Supplemental nutrition shakes contain more than just healthy ingredients. "You may be getting more sugar than any of the other ingredients," says Stacey Nelson, a dietitian from Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital. "But if you can't eat and that's the only food that's palatable, it's better to get the calories." Dr. Salamon agrees. "In that case, substituting one meal a day with a drink won't hurt." Both experts warn that people who can still eat may be risking too many extra calories by consuming the drinks. That can lead to weight gain and a list of complications associated with obesity, such as high blood pressure and diabetes.
18 September 2017 -- This year’s edition of The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World marks the beginning of a new era in monitoring the progress made towards achieving a world without hunger and malnutrition, within the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Specifically, the report will henceforth monitor progress towards both the targets of ending hunger (SDG Target ) and all forms of malnutrition (SDG target ). It will also include thematic analyses of how food security and nutrition are related to progress on other SDG targets.
