This study assessed associations between ultraprocessed food consumption and dietary nutrient profile linked to obesity in children and adolescents in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, the United Kingdom, and the United States using nationally representative data collected between 2004 and 2014. Linear regression models were us...
Conference Paper
Background Worldwide consumption of ultra-processed foods is continued to rise. Growing evidence has linked ultra-processed food consumption with elevated risks of obesity, non-communicable diseases, and mortality in adults.

Objectives. Gender continues to be largely neglected in the global response to the noncommunicable disease epidemic. The objectives of this study were to examine current practice and barriers faced by Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) researchers in addressing gender in research on healthy food environments, and to identify future topics for gende...
Article
Background: Vitamin D status in pregnancy may influence the risk of prematurity, birth size, and child postnatal growth, but few studies have examined the relationship among pregnant women living with HIV. Methods: We conducted a prospective cohort study of 257 HIV-infected mothers and their HIV-exposed uninfected infants who were enrolled in th...

Almost all foods are processed to some extent, if only by preservation, and it is therefore unhelpful to criticise foods as being ‘processed’. A number of food classifications have been devised that pay special attention to types of processing. A systematic review has shown that, of these, NOVA is the most specific, coherent, clear, comprehensive and...

Article
Background: Combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) has allowed youth with perinatal HIV infection (PHIV+) to live into adulthood, but many youth may experience metabolic and body composition changes that predispose to greater cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. This longitudinal study evaluated changes in body composition measured by dual x-ray...
Article
Introduction: HIV-exposed, uninfected (HEU) infants are potentially at risk for cardiovascular disease due to in utero exposures. Feeding practices of the infant could compound this risk. However, few studies have evaluated dietary intake of HEU infants. We determined dietary factors associated with rapid weight gain (RWG) among HEU infants from b...
Article
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease is a worldwide problem of great magnitude. Nutrition and nutritional care are central, yet complex, in the management of this disease. The spectrum of nutritional conditions in HIV range from malnutrition, to gastrointestinal malabsorption, to hypermetabolism, to macro- and micronutrient deficiencies, to o...
Article
We determined factors associated with diet quality and assessed the relationship between diet quality, birth weight, and gestational age in a prospective national multicenter cohort study. We evaluated diet quality with the Healthy Eating Index (HEI, scale 0–100) in the third trimester of pregnancy with three 24-hr multiple-pass dietary recalls in...

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infected youth are healthier due to effective antiretroviral therapies (ARVs). We compared anthropometric measurements and prevalence of overweight and obesity between perinatally-HIV-infected youth, a local HIV-uninfected comparison group and 2007-2010 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) dat...
Article
Objective: To compare growth and body composition of uninfected children exposed to HIV with a contemporary HIV-unexposed group and to US references. Study design: Uninfected children exposed to HIV under 2 years were enrolled into a longitudinal observational study and unexposed children under 2 years of age in a cross-sectional evaluation. Wei...

Food insecurity, micronutrient deficits, dyslipidemia, insulin resistance, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and bone disorders complicate the treatment of HIV infection. Nutrition and exercise interventions can be effective in ameliorating these symptoms that are associated with HIV and antiretroviral therapy (ART). In this literature review, we ex...
Article
Abstract Obesity, sedentary lifestyles, and antiretroviral therapies may predispose HIV-infected children to poor physical fitness. Estimated peak oxygen consumption (VO(2) peak), maximal strength and endurance, and flexibility were measured in HIV-infected and uninfected children. Among HIV-infected children, anthropometric and HIV disease-specifi...
Chapter
Nutritional surveillance is central to the care of all children because of the national propensity for childhood obesity and metabolic complications. Sound nutritional advice should be given at the earliest times in life, even prenatally, as healthy nutritional practices instituted at an early age are likely to be the most sustainable over the life...
Article
: We compared biomarkers of vascular dysfunction among HIV-infected children to a demographically similar group of uninfected children and determined factors associated with these biomarkers. : We measured several biomarkers of vascular dysfunction: C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin-6 (IL-6), and monocyte chemoattractant protein -1 (MCP-1) (inf...

Medical advances continue to change the face of human immunodeficiency virus- acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS). As life expectancy increases, the number of people living with HIV rises, presenting new challenges for the management of a chronic condition. Aging, nutrition, and physical activity can influence outcomes in other chronic co...
Article
Nucleotides have been identified as conditionally essential nutrients. As prevention studies, conducted with nucleotide-supplemented formula, have shown statistically significant decrease in the risk of diarrhea, we tested the hypothesis that the consumption of nucleotide-supplemented formula during an acute diarrhea episode is associated with ther...
Article
Cardiometabolic problems in children with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection have recently begun to emerge as distinct clinical problems that require monitoring and often intervention. The cardiometabolic issues that face HIV-infected children include high rates of unfavorable lipid profiles, insulin resistance, cardiovascular inflammatio...

La canasta básica de alimentos (CBA) se elaboró para evaluar pobreza a nivel nacional, ajustada para cubrir los requerimientos de energía (E) y proteínas de la población. Las guías alimentarias y la pirámide alimentaria (PA) son instrumentos educativos, representando el ideal de consumo. No se conoce la relación entre ambos instrumentos. Objetivo:...
Article
Background: The basic food basket (BFB) has been developed to evaluate poverty and patterns of food consumption in many countries, including Chile.

Article
Recently it has been suggested that nucleotides should be added to infant dietary formula to promote stimulating effects on growth and maturation of the gastrointestinal tract as well as on the immune response. Objective: To compare the efficacy of nucleotide supplementation to an infant dietary formula, associated with oral rehydration therapy for...
Article
Recent studies have shown that probiotics, most commonly, may be useful in treating acute gastroenteritis. However, beneficial effects appear to be limited to a modest decrease in the duration of diarrhea. No studies have evaluated this therapy in moderate to severe dehydrating diarrhea in a metabolic facility. Male children less than 2 years of ag...
