Maria Dello, CN from Dellonutritionals Lectures at Athleta in the Americana Manhasset
On January 8th, 2013, Maria Dello, CN gave a lecture at Athleta in the Americana of Manhasset. Athleta is a national women’s performance apparel store and is a sister store of the Gap. The Manhasset location opened in July and dedicates its apparel to a “healthy lifestyle.” Ms. Dello is a certified medical nutritionist and has been very involved in the Manhasset community. She has lectured to various organizations and schools across Long Island. The lecture at Athleta was based on anti-aging and tips to keeping up with your News Year’s Resolutions.
Ms. Dello began by discussing the latest tips and applications for keeping up with your healthy goals. She stated that the average New Year’s Resolutions only last about three days. Ms. Dello said that, “in my book, every day is a New Year’s Resolution.” This time of year, especially, is the perfect time to reflect and change what’s not working for you.
Ms. Dello also touched upon the impact on our bodies of inflammatory foods such as alcohol, sugar, processed meats, food dyes, aspartame, and polyunsaturated fats such as corn oil, safflower, and cotton seed, which trigger an inflammatory response to the immune system. This causes a chemical reaction in the body called glycation, which is the result of a binding reaction between sugar and protein. Ms. Dello explained this reaction is the effect that you see when you cut an apple and it turns brown over time. She went into great detail about the effects of gluten on our population. Gluten is found in wheat, barley and oats, and eating wheat can be destructive to the GI tract. She stated that, “you can live beyond gluten and avoid its ill effects.”
In addition, Ms. Dello reviewed how we can protect ourselves by eating foods that have fighting agents such as anthocyanins, a type of flavonoid in a class of compounds with antioxidant effects. Found naturally in a number of foods, anthocyanins are the pigments that give berries, red onions, kidney beans, pomegranates, and grapes their rich coloring. “Just eating 2 servings of vegetables that contain anthocyanins can reduce your rate of aging by 50%,” stated Ms. Dello.
Ms. Dello also gave her “top ten” list of foods that increase longevity and help increase metabolism. Some notable foods on the list were kefir, blueberries, kale, walnuts, and various spices such as cayenne pepper. She highlighted that green tea has a compound in it called ECG that helps increase our metobolism.
The crowd took notes and engaged in questions. Lisa Santos from Manhasset said, “one hour packed with a lifetime of wisdom! Maria always delivers power packed nutritional facts that are life changers! Super lecture, Maria!”
Athleta was very pleased with the lecture and have invited Maria Dello,CN for a series of lectures. The next one will be Thursday February 7th, at 7:30, the topic will be on “Top Ten Foods you can Eat to Burn Body Fat, and Revolutionary Health Tips to Stay Young”

Maria Dello, CN from Dellonutritionals lectures SEPTA on, “THE POWER OF FOODS”
On April 26th, 2012, Manhasset Certified Nutritionist Maria Dello spoke to the SEPTA Organization of Long Island. Ms. Dello has a strong background in family and childhood nutrition, and has been very involved with the Manhasset SEPTA over the past several years. The lecture was held at Jonathan’s restaurant in New Hyde Park and was a big success. The ladies were riveted with her nutritional information.
The topic of discussion was the latest news on the harmful effects of sugar and how certain foods, sugars in particular, adversely affect teens’ academic and athletic performance, as well as their general health. Ms. Dello explained how food impacts us, and that there is a true meaning to the phrase, “you are what you eat.”
Ms. Dello stressed how crucial it is for parents to take care of their own health, not only for basic health reasons, but also to set an example for their children. She stated, “We as mom’s are the core of the family, like the swan who protects and guides. It’s a time when we must learn to incorporate the power of foods into our daily lifestyles.” More then half of the ladies had children with autistic kids.
Ms. Dello discussed how certain toxins could impair the endocrine system and act as cytotoxins that cause behavioral changes in our children. However, most toxicity found in aspartame, chlorine, fluoride, detergents and food dyes can be avoided. Studies have shown that food dyes can cause hyperactivity; the European parliament voted to add warning labels to food dyes with the phrase, “may have an adverse effect on activity and attention in children.” This goes to show that simply reading food labels can help avoid most of these problems.
Ms. Dello also reviewed the importance of, “good fats,” and explained how our brains are sixty percent fat, proving how vital it is to incorporate essential fats into our diets, such as Omega 3 fatty acids. She reviewed how coconut oil is a winner because of its polyphenols and can be used in cooking and even applied to the skin. In addition, Ms. Dello went over the dangers of, “bad fats,” like hydrogenated oils, and pointed out a critical fact: the FDA allows amounts of hydrogenated oils under 4.9 in our foods with out stating it on the label.
Gluten free products were also discussed in the lecture. Ms. Dello explained that gluten (a binding protein) causes inflammation in the body, which is found in wheat, barley rye, kamut, and oats. She showed examples of food products that can be used in lieu of wheat products, including brown rice and quinoa.
Ms. Dello topped the night off my giving her, “top ten power house foods,” which include coconut oil, turmeric, blueberries, kefir, sourkuat, wild salmon, cinnamon, tomatoes, quinoa, and almonds. These foods are packed with nutrients and help with inflammation, a symptom that mimics fifty-five ailments. Ms. Dello ended the evening my saying, “I am honored to be involved with an organization who reaches out to so many families that need help, and it’s my way of giving back.”
The lecture was followed by a questions and answers session, and the audience thanked Maria Dello for sharing her knowledge with the group. One woman commented that, “it was an outstanding fun lecture.”

