Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee Releases Report with Recommendations for the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans

July 16, 2020, Covington Alert

On July 15, the 2020 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) released its final report to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), outlining its recommendations for the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (Dietary Guidelines). The Dietary Guidelines, a joint effort of HHS and USDA, provide the basis for federal food and nutrition policy and education initiatives. A new edition of the Dietary Guidelines is released every five years. DGAC’s report contains advice for HHS and USDA, and those agencies have typically accepted most (though not all) of the DGAC’s recommendations. The public may provide comments through August 13, 2020.
