However, although the soft-drink intake is very minimal, there is a trending higher intake of sweetened milks, sweetened teas dan packaged juice in a daily or weekly bases. Based on age, then the amount and the percentage of SSB consumer age 10–17 years is higher as compared to the younger or older age.</p> Saptawati Bardosono Copyright (c) 2022 Saptawati Bardosono 2022-05-31 2022-05-31 5 S3 1 2 10.25220/WNJ.V05.S3.0001 Nutrition in Indonesia toddlers and preschools: understanding challenges and strategies <p>There is surely rapid development of toddler and preschool age children, especially related to human brain development. Poor development among under-five children in Indonesia in 2010 is ranged 40–59%. Global data shows that there is triple burden of malnutrition, and amongst improper behavior, the two highest clinical symptoms are hyperactivity and showing anger when displeased. This shows that children need nurturing care in which has its contribution through the life course.</p> Saptawati Bardosono Copyright (c) 2022 Saptawati Bardosono 2022-05-31 2022-05-31 5 S3 3 4 10.25220/WNJ.V05.S3.0002 Water quality and the impact to the health <p>Water is the major constituent of the human body. Water is essential for life and maintaining optimal levels of hydration is important for humans to function well. Water makes up a large proportion of our body weight, distributed between the intracellular (inside cells) and extracellular (water in the blood and in between cells) compartments. Water is the major component of body fluids, such as blood, synovial fluid (fluid in the joints), saliva and urine, which perform vital functions in the body. Human body cannot produce enough water by metabolism or obtain enough water by food ingestion to fulfil its needs. As a consequence, we need to pay attention to what we drink throughout the day to ensure that we are meeting our daily water needs, as not doing so may have negative health effects.</p> Diana Sunardi Copyright (c) 2022 Diana Sunardi 2022-05-31 2022-05-31 5 S3 5 6 10.25220/WNJ.V05.S3.0003 Covid-19, nutrition and pseudoscientific claims <p>The COVID‐19 infodemic is full of false claims, half backed conspiracy theories and pseudoscientific therapies, regarding the diagnosis, treatment, prevention, origin and spread of the virus.&nbsp;</p> <p>Correcting misrepresentations should be viewed as a professional responsibility</p> Abdolreza Norouzy Copyright (c) 2022 Abdolreza Norouzy 2022-05-31 2022-05-31 5 S3 7 7 10.25220/WNJ.V05.S3.0004 Strategy to fulfill fiber requirement in children <p>Diet in childhood influences not only the immediate health of children but also may have an impact in a positive or negative manner on the future health status. Dietary fiber has many physiological effects including reducing postprandial glucose concentrations, improving fecal bulk, promoting laxation, interfering with fat and cholesterol absorption, and altering bacteria populations in the gut microbiome. The first years of life may be critical for the establishment of a healthy colonic microflora, as well as good eating habits.</p> Diana Sunardi Copyright (c) 2022 Diana Sunardi 2022-05-31 2022-05-31 5 S3 8 9 10.25220/WNJ.V05.S3.0005 Findings from Nutriplanet: how ready are we for healthy aging? <p>Healthy aging has become one of the important focus in many countries. The World Health Organization and the United Nation have initiated The Healthy Aging Decade (2021 – 2030) which focus on collaborative efforts to reach healthy aging condition – a condition in which the senior population remains productive, has good quality of life and not become economic burden for the country. To reach this condition, one should put efforts as early as possible. In Indonesia, it is predicted that in 2040 there will be an increment in aging population. Pre-senior population (aged 45 – 60 years) will reach 17.5% and senior population (aged &gt;60 years) will reach 10.1%. These numbers will make Indonesia one of the countries with the highest senior population in the world.</p> Ray Wagiu Basrowi Copyright (c) 2022 Ray Wagiu Basrowi 2022-05-31 2022-05-31 5 S3 10 11 10.25220/WNJ.V05.S3.0006 Special Group Discussion: nutrition and Covid-19 comparison in several countries <p>Patients with COVID-19 who are in the ICU considered to be extremely high malnutrition, which is caused by food intake matter and the disease itself. In critically ill, the definition of malnutrition is not only based on weight loss but also muscle wasting, sarcopenia and metabolic dysregulation. Good nutrition management prevents malnutrition getting worse. Nutritional theraphy is an essential element of the patients management.&nbsp; Nutritional screening and assessment, as well as nutritional management, should be integrated into general therapeutic strategy.