The meeting was attended by parents, as well as the school’s President, Mrs. Grace Cavallo, and the Director of Development and Alumni Relations, Kristin Lynch Graham.
The topic of discussion was “Feeding Your Teen”. Ms. Dello, who has a strong background in family and childhood nutrition, began by providing the audience with the latest statistics on childhood obesity and diabetes in the U.S. and also described how certain foods, sugars in particular, adversely affect teens’ academic and athletic performance, as well as their general health. She provided parents with practical dietary and lifestyle changes that can optimize overall health and performance in teens. Mindful of the fact that many parents today work and that teens and their families have hectic schedules, Ms. Dello suggested practical and manageable steps geared toward an active and busy family lifestyle. She emphasized that these changes can be made over time, rather than being imposed suddenly and radically on a family, with the overall goal being improved family nutrition and health. She explained the importance of protein in growing teens’ diets and the need to focus on healthy proteins, such as from organic sources, animals that are raised in a hormone-free and antibiotic-free environment and wild caught fish. She also urged parents to eliminate high fructose corn syrup, other processed sugars, artificial colors, and artificial flavors from their childrens’ diets because they can adversely affect weight and cause attention problems and hyperactivity, and some of the artificial colors are known carcinogens. The lecture was well attended, despite the torrential rain, and the feedback from attendees was great. “I could have listened to her all night,” said one parent. And a member of the Gaels Parents Association Advisory Leadership Committee noted, “What a great choice for our inaugural speaker!”

Maria Dello,CN advises St.Mary’s school (“PTO”) on
“keeping our families healthy”.
ST. MARY’S ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, November 5, 2010. Parents attended the St. Mary’s Elementary School monthly Parent Teacher Organization (“PTO”) meeting. The guest speaker was Maria Dello, proprietor of Dellonutritionals located at 75 Plandome Road.
Ms. Dello is a Certified Medical Nutritionist, dedicated to educating and helping people make the changes necessary to a healthier lifestyle in today's fast-paced world. As part of her ongoing commitment to improving the health and nutrition of families and children, she has generously volunteered her time by lecturing to and working with various Long Island organizations and North Shore Schools, including Manhasset SEPTA and the “Kid’s in the Kitchen Program” with the Junior League of Long Island. For more then a decade, Maria Dello has been passionate about nutritional education and has played an important part in keeping our families healthy in the community.
St. Mary’s PTO meets once a month on Friday mornings; most meetings include a guest speaker on topics of interest to the school community. Nutrition is one of the PTO’s areas of focus this year. Since family and childhood nutrition is such a broad and comprehensive topic, Ms. Dello spoke at the November 5th meeting to provide the parents with an initial overview of how to make simple changes in their families’ diets in order to start optimizing their health. She emphasized the importance of protein in children’s diets and the need to eliminate the nutritional “culprits” such as high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, and artificial flavors. Ms. Dello spoke about incorporating natural meats and hormone-free dairy, and explained how the food chain has gradually changed along with the well being of Americans. She really made us think about the preparation of our foods and shared various tips that we can take on a daily basis to improve our families' health.
She also engaged the audience in a guessing game designed to highlight the common fallacies conveyed in nutritional labels through catchy buzz-words such as “all natural”, “heart healthy” and “trans fat-free”. Ms. Dello also distributed Dellonutritional Stainless steel water bottles and Pedometers to the winners. Finally, she gave the parents a take-home test designed to give them an idea of where they need nutritional improvement.
The feedback following the meeting was extremely positive, and St. Mary’s PTO plans to host additional events with Dellonutritionals, addressing areas such as getting healthy and energizing breakfasts into children on busy school mornings, maximizing the nutrition of lunch, healthy dinners for busy weeknights, and decoding food labels. We thank Maria Dello, CN for sharing her wealth of knowledge with our school. We look forward to having her back.

