Wagner et al., JHND Early View Background Novel and innovative imaging methods that rapidly estimate body fat percentage (%BF) are publicly available, yet little is known about their accuracy. The present study evaluated the test–retest reliability of a two‐dimensional iPad (Apple, Inc., Cupertino, CA, USA) application (2D APP) and a three‐dimensional body scanner (3D SCAN) for … Continue reading Discrepancies between 2D iPad applications, 3D body scanner and air displacement plethysmography for measurement of body fat
Associations of dietetic management with maternal and neonatal health outcomes in women diagnosed with gestational diabetes: a retrospective cohort study Absalom et al., JHND Early View Background In 2010, the recommended diagnostic thresholds for gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) were amended, which has increased GDM diagnoses, as well as pressure on the services involved in GDM … Continue reading Dietetic intervention plays a key role in optimising maternal and neonatal health outcomes for women with gestational diabetes
The impact of living with home enteral feeding: perspectives of people who have had a diagnosis of head and neck cancer Thomas et al., JHND Early View Background The number of people with head and neck cancer who are home enterally fed continues to grow each year.

Dietary intake of isoflavones is associated with a lower prevalence of subclinical cardiovascular disease in postmenopausal women: cross‐sectional study Ferreira et al., JHND Early View Background Menopause has been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. It has been shown that isoflavones protect vascular endothelial cells against induced oxidative stress injury. Therefore, the present study … Continue reading Dietary isoflavones are associated with a lower prevalence of subclinical cardiovascular disease in postmenopausal women
Impact of different exercise training modalities on energy and nutrient intake and food consumption in sedentary middle‐aged adults: a randomised controlled trial Jurado-Fasoli et al., JHND Early View Background Exercise could influence energy and macronutrient intake, which could have an important role on body composition changes in response to exercise. The present study aimed to investigate … Continue reading High-intensity training is associated with higher energy density food consumption in sedentary adults
A laboratory‐based evaluation of tube blocking and microbial risks associated with one blended enteral feed recipe Madden et al., JHND Early View Background Concerns associated with blended enteral feeds include the risk of blocked tubes and microbial contamination, although the available evidence is limited. The present laboratory‐based investigation aimed to examine these risks in a blended … Continue reading Lower risk of blockage, but no difference in bacterial contamination, using wider bore enteral feeding tubes.
The impact of home‐delivered meal services on the nutritional intake of community living older adults: a systematic literature review Walton et al., JHND Early View Background There is a global increase in populations aged over 65 years. Physiological changes that occur during ageing may increase the nutritional risk for older adults. To avoid malnutrition and address some … Continue reading Home delivered meals have a positive impact on nutrition in older adults
