulate interest and encourage research into the effects of poverty on human development.

The Journal has devoted its entire November issue to the theme, contributing 15 original research articles as well as editorial commentary. Collectively, the Global Theme Issue includes new original research, review articles, editorials, perspectives, news stories and other articles.

In keeping with the Global Theme Issues spirit of collaboration and outreach, the Journal has designated all research articles in the November issue as open access, meaning that they are freely available to both ADA members and non-members alike through the Journals Web site at www.adajournal.org.


Can Low-Income Families Afford to Eat Recommended Amounts of Fruits and Vegetables"

According to researchers at the University of California Davis, important cost barriers exist for low-income consumers who want to eat according to the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

To determine if price is a barrier to fruit and vegetable consumption for low-income families, the researchers compared the average cost of a selection of fruits and vegetables based on the 1995 Dietary Guidelines Thrifty Food Plan to a market basket from the 2005 Dietary Guidelines.

While the 2005 market basket cost 4 percent less than the 1995 Thrifty Food Plan, it would still require a low-income family to devote between 43 percent and 70 percent of its food budget to fruits and vegetables, according to the researchers.

Public policies should examine ways to make fruits and vegetables more affordable to low-income families, the researchers conclude.
