Until recently, lawfully present noncitizens participating in the US Department of Agriculture Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly Food Stamps) faced no immigration consequences. However, in September, 2018, the Trump Administration proposed a more expansive public charge rule in the Federal Register that would deny lawfully present noncitizens a path to citizenship if they had participated in certain federal safety net programs, including Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. This perspective discusses the proposed rule's implications, particularly for those with professional interests in promoting effective nutrition education and healthy behavior through research, policy, and practice among individuals who will potentially be affected...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the relationship between school lunch timing (before vs after recess) on physical activity (PA) during recess and energy balance and food intake at lunch. METHODS: A cross-sectional study design was used to examine lunch intake and PA during recess among fourth- and fifth-graders (n = 103) over 5 school days. Lunch and PA were measured using a weighted plate waste technique and accelerometry, respectively. RESULTS: Children who received lunch before recess accumulated lower residual energy (ie, energy intake at lunch minus energy expenditure during recess) and consumed a greater proportion of milk servings...

Evidence-based walking programs exist and some have been tailored specifically for the national Cooperative Extension System; however, program outcomes and translational challenges and successes are underreported. This has presented a challenge to scaling the best-fit intervention for walking promotion within this national system. Here, we describe existing open-access walking programs as well as implications for improving the fit and sustainability of this intervention type within the system. Our experience provides suggestions for pragmatic data collection, infrastructure to support pragmatic data collection, and novel ways to disseminate best practices, as well as considerations for de-implementing what is not working...
