A Double Burden on our Emerging Economies

The obesity epidemic has received much attention in recent decades, particularly in high-income countries, and with good reason.

Nutrition in the Workplace is a Winning Solution During and Post-COVID-19

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) highlights the importance of good nutrition before, during and after an infection. While no foods or dietary supplements can prevent a COVID-19 infection, maintaining a nutritious diet is important to supporting a healthy immune system to fight infections. In addition, the World Health Organization (WHO) states that a well-balanced diet is critical to receive the essential vitamins, minerals, fiber, protein and anti-oxidants the body needs to be in good health and build a strong immune system to lower the risk of chronic illnesses and infectious diseases. Therefore, a nutritious diet is important for all age groups throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Boosting Egg Production to Reduce Malnutrition in Malawi

On a quiet morning in rural Mchinji, a small district in Malawi, Grace wakes up and walks over to the house she constructed just a year ago. She inspects her 1,200 chickens carefully – they are all hale and healthy! It will soon be time for their breakfast – a specially formulated meal with the right mix of carbohydrates, protein, vitamins and minerals so they can lay healthy and fresh eggs. All of this is thanks to the egg hub – a  Maeve, Lenziemill and Sight and Life project that aims to increase the income of farmers like Grace by providing high quality and affordable inputs, credit, training, and access to markets; as well as increase availability and affordability of eggs in Malawi. 

EPC Where are they now? Part II

The Elevator Pitch Contest (EPC), founded by Sight and Life, is a competitive platform for students and young professionals to present their innovative ideas in front of a distinguished team of experts, investors, and the nutrition science community. It is an interactive approach whereby an entrepreneur must boil down their concept into a precise and persuasive pitch in order to spark interest from potential financiers – a critical part of the entrepreneurial process as competition for research and investment funds increases.

Eggs and EGG-sternalities

On August 6th, at the 2019 Asian Congress of Nutrition in Bali, Sight and Life organized a symposium on the topic of eggs, which represents one of its flagship programs. The session entitled “Achieving Improved Nutrition in a Sustainable Way – The Case of Increased Egg Consumption” gathered experts in the field of nutrition, sustainable business models, environmental sustainability, science and research and was skillfully moderated by Dr Regina Moench-Pfanner (ibn360).

Changing the Standard: Why Multiple Micronutrient Supplements in Pregnancy are an Ethical Issue

On 9 July 1999, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations University (UNU) held a technical workshop at the UNICEF headquarters in New York to address widespread micronutrient deficiencies and high rates of anemia among pregnant women. Looking beyond iron and folic acid (IFA), the workshop designed a comprehensive prenatal supplement – or multiple micronutrient supplement (MMS) –that would be tested in effectiveness trials among pregnant women in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Thus, the United Nations International Multiple Micronutrient Antenatal Preparation – now commonly known by its acronym, UNIMMAP – was born.

The Beginnings of The Society for Implementation Science in Nutrition

The Society for Implementation Science in Nutrition (SISN) began on a wintery, New York evening in February, 2014.

A Jump-Start into the World of Nutrition

On June 7th, 2018, only three-days after starting my summer internship with Sight and Life, I found myself on a long-haul flight traveling to Boston, Massachusetts, from Switzerland. I was invited to join the Sight and Life team at the American Society for Nutrition’s (ASN) Nutrition 2018 conference – what an incredible opportunity! I could not have been more excited for this perfect introduction into the world of nutrition, particularly since I am interested in applying my current academic background in economics and law to the field of nutrition.

For all devoted to nutrition.
