The Trinidad and Tobago Associa-
tion of Nutritionists and Dietitians
(TTANDi ) continues its thrust to pro-
mote nutrition awareness with its new
cookbook, Delicious and Healthy-
Cooking with Caribbean Foods.
Through this publication the associ-
ation hopes to achieve greater success
in its mission "to fight the fat, shrink
the salt and slash the sugar."
Delicious and Healthy-Cooking with
Caribbean Foods is not your typical
cookbook. Caribbean foods are used in
both traditional and innovative ways.
The recipes have been designed for use
by healthy people who want to prevent
chronic diseases such as obesity, dia-
betes, cardiac diseases, hypertension
and cancer as well as for people who
are already challenged by them, TTANDi
said in a news release. It noted that
healthy eating lowers the risk of these
The book contains a wide range of
recipes in which calories, fat, sugar and
salt have been reduced to an acceptable
level without impairing taste or texture,
but remain surprisingly delicious despite
the reductions, TTANDi said. Each
recipe has been analysed for selected

month at Nalis, Port-of-Spain also con-
tains information about the relationship

but more could be done to promote and
improve the nutritional status of all
individuals regardless of age or lifestyle.
One strategy which TTANDi uses to
further its cause is the observance of
nutrition awareness day, week and
month during June. National Nutrition
Awareness Week (NNAW) is recognised
during the first week in June annually.
NNAW is geared towards sensitising
the public about nutrition and related
concerns in communities and the
In the last three decades TTANDi
has planned and implemented weekly
nutrition awareness observances either
annually or biannually in collaboration
with other healthcare providers and
stakeholders from other sectors.
The Caribbean Food and Nutrition
Institute (now defunct) in 2005 imple-
mented Caribbean Nutrition Day which
is observed on June 1 annually. This
year s observance is themed "Healthy
eating, active living---Let s fight the fat,
shrink the salt, slash the sugar."
TTANDi is comprised of members
who are employed full-time or part-
time in the health sector-mainly in public
or private hospitals and primary care
community clinics (health centres).
Members also come from the food
industry, manufacturing, education and
research sectors as well as regional and
international organisations. TTANDi has
been in the business of promoting health
for the past 30 years. Its mission is to
encourage professional excellence among
its members and to increase public
awareness of the importance and role
of nutrition in promoting good health.

beyond the usual recommendation to eat small, lower-food-chain fish like sardines, and instead delve full force
