TRENDS ON NUTRITION : A Paradigm Shift

INTRODUCTION

The Hospitality Industry plays a vital role in the Nurtition of our society specifically the Food and Beverage Industry. It caters to all kinds of people, rich or poor, single or married, male or female, individual consumer or family, it has no limit. With the new life style of today’s world, where both parents are working, high demand of work hours and hectic schedules, people tend to divert in fastfood products than cooking at home. This resulted somehow to create health problems of the cumsumers since not everyone in the Food and Beverage Industry is concern about the food they are serving. However, most of them value profit first and unconcious over the health benefits of the food products.

Nutrition is a language of healthy life, proper diet and wellness of everyone. The advocacy of “Health is Wealth” is in every corner of the world but sad to note that the number of malnutrition in the Philippines alone, is increasing. According to statistics, under Poverty, Children and Health (Inquirer.net)malnutrition increased from 2005 to 2008, the prevalence of underweight children aged 0-5 years increased from 24.6 percent to 26.2 percent, about 3.35 million children. Another problem that concerns nutrition, is the rampant obesity. Obesity is more of a life and death issue than simply looking “bad.” Obese people are much more higher to develop diabetes type 2 and if not given extra attention will also cause a more servere diseases or simply complicates ones health. Malnutrition and obesity are just few of the health problems our society are facing now adays. We have the growing breast cancer problems, colon cancers, strokes that kills over 150,000 Americans a year, making it the number 3 killer (www.vegetarian-nutrition.info/updates/trends.php), food-borne illness, anemia and many other more. The above mentioned diseases are either hereditary or acquired by nature. But the emphasis is whether one is consuming healthy and nutritious food or otherwise, if neglected, will definitely pass on to the next generations. Nevertheless with the new Trends of Nutrition, this will help both the Food and Beverage Industry and consequently the society will understand the value or the need to be health awareness. To be aware of the food being consumed whether in a fastfood chains, restaurants, caferetia’s or any food establishments. The nutritionists never stop planning and researching new things, new functional foods and beverages that provides benefits to the consumers. And with their deep concern of humanity, they never stop promulgating that indeed “health is wealth” and everyone should take action now.
