1) Healthy and well nourished teeth!
Due to the growing spread of unhealthy eating habits, caries continue to afflict children since early childhood. In the face of an increase in the demand for dental care related to caries, the only sustainable and desirable strategy remains the early prevention of risk factors. For this reason, we consider as primary important the education at every phase of the evolutionary age. We propose a project of food and oral hygiene education addressed to the parents of children enrolled in nursery and to children enrolled in kindergarten and elementary school. This project born from the collaboration between nutritionists of masterADA, Nutrition and Applied Dietetic, and students of the degree in Dental Hygiene.

2) Do you know what you drink?
As the popularity of caffeinated energy drink (ED) use continues to increase, so do concerns about possible adverse effects. Many EDs contain substantive amounts of caffeine and heavy caffeine consumption can lead to such adverse effects as agitation/jitteriness, insomnia, tachycardia, and muscle tremors. EDs are particularly popular in adolescent where, in the last years is increase the consume of EDs combined with alcohol. Alcohol mixed with energy drinks (AmED) consumption is associated with alcohol dependence, binge drinking and susceptibility to and engagement in riskier behavior.
In order to inform teenagers about the effects of alcohol and abuse of EDs, seminar were organized at some high schools. www.iisfrisi.gov.it The project "Do you know what you drink?" will also be re-released next year.
