Dietary Guidelines for Americans

The Academy's process for providing input to help guide the development of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans has resulted in significant successes and provided valuable input on questions of scientific process, applicability of the guidelines to the general public and ways to facilitate implementation of the dietary recommendations issued every five years by the U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services.

Academy members are invited to join  the monthly Dietary Guidelines Affinity Group meetings to provide feedback during the guidelines process.
