Hello,We are working on a grant to get a walk in freezer in one of our elementary schools. I know that nowadays the belief is that canned produce has similar nutrition value as frozen (with the exception of sodium content). When I went to school, we learned that fresh was best, frozen was better and canned was okay. Is there still debate over this? We are looking for ammunition for another reason why we need a walk-in freezer…Thanks,Grennan SimsDistrict DietitianHickman Mills C-1 SchoolsKansas City, MO

how come Vinegar isn;t included in the condiment lists?

Friday, May 15th, 2009
I assume that you are referring to “The Well-Stocked Pantry” link on our website. While vinegar may be used as a condiment for some dishes, we chose to include vinegars as a separate section due to the fact that there are many types that can be used in a variety of ways.

i dont eat a lot of carbs and have switched from using table sugar to splenda. in doing so my sugar went from the low 70′s fasting to 100 exact. Is the splenda the reason for the increase in sugar levels? I have not changed anything else in my diet.

Splenda should not cause an increase in your blood sugar levels. If your fasting levels have increased first thing in the morning, you may need to adjust your night time foods and insulin. Please seek the help of your doctor or dietitian. You can find a dietitian in your area here.