&nbsp; Nutrition theraphy to ICU patients with COVID-19 has been published by some institutions/organizations.</p> Luciana B Sutanto Copyright (c) 2022 Luciana B Sutanto 2022-05-31 2022-05-31 5 S3 12 13 10.25220/WNJ.V05.S3.0007 Coenzyme Q-10: a potential role in alleviating long Covid-19 symptoms <p>Globally, as of mid&nbsp; August 2021 there have been more than 200 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 reported to WHO. About 80% of COVID-19 cases are asymptomatic and mild, and most of the cases resolved within 2-4 weeks. While severe pneumonia and critical multi-organ failure occurs in 15% and 5% respectively, and can last for 3-6 weeks. The post-COVID symptoms, initially referred to as ‘long COVID’ or ‘long-haul COVID’, are now collectively referred to as ‘post-acute sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection” (PASC).</p> Juwalita Surapsari Copyright (c) 2022 Juwalita Surapsari 2022-05-31 2022-05-31 5 S3 14 15 10.25220/WNJ.V05.S3.0008 Feeding critically ill post Covid-19 patients <p>Currently, there has been no nutritional therapy guideline available for discharged Covid-19 patients in ICU. Only a small study which was carried in post Covid-19 patients in ICU reported the resting energy expenditure recorded were 20 kcal/kg/day. These number is similar with nutrition therapy recommendations for acute phase critically ill patients provided by ESPEN.</p> Niken Puruhita Copyright (c) 2022 Niken Puruhita 2022-05-31 2022-05-31 5 S3 16 16 10.25220/WNJ.V05.S3.0009 Clinical nutrition and human rights: an international position paper <p>Worldwide Societies for Clinical Nutrition have launched a promotional campaign that advocates for all patients to have access to food and evidence-based artificially administered nutrition and hydration (AANH). The campaign is supported by the simultaneous publication of a major position paper in, <em>Clinical Nutrition </em>and<em> Nutrition in Clinical Practice</em>, the official journals of the European and North American professional societies. The working group of experts in human rights and clinical nutrition, includes representatives of the American Society for Enteral and Parenteral Nutrition (ASPEN), The European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism (ESPEN), Latin American Federation of Nutritional Therapy, Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism (FELANPE), Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition Society of Asia (PENSA) and the West African Society of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (WASPEN).</p> Gil Hardy Copyright (c) 2022 Gil Hardy 2022-05-31 2022-05-31 5 S3 17 18 10.25220/WNJ.V05.S3.0010 Ethics and clinical nutrition practice challenge in Covid-19 patients <p>Covid-19, a disease caused by a novel coronavirus, became a major global human threat that has turned into a pandemic. Pandemics present difficult logistical, medical and ethical challenges to the medical workforce.

COVID-19 pneumonia is characterised by high fevers, increased energy utilisation and skeletal muscle catabolism. The delta variant has direct gastrointestinal effects resulting in diarrhoea, nausea, and vomiting. Combined these rapidly impair nutritional status. It is therefore important to quickly identify factors leading to feeding intolerance and manage them with a sense of urgency to prevent malnutrition during critical illness.</p> Marek Nalos Copyright (c) 2022 Marek Nalos 2022-05-31 2022-05-31 5 S3 20 20 10.25220/WNJ.V05.S3.0012 Healthy eating to maintain a healthy immune system in pandemic <p>COVID-19, caused by the coronavirus, is primarily spread during close contact such as touching and by fluid droplets produced through cough, sneeze or talk.

The main source of vitamin D from exposure to ultraviolet B radiation, whereas only 20% from natural and fortified food. Recent studies concluded that vitamin D has a putative role in reducing the risk of viral respiratory infection by suppressing pro-inflammatory cytokines and delaying increasing anti-inflammatory cytokines response. Whereas, vitamin D regulates innate immunity through macrophage and dendrite cell activity as well as an adaptive immune response through lymphocyte T cells response.</p> Nurul Ratna Mutu Manikam Copyright (c) 2022 Nurul Ratna Mutu Manikam 2022-05-31 2022-05-31 5 S3 30 30 10.25220/WNJ.V05.S3.0019 Value of fish oil in nutrition therapy in Covid-19 illness <p style="margin: 0cm; text-align: justify;"><span style="color: #111111;" lang="EN-GB">Our expertise in the medical treatment of COVID-19 infections has grown with time and experience, resulting in the development of a cohesive overall therapeutic strategy for control of the viral infection from supportive measures for mild to moderate illness, to the full range of relevant organ support in critical illness in ICU.