Maria Dello, CN Lectures Manhasset High School
By Stefani Pappas
On March 24, 2011, the Manhasset High School Nutrition Club hosted a lecture by Certified Medical Nutritionist Maria Dello, proprietor of Dellonutritionals Inc. in Manhasset, NY. The lecture took place at Manhasset High School and a successful turnout of students and parents attended this event.
The night began with a focus on balancing everything and eating in moderation. Ms. Dello emphasized the leading causes of obesity in America, including sugar, high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils and artificial sweeteners. She quizzed the audience as attendees were asked to guess which household foods contained the highest amounts of sugar. Ms. Dello supplied pedometers and Dellonutritionals Stainless Steel Water Bottles as prizes. She stressed examining ingredient lists and limiting sugar intake.
The evening then proceeded to focus on preparing meals for the week and starting the day with a healthy, protein-rich breakfast to stabilize blood sugar. Ms. Dello recommended that athletic students who often reach to Gatorade to hydrate should try coconut water to balance electrolytes without the added sugar in products like Gatorade. She mentioned brain foods such as wild salmon, walnuts, dark chocolate, green tea and blueberries, which can benefit students in both academics and athletics.
Finally, Ms. Dello discussed ways for students to avoid the so-called “Freshman-15.” She discussed how college students often get into bad habits, like not drinking enough water, eating fast foods, not sleeping enough and eating late at night when the digestive system should be resting.
Complimentary healthy snacks were provided by members of the Manhasset High School Nutrition Club, and Principal Dr. Dean Schlanger made a special appearance towards the end of the night.
Raffles were auctioned off and proceeds went towards the Kids in Nutrition Program- an organization dedicated to providing nutritional counseling to underprivileged families on Long Island. Raffles included a cooking class to Sur La Table, a prom package to nuBest Salon and Spa, and Maria Dello provided three healthy gift baskets.
Attendees were raving about Ms. Dello’s lecture, saying that it was both educational and informative. Students called her “inspiring,” and “refreshing.” As the President of the Manhasset High School Nutrition Club, I am pleased to say that this was one of our most successful events and we look forward to inviting her again in the future. It was an honor and a privilege having her come speak to the club, and she is someone that we can both learn from and see as a “role model”. Ms. Dello is also a contributor to the Manhasset Indian Ink Newspaper, which features her articles that provide health information to students and their families.
Ms. Dello is dedicated to her passionate goal of teaching, guiding, and educating every individual who walks in her door or visits her website about the benefits of a salubrious lifestyle and diet. Maria’s proven combination of the most curative, nutritional advice and the latest state-of-the-art technologies coupled with the one-on-one support and daily guidance in her Manhasset office, makes her one of the gems of Manhasset’s North Shore. Testimonials by many of her clients reveal that Maria targets and helps men, women, and children with weight loss tactics, longevity through simple diet changes, and heart-healthy alternatives for healthier living. Many North Shore doctors have recommended Maria to their patients with successful results. Maria manages to fit sophisticated speaking engagements at local fundraisers and clubs into her monthly agenda. Finally, Maria writes an informative weekly nutritional column comprised of the latest research on health and nutrition for many local Long Island newspapers.

Manhasset SEPTA and Dellonutritionals Event May 18th
Manhasset Special Education PTA (SEPTA) hosted a cooking workshop recently that focused on supporting the special dietary needs of families with food allergies and special nutritional needs. The event, which had nearly 40 attendees, highlighted family-friendly dishes that were diary, wheat, egg and nut free. Furthermore, the workshop spotlighted the importance of better food choices and how these choices support the special nutritional needs of children with developmental, learning and physical disabilities.
The workshop was conducted by Maria Dello of Dello Nutritionals who is a certified nutritionist. Along with her staff, Dello provided a lecture, cooking demonstration and food tasting that lasted two hours.
The workshop and cooking demonstration provided appetizers, entrees and dessert options using organic and nutritional ingredients. A full list and the recipes can be found on the Manhasset SEPTA website under the “Keeping Our Families Healthy” page. Kid food such as turkey sliders, chia pudding, smoothies and mock lunchables were also part of the demo and food tasting.
Attendees found the information about understanding package labels and nutritional tables most helpful. Knowing the different names for additives, sweeteners and allergens, as well as understanding sugar, fat and protein listings had most parents coming away from the workshop better informed for healthier food choices at the market. Many parents were also shocked by deceptive food packaging labels as “healthy,” “low calorie” and “light” when the nutritional labels showed high fat and sugar contents that were at unhealthy levels.
“Manhasset SEPTA is so grateful to Maria for bringing this educational and tasty presentation to our special needs community,” SEPTA Co-President Ann Marie Moschitta stated. Moschitta, who hosted the workshop in her home, added, “What a great motivator to avoid junk food, use caution, and make smarter healthy choices that directly impact our families.”
There was also fundraising raffles for ten prizes during the workshop. Prizes included a nuBest , dinner for four to Café Continental, and specialty items from Whole Foods Market, Matty’toy shop,Stressa, Billy Dee’s, Wellness beef, Wild Pacific Salmon,Mountain Valley water, and more.

