During these past couple of months, campus has been full of prospective freshman touring the campus and attending orientation. Last weekend I was able to take part in an orientation for incoming freshman where myself and Jenna Channel, another Healthy UNH intern, talked to new students about what Healthy UNH is and what we do on campus. While talking to a lot of these new students, a HUGE concern was gaining the “freshman fifteen” and how to be healthy once they were on campus.

I spend last weekend in Edinburgh, Scotland. If your geography skills are subpar, Scotland is north of England.  Scotland, though still part of Britain and consequently the United Kingdom, Scotland is quite different from England. It is sort of like England’s Canada, in my opinion; cold, less people, but better food. The food is better; however the food in England is pretty bad, so better is still not good.

Prawn is something I had not seen before arriving here in London. I came across it in places you would expect such as on pasta or in a stir fry or fried, but I also came across it in unexpected places such as in a salad on a sandwich and as a flavoring on crackers and chips. I wanted to see what the hullabaloo was about.

You’ve probably seen the merch around campus: stickers, t-shirts, buttons and more with the “eat more kale” slogan stamped on the center. You may have even heard of the lawsuit last year when Chick-fil-A insisted the kale slogan was too similar to their “Eat Mor Chikin” campaign (lest people start eating kale instead of chicken!). The hearty green has received a lot of attention over the past few years. It’s one of my favorite foods, and I encourage everyone to make it part of their diet.

There has always been a ton of focus put on different mainstream diets. Everything from Atkins and Southbeach to paleo and being a vegan are attempted by people worldwide. While I was scrolling through my twitter the other day killing time, I noticed someone posted something about this new thing called "Eating Clean." Since I have never heard of this before, I was intrigued and decided to figure out what eating clean was.

Originally I planned on writing a blog about food labels because they are quite different here in England. I found a few sites about the regulations but they were very dry and I could not imagine writing anything overly thrilling with such dry material. After becoming frustrated I began looking into foods that are banned here in the UK. While on the quest for this information I came across a fascinating company that uses “past-sell-date” foods. This immediately intrigued me so I had to read more. This is one of the most exciting aspects of researching for a blog article.

The average full-time employee in the United States works 30 hours or more per week. That adds up to a lot of time spent in the workplace each year! While many people take steps to create a healthy living space at home it can be challenging to stay healthy while at work. While it might not be possible to control where you work, there are steps you can take in order to try and stay healthy while on the job.

This week is National Public Health Week, an annual celebration of public health sponsored by the American Public Health Association (APHA). Today’s theme is “Providing a Safe Environment for Children at School”. Children spend 180 days in school every year. The lessons and habits children gain during this time influence the rest of their lives. Our nation’s children develop eating habits through the National School Lunch program, which feeds more than 31 million children each day.

Easter is right around the corner, which means it is time for Easter Basket creation. Children love receiving Easter Baskets, and many families celebrate it as a tradition for Easter morning. Easter treats can still be enjoyed, but try to look beyond the stocked shelves of Peeps and Chocolate Bunnies this year and consider healthy alternatives to usual Easter candy. One Cadbury Solid Milk Chocolate Easter Bunny, a popular Easter treat, contains 890 calories, and 48.6 grams of fat!
