Watch out for these four nutrition, health, and wellness trends in your kitchen cupboards in the New Year
By Kelly Malley, Director of Nestlé Nutrition, Health and Wellness Center of Excellence
After decades of staying on the cutting edge of food, I’ve learned that the world of nutrition moves fast. Now, I lead a team of nutrition and wellness professionals at Nestlé, helping to design new foods and beverages to give you the foods you love with the nutrition you crave.
The hummus is a hit at the Teaching Kitchen at the Children’s Museum in Denver. Is it the ratio of garlic to lemon? The chunky consistency? Nel Nelson of Aurora, Colorado, who often brings his children and nieces to the museum’s Teaching Kitchen, has his own theory: “The kids get to smash the ingredients with a pestle,” he says. Something about pint-size chefs having a good time just makes food taste better.

Caring for our team members and our communities is part of who we are. In honor of Giving Tuesday, I wanted to share a few of the ways Tyson Foods and our team members are giving back to the causes we care about.
As the largest food processing company in the U.S., Tyson Foods supports hunger relief in a big way. In 2015, we put a stake in the ground when we pledged $50 million in cash and in-kind donations over a five-year period to fight hunger. That pledge is known as the “50-in-5” commitment.
We are thrilled to welcome Robert Lee, Co-Founder and CEO of Rescuing Leftover Cuisine for a special Thanksgiving week episode. Rescuing Leftover Cuisine is a national nonprofit that targets both the prevention of quality food waste and putting an end to hunger. In the United States alone, 40 percent of food gets tossed every year and on average, 1,160 pounds of food are lost to the garbage pail each year by an American family of four.

Are you a flexitarian? We’ve checked off your flavor and nutrition needs.

For many people, a meal without meat isn’t a meal, but a growing number of consumers are choosing to enjoy it less often, as part of a ‘flexitarian’ diet that is healthier for them and better for the planet.
The diet is no fad. A 2017 study found that 69% of Germans, for example, and 38% of Americans eat meatless meals once a week or more. Global plant-based foods sales are set to hit USD $5bn by 2020, versus USD $3.1bn now.
