The SDSU feed processing facility produces more than 1,250 tons of feed annually for the university’s livestock teaching and research facilities for beef, dairy, equine, sheep and swine. This equipment upgrade replaces two machines previously used in the feed processing facility. “This donation will help us to ensure that the quality of the feed we’re milling, in support of our educational and research units, is representative of current industry standards,” says Dr. Joseph Cassady, Animal Science Department Head. The new roller mill will allow feed to be milled at a higher quality and consistency, so livestock will achieve increased feed utilization. “The Lone Star roller mill is easy to use and maintain,” says John Goebel, SDSU feed processing facility manager. ”It’s very well built and allows for worry-free grain processing that needs little monitoring.” The SDSU feed processing facility employs SDSU students to assist with processing and packaging feed for the various educational and research units. A Lone Star representative initially proposed the donation. “We’re proud to be able to collaborate with SDSU on facilitating the means for students to have a state-of-the-art machine to process grains so they can understand how processed grains can influence the nutrition and health of animals,” says Brenda Bakken, CEO, Lone Star Enterprises. “It’s a good feeling to provide opportunities to local communities and South Dakota State University students.” Lone Star Enterprises is a family owned and operated company based in Lennox, S.D., with 13 employees. Lone Star has also donated a roller mill to the North Dakota State University feed processing facility. For more information about the SDSU Animal Science Department, visit their website here.

It’s some of the most valuable land in the world; every year, the agribusiness industry here produces billions of dollars’ worth of milk, vegetables and nuts. But the scale, and the industrial intensity, of agriculture require an enormous amount of groundwater to be pulled out of aquifers deep belowground — more than the industry can afford to pump, according to hydrologic modeling.

31 Farmers Digital Solutions 1-866-668-5565 • www.todaypublicationsfd.net August 2022 Harvest Blast Issue Adolescence is a transformative time. Not only does the body grow and develop, but children gain more control over their choices. And the food habits we develop as adolescents often continue. So, they can influence our health and food choices as adults. A food environment is where we make decisions about getting, preparing, and eating food. Food availability, price, and convenience all impact our choices. Cultural, political, and economic systems determine an area’s food environment. An adolescent can experience many food environments – at home, at school, and at work. We wanted to provide information to help the world improve the diets of adolescents. That’s why we used existing scientific research to answer two new questions: What do adolescents eat around the world? What factors influence these food choices? We then used our analysis to suggest how society can support adolescents to make better food choices. Мore free social science resources аt: www.ScienceJournalForKids.org Abstract Introduction Have you ever thought about why you eat what you eat? Is it because it’s tasty? Healthy? Trendy? There are many factors that influence what an adolescent eats. But health is not always the most important one. We wanted to better understand these factors. So we did a scientific review of surveys and studies to see what adolescents eat worldwide. We also explored how economic status and food environment affect food choices. We learned that many adolescents value food as a way to express their individuality. It also gives them a sense of belonging with their peers. We also discovered that limited access to healthy food is a problem in many areas. So are advertisements promoting unhealthy food. That is why countries all over the world need nutrition programs that make healthy food more available, affordable, and appealing to adolescents. The food a person buys depends on food availability, price, and convenience. Source: Wikicommons Authors: Lynnette M. Neufeld and others Associate Editors: Allison Gamzon and Marilisa Valtazanou What makes you choose the food you eat?

