Adequate intake of vitamin A during lactation is very crucial due to its eff ect on retinol levels in breast milk. This study was aimed to analyze the changes in food consumption and vitamin A intake of lactating mothers in moment and three months after giving birth. This study used a cohort design for 3 months involving 295 breastfeeding mothers. Subjects were selected according to inclusion criteria including mother with normal labour and full term month normally and term, have a baby with normal birth weight, and maximum of a third parity. A 2x24 hour food recall questionnaire was used to determine nutrient intake and a food frequency questionnaire to determine the consumption habits of sources of vitamin A. The Wilcoxon test and paired t test were used in this study. The results of study showed that the most frequently consumed vegetables both shortly and three months after childbirth were tomatoes, 65% and 73.9% respectively. Most frequently consumed fruits were mangoes, 18.3% and 13.6%. While the most frequently consumed animal source foods were eggs, 68.1% and 79.7%, respectively. Among the consumption of vitamin A sources foods, only the consumption of tomatoes, milk, and cooking oil were found increase signifi cantly in three months after delivery (p 0.05). It is necessary to increase the consumption of vitamin A food sources, especially during lactation to increase the content of vitamin A in breast milk to meet the needs of newborns and prevent vitamin A defi ciency both in mother and baby

Physical fi tness is the ability of each individual to carry out various daily activities without feeling fatigue. Physical fi tness is useful as a supporting capacity for the physical activity of children therefore it is expected to improve their health and achievement. Factors that infl uence physical fi tness include genetics, age, gender, physical activity, nutritional status, food intake, haemoglobin level, resting time and smoking habits. The purpose of this study was to analyze the risk factors of physical fi tness among female students in Muhammadiyah 1 Ponorogo High School. This case control study included 50 female students and divided into 25 cases and 25 controls. Chi-Square test was used to analyze the relationships between variables. The results showed that there was an association between protein adequacy (p=0.023) OR = 11.3 and haemoglobin levels (p=0.049) OR = 9.3 with physical fi tness. While the adequacy of iron (p=0.345) did not associated with physical fi tness. Student with low protein adequacy and haemoglobin level have respectively 11.3 and 9.3 times higher risk of having low physical fi tness than student with good protein adequacy and haemoglobin level.

Obesity is caused by several factors. Gut microbiota composition is known to be one of the factors to play a role in modulating the obesity process. Nutrient factors and bioactive compounds from food can infl uence and help in modifying the gut microbiota composition, especially Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes. The purpose of this article is to discuss how signifi cant the role of nutrients and other bioactive compounds on Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes ratio in solving the obesity problem. This article was compiled based on the literature search in the last ten years, related to nutrients and bioactive compounds infl uence Firmicutes/Bacteroidetes ratio in obesity. The results from several literature searches provided evidence that alteration in gut microbiota composition was linked to the increase of body weight through metabolic pathways, which was characterized by the increasing number of Firmicutes, the decreased number of Bacteroidetes, and an increase in Firmicutes/Bacteroidetes ratio. The increasing number of Firmicutes could induce short-chain fatty acid (SCFA) production and lead to more energy harvesting. Several dietary factors from fi ber and amino acid, as well as bioactive compounds from an organic acid and polyphenol compounds, could infl uence the gut microbiota composition by reducing the Firmicutes level and increasing Bacteroidetes. The gut microbiota composition, especially Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes, could be induced by modifying diet enriched with fi ber, polyphenol compounds, and other specifi ed nutrients

