Dietary Guidelines

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) jointly publish the Dietary Guidelines for Americans (Dietary Guidelines) every 5 years. Each edition of the Dietary Guidelines reflects the body of nutrition science.

The Dietary Guidelines provides evidence-based food and beverage recommendations for Americans ages 2 and older. These recommendations aim to:

Promote health
Prevent chronic disease
Help people reach and maintain a healthy weight
Public health agencies, health care providers, and educational institutions all rely on Dietary Guidelines recommendations and strategies.

The Dietary Guidelines also has a significant impact on nutrition in the United States because it:

Forms the basis of federal nutrition policy and programs
Helps guide local, state, and national health promotion and disease prevention initiatives

Informs various organizations and industries (e.g., products developed and marketed by the food and beverage industry)