Farmers Digital Solutions 1-866-668-5565 • www.todaypublicationsfd.net August 2022 Harvest Blast Issue 32 Methods WHAT MAKES YOU CHOOSE THE FOOD YOU EAT? Question 1: Patterns in adolescent eating We explored three data sources: Large surveys of what adolescents eat in China, Mexico, and India over time. The Global School-based Student Health Surveys (GSHS) from 72 countries. A review of scientific and gray literature about dietary intake. This included information from 249 countries and territories from 2010 to 2020. Question 2: Factors that affect food choice We pooled and analyzed data from eleven scientific studies. These studies interviewed adolescents and adults from eight countries. They asked them: what factors influence their food choices, and what other things motivate them. We classified our findings based on the food environment: traditional, mixed, and modern. Results 1. Patterns in adolescent eating We learned that economic status influences what adolescents eat. Adolescents with more money eat more nutrient-rich foods. These foods include fruits, vegetables, dairy, meat and eggs. They also consume nutrient-poor foods like sugarsweetened beverages, fried foods, and sweets. Adolescents with less money eat fewer nutrient-rich foods. They also eat high-sugar and high-fat foods less often. The survey revealed that adolescent diets are very different around the world. It also showed that adolescents in only 2 of the 72 countries eat enough fruits and vegetables. But adolescents in most countries drink carbonated beverages at least once a day. They also eat fast food once a week on average. What do young people say are the most important factors for their food choices in each type of food environment? Traditional Environment High Importance Moderate Importance Low Importance None Mixed Environment High Importance Moderate Importance Low Importance None “We don’t get root vegetables or fruits that often...only once a month” (Girl, rural India) “Families don’t get to buy them always...even if they buy, I may feel like not eating these foods. We can’t buy mango, jackfruit all the time”. (Boy, urban Bangladesh) Modern Environment High Importance Moderate Importance Low Importance None “All your friends are having like, another chocolate bar or packet of crisps all the time, you’re gonna want to like buy a chocolate bar”. (Boy, urban UK) Desirable Convenient A ordable Available Figure 1: What young people from different food environments said determines their food choices.

33 Farmers Digital Solutions 1-866-668-5565 • www.todaypublicationsfd.net August 2022 Harvest Blast Issue WHAT MAKES YOU CHOOSE THE FOOD YOU EAT? Conclusion Becoming an adult means you have more control over what you eat. But what you eat also determines your current and future health. As you go through your day, think about what influences your food choices. Think about why you value your food. Is it to express your autonomy? Is it to fit in with your friends? Is it because someone online likes a particular food? Once you have figured it out, discuss it with a doctor or trusted adult. Think about ways that you can be yourself, feel like you belong, and eat healthy food. doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.19779076 Discussion Current food environments do not promote healthy food choices. In some mixed and modern environments, nutrientrich foods are more difficult to get. Nutrient-poor foods are easy to access, inexpensive, and highly advertised. In some traditional environments, poverty and food insecurity put adolescent health at risk. Many adolescents do not choose food based on how healthy it is. Instead, food is an important way to express uniqueness. It also provides a sense of belonging, since eating is often a social experience. That is why countries need policies and programs that enable and encourage healthy food. To do this, we need more research to find ways to make nutritious foods more appealing. Adolescents have a lot to say about why they eat what they eat and what will motivate them to make changes. That means we must involve them in the conversations to create food programs. Only then can we help them navigate towards a healthy and socially appealing diet. 2. Factors affecting food choice In all food environments, adolescents have the ability to make food decisions (autonomy). They also have the ability to act on those decisions (agency). But the amount of autonomy and agency adolescents have differs among the environments, and this affects food choice (Fig.1). Traditional food environments Many traditional food environments are in areas experiencing extreme poverty and food insecurity. According to interviews, adolescents in this environment value eating with peers. But they don’t always have the chance to. That is because they often have other tasks taking up their time, including obtaining and preparing food. Mixed food environments Many adolescents in a mixed environment think of nontraditional foods, such as pizza, as a symbol of being modern. Some adults reported that their adolescents skip meals. Instead, they eat unhealthy snacks. But in many countries, adolescents still want to eat at home. That's because they think meals at home are safe and healthy. Modern food environments Adolescents in a modern environment have a lot of autonomy and agency. Many of them purchase a lot of their own food. Advertisements for nutrient-poor foods are also a characteristic of this food environment. Studies show that social media plays a big role in promoting unhealthy foods. Social media also tags vegan and vegetarian diets as healthy. While this is sometimes true, all people need to be careful to eat a balanced, nutritious diet. This is especially true for adolescents.