The provision of nutrition care process (NCP) in diabetes mellitus (DM) patients is very important in determining the patient's diet to control blood glucose and to prevent complications. This study aimed to determine the diff erences in levels of intake and blood glucose levels before and after the implementation of NCP for type 2 DM (T2DM) inpatients of RSUD Dr. Saiful Anwar Malang. The design of this study was cross sectional, using secondary data sources from 32 patient medical records consisting of data on age, gender, nutritional status, complications of disease, nutritional diagnosis, nutritional intervention, energy intake, and blood glucose level. The analysis test used was the T-test dependent test on the normal data distribution and the Wilxocon test on the abnormal data distribution. The results of this study indicate a diff erence in the level of after and before intake (p = 0.020) with an increase in the average intake of 65.75 ± 18.23% to 75.50 ± 17.69% of the total energy needs. The analysis of blood glucose before and after showed p = 0.023, which means that there were diff erences in blood glucose before and after the NCP implementation. Blood glucose results showed an average decrease of 205 ± 93.85 mg/dl to 155.9 ± 50.53 mg/dl. The results of this study showed that there were diff erences in levels of energy intake and blood glucose levels before and after the provision of NCP by dietitians/nutritionists.

Degradation of sport performance in Indonesian athletes was recorded in Sea Games 2017 and FIFA rank in 2015. Some of athletes’ main problem are lack of stamina and endurance. These problem are caused by insuffi cient carbohydrate and energy intake. In addition, selection of tofu curd waste and banana are purposed to provide adequate potasium intake. This study was aimed to reveal the eff ect of bean curd waste and the addition of Ambonese bananas to the acceptability, nutritional value and economic value of the formulated snack bars.The used design was true experiment with completely randomized design. This study employed untrained panelists including athletes with weight restrictions (gymnastics and sports combat with weight classes) as many as 30 people.The percentage of bean curd waste substitution was P1: 12%; P2: 16%; P3: 25%, and 10% added banana. Statistical test results Friedman confi rmed a signifi cant diff erence in the level of preference on the texture and taste aspects between control and other formula. The results of the acceptability, nutritional value and economic value ranking obtained the optimum value in formula two (P2).Nutritional value for 100 grams of snack bar P2 (cohydrate: 41.6 g; fi ber: 8.7 g; potassium: 514 mg) has been able to contribute at least 10% of the daily energy needs of athletes. Laboratory test results for fi ber and potassium can meet 16.7% and 10.9% of the daily needs of athletes. Hence, formulated snack bar can be claimed to be high in fi ber and potassium products. The most aff ordable price of the formulated product was 7,000 IDR per 125 g which is more economical than the commercial soybean-based snack bar. Therefore, the formulated snack bar can be recommended as a complementary meal of athlete with weight restrictions.

Obesity causes low-grade chronic infl ammation. Adiponectin is an anti-infl ammatory cytokine. Increased waist circumference in obesity infl uences pro-infl ammatory and anti-infl ammatory cytokine levels which increase the risk of metabolic complications. This study was a cross-sectional study conducted at the Nutrition and Metabolic Diseases Clinic of Children's Hospital Dr. Soetomo, Surabaya. Subjects were chosen consecutively as many as 59 obese adolescents with inclusion criteria: obesity, aged 13-16 years, and having parents / guardians who were willing to follow the research and exclusion criteria: taking drugs, such as dyslipidemia, getting hormone therapy, suff ering from secondary obesity , suff ers from endocrine abnormalities, and has an infection or infl ammatory disease. Anthropometric examination was performed on subjects, including body weight, height, and waist circumference. Body Mass Index (BMI) is measured by weight calculation (kg) divided by height squared (meters) and plotted into the CDC 2000 curve. Obesity is established if a Body Mass Index/Age (BMI/A) >P95 is obtained according to age and sex on the CDC 2000 curve. Adiponectin levels are examined using venous serum with ELISA. The relationship between waist circumference and adiponectin levels was analyzed by Pearson correlation. 59 subjects were included in this study. The mean of waist circumference and adiponectin were 100.18 ± 10.63 cm and 7,84 ± 3,81 μg / ml. Statistic test showed that there is no correlation between waist circumference and adiponectin levels in obese adolescents (p>0,05). There is no correlation between waist circumference and adiponectin levels in obese adolescents. Factors that aff ect the correlation between waist circumference and adiponectin include race, diet and physical activity
