    Chris Rudd NHd Editor

    The NHD Team would like to thank Chris Rudd for all her work, help and advice over the years. Her role as Editor, and Clinical Editor before that, has enabled NHD to forge forward, providing our readers with informative articles from experts in their field and giving the magazine a true dietetic focus. We wish Chris all the best in her retirement.

    Welcome to issue 111 and i do hope that the new year has been a happy and healthy one so far.

    Many of you may be busy planning for the Nutrition and Hydration week from 14-20 March and I do hope that some of you will be entering into the record breaking world cream tea party on Wednesday 16 March. 2016 for NHD also offers you exciting developments. In a new column from the Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition Group (PENG) of the British Dietetic Association (BDA), Chair, Anne Holdoway shares PENG: because support and influence matter, providing us with an overview of the plethora of projects that are being undertaken by the PENG Committee, Clinical Leads and members. One of PENGs resources is the Managing Adult Malnutrition in the Community guide and pathway and that links nicely with another article by Kirstine Farrer that informing us of a pioneering non-medical, non-intrusive tool that is helping health and social care professionals to identify people at risk of malnutrition and signpost them to information and advice. Find out all about it in Malnutrition in the elderly: identifying and signposting with the PaperWeight Armband. Issue 111 takes us through all the major life stages from pregnancy, infant feeding, adult allergies and into elderly nutrition. We cover obesity too, with Kaylee Allans article on Feeding critically ill obese patients which gives us a review of the available evidence and

    summarises key points to consider when assessing the nutritional requirements in the critical ill obese. If you are interested in adult food allergy, Dr Isabel Skypala tells us more in Food Allergy in Adults, while keeping with the allergy theme, in our paediatric section we also revisit Infant milk intolerance and allergy: are you sure? by Emma Coates. Another new section starting in this issue is IMD Watch - in association with the NSPKU. We welcome Kit Kaalund Hansen, the first NHS funded Ketogenic Dietitian for adults with epilepsy in the UK and her article Epilepsy and Ketogenic Diet Therapy: Managing expectations in patients will tell you more. Finally, as I reflect back over the years, I joined NHD at Issue 41 and have seen the magazine grow and develop over those years. Now is the time for me to say Goodbye as I sign off from NHD. I would like to say an enormous thank you to all of you who have accepted my invitation to write for us - there have been seven years of excellent articles. My thanks also go to the NHD Team for their support. Emma Coates will take over from me from the next issue, so please look out for her invitations to you to write for NHD. I wish you all well and please enjoy our magazine and all the resources on offer for years to come. I feel that I know many of you, so do keep in touch and let me know of all the great work that you are doing.

    Chris Rudds career in continuous dietetic service has spanned 35 years. She is now working part time with the Sheffield PCT Medicines Management Team, as a Dietetic Advisor.

    In the US, new dietary guidelines are required under the 1990 National Nutrition Monitoring and Related Research Act, which specifies that every five years, the US Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS) and of Agriculture (USDA) must publish a joint report containing nutritional and dietary information and guidelines for the lay public. This report itself must be based on current scientific and medical evidence. Based on these requirements, the new 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans were released this January. These have been developed for policymakers and health professionals and relate to how the general public, aged two years and older, can improve their overall eating patterns. The guidelines provide five main overarching points developed with the intention of helping to encourage individuals make shifts in their food and beverage patterns. These are to: 1) Follow a healthy eating pattern across the lifespan; 2) Focus on variety, nutrient density, and amount; 3) Limit calories from added sugars and saturated fats and reduce sodium intake; 4) Shift to healthier food and beverage choices, and 5) Support healthy eating patterns for all. Within these, it is also specified that a healthy eating pattern both includes and limits the inclusion of certain foods. These recommendations are shown below.
