📢Sharing our new policy report on #UltraProcessedFoods in the diets of 👶👦👧 in the UK. Concerningly we find that #UPFs exist in all commercial baby & toddler food categories & among foods targeted at pre-schoolers. See… #BabyFood #ChildHealth #Nutrition Image
🥣 In particular a large proportion of commercial 'finger foods' (i.e. snacks) & baby cereals are #UPF. The true extent of ultra-processing of the foods marketed for 👶👦👧is probably underestimated as we rely on ingredient markers on product labels Image

The Austrian Health Minister argues with 25% increase of psychiatric conditions and suicidality in children and adolescents as a main reason to let the virus rip through the population (and crushing the health care system, causing many deaths/longterm illness). cc @DavidSteadson

Minimising the experience of children living with #LongCovid has an ongoing impact on those suffering.

"This is Daniel. He is 16 - LC for 16 months.
Due to ongoing stomach pains, he is scared of eating & now has an eating disorder too, skin & bone"

"This is Poppi. She is 7 - #PIMS March 21 after #Covid19, she was so poorly in @AlderHey for 2 weeks. Poorly ever since.
Reinfected in Feb 2022 at school - now worse than ever. Drs haven't a clue what's wrong with her I, want my little girl back"

Adverse Childhood Experiences have been talked about a lot, but not enough, not n relation to practical solutions

Adverse Childhood Experiences can be growing up with a mentally ill parent, or a parent who went to prison, or being beaten up or watching your mother being beaten up at home or being subjected to sexual abuse.

This is why I do long threads on racism in child & education spaces (child education up to #MedEd) and on the role of women to “protect” only some kids, not others. There is focus on police without looking at the full picture of sources of harm to children of color.
It is very very easy to focus on the Boston police Union leader

but who is it that..

helps him get access to children?
stays silent?
silences abused children?
promotes him?
seeks to please him (be promoted by him)?
sees him as a “good leader”?
softens his image?
protects him?
The role of men & women who police/silence those who would speak up... who prevent identifying the abuser

=extremely important

it is all on one spectrum: if you experience being denied food by a teacher as a 3-year old, will you speak up on abuse...

vs Stockholm Syndrome?

I state, highlight, mark up, not insinuate
Why is someone who likely does not menstruate a sudden expert on #womenshealth to identify a WOC seeking #data #quality & #integrity as the women?
"Respecting" social science = using respectable methods, not online surveys.
What you see in the tweet and the "study" is ego, defensiveness & flagrant Dunning-Kruger effect for #womenshealth, #menstrualhealth, #COVID19, #vaccine #research.

The best way to demonstrate the value of a field is to be consistent on #quality not…
Academic language on #online #survey #data:
"systematically assess carelessness in a crowdsourced sample" Denial that quick & dirty is poor #quality is an odd use of time & ineffective. One could better defend one's merit, by delivering #quality per best practices and standards.

Um bate-papo sobre brincadeira de criança.

Tem brincadeira de menino e de menina?

Quais as construções e desconstruções de gênero?

Pela psicóloga da #EquipeMaravilha Giovana Meinberg.
Nem sempre a gente entende que brincar deva ser levado a sério, assim como outras recomendações passadas por nós, profissionais de saúde, como cuidado para a saúde. Especialmente para as crianças.

A brincadeira ajuda no desenvolvimento cognitivo, social, emocional e motor.
Uma criança que é livre para brincar cresce com auto estima e se torna uma pessoa adulta mais confiante e criativa para lidar com os próprios problemas. Tem mais chances também de criar uma consciência mais crítica sobre o entorno e a se colocar no lugar do

(1/9) I was unable to share my thoughts on #HLMUHC #UNGA on day of, but will do so with tweetorial below & my @nytimes commentary "Reversal in Health Coverage":…

I also want to thank everyone for warm words of support: my mother is doing better day by day.
(2/9) It’s been a landmark event as #HLMUHC moved mountains with political attention for #Health4All #UHC and the adoption of the Political Declaration. As per my op-ed for @ghn_news, reduced financial commitment but inclusion of #SurgeryUHC now apparent:…
(3/9) Major congratulations for the important #ChildHealth event by @Smiletrain et al.: “quality surgical care is a driver & outcome of development” #SurgeryUHC

1.7 BILLION CHILDREN live without access to surgery. #UNGA #UNGA74, what about that future?…

We're presently #5 in teen birth rate (per @HHSGov), & the state ed #abstinenceonly policy seems tailor-made to make us #1 there. In fact, the stats say almost one-in-five of US births to girls <15 were right here in Texas. #winning 1/

Even as HIV/AIDS-related deaths have reached lowest level of this century, new @UNAIDS report… notes that we're NOT on track to reach 2020 global goals for reducing #HIV deaths.
We believe reductions in mortality cannot be taken for granted with treatment scale-up. Deaths must be tracked at the subnational, and program-level in order to ensure program performance. This is especially impt as we implement @WHO advanced HIV care guidelines and #diff care
To do this, we must step up efforts to trace lost patients and document true outcomes, including causes of death, and track new indicators for death. Investments in #CRVS (Civil registration and vital statistics) and networked information systems are also on the critical path