ADDRESSES CHILD HOOD OBESITY
sponsored by Junior League of Long Island
Junior League of Long Island Tackles Childhood Obesity
With Kids in the Kitchen
Long Island Students and Families Learn Healthy Lifestyle Habits at Westbury Event
Roslyn, N.Y. – March 15, 2010, The Junior League of Long Island (www.jlli.org), a nonprofit organization of women volunteers, joined the battle to end childhood obesity on Long Island with Kids in the Kitchen, an educational and fitness-themed event, on Saturday, March 13, 2010. One hundred students at Powells Lane Elementary School in Westbury and their families were given tools and tips to learn how to live a healthy, affordable, active lifestyle.
The Junior League’s Kids in the Kitchen event addressed the urgent issues surrounding childhood obesity on Long Island through interactive, hands-on activities and demonstrations from local nutrition and fitness experts. Incorporating an Olympic theme with opening and closing ceremonies, the kindergarten through sixth grade students of Powells Lane Elementary School enjoyed entertaining instructional sessions by Lucie B’s Jump N’ Fun, Breakthroughs to Fitness, Lilchefs.com, Dr. Michelle from Kids Smiles Dentistry Group, Nutritionist Maria Dello, C.N., and Lizzy Rockwell, author of Good Enough to Eat.
“The Junior League has always been about improving the lives of children and our Kids in the Kitchen initiative empowers Long Island children to adopt healthy habits. Educating children is the key to reducing the obesity trend in our nation and its associated health issues such as diabetes and heart disease,” said Deidra Maleno, President of The Junior League of Long Island. “Our wonderful provisional class of new Junior League volunteers worked incredibly hard to make this event such a phenomenal success. Kids in the Kitchen would also not have been possible without the generous donations of time, talents and products from our many local sponsors.”
The Junior League’s Kids in the Kitchen initiative is supported by The Association of Junior Leagues International Inc. and over 200 Junior Leagues nationwide.

Dello Nutritionals & SEPTA Partner to Support

Manhasset Special Education PTA (SEPTA) and local nutritional expert Maria Dello announce a partnership to support optimal health for parents and children in the community with a regular column for the SEPTA website. The new column, Keeping Our Families Healthy, is the second phase of a community outreach to promote awareness and healthy lifestyles with helpful tips and nutritional facts. The first column, which will focus on parents, appears today on the Manhasset SEPTA website, www.ManhassetSEPTA.org. This article can be accessed for next three weeks.
“Nutrition and a healthy lifestyle greatly impacts children with special needs like health impairments or developmental disabilities,” Manhasset SEPTA Co-President Lori Mann stated. “We are delighted to be able to bring this new column to the community, not only for special needs families but for all families in Manhasset,” she added.
The debut article will focus on parents, outlining healthy tips and ideas to help mothers and fathers take steps toward better health for themselves while setting a higher standard of health for their loved ones.
“We chose to start the health focus with parents,” certified nutritionist Maria Dello noted. “It like the flight attendant announcement that the adult needs to put on the oxygen mask on first before helping the child with theirs—that parents first need to be healthy and strong so they are able to then help their families,” she stated.
Ms. Dello also noted that although health is an important priority for all parents, it sometimes gets less attention because parents are exhausted by all the other daily demands. She highlighted that this is an especially challenging issue for parents with special needs family members, as the extra demands of a learning or developmental disability takes even more of the parent’s time and energy each day. Furthermore, many children with disabilities or health impairments have food aversions, food sensitivity and allergies that make proper nutrition even more paramount yet even more difficult to achieve.
“It is ironic that one of the most important things for special needs families—proper nutritional support—is often what gets the least amount of attention,” Ms. Dello stated. “My new column is designed to be a fast, informative read for busy parents while outlining easy to do changes to try, allowing parents to take small steps each day that will have a big impact on their overall health,” she added.
Dello Certifiied Nutritionals and Manhasset SEPTA are proud to have started this long-term partnership to support special needs families’ health concerns in their daily lives. The Keeping Our Families Healthy column will appear on the Manhasset SEPTA website with a new topic highlighted each month. Upcoming column topics include: Negative impacts on children’s health; Surviving the winter months; Easy changes to make for improving the health of the whole family; and New ideas for cooking for optimal health.
The first phase of SEPTA’s partnership with Dello Certified Nutritionals was awareness about plastic drinking bottles with a fundraiser from the sale of stainless steel drinking containers in December 2009.
