Resources for incorporating 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines in to your Fall 2021 nutrition courses

This fall we'll be introducing the new 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines to our students as an update to the 2015 edition.  With this in mind, I adapted and expanded upon "The Top Ten Things to Know about the 2020-2025 DGA" resource into 27 slides. I've provided the link to the slides as well as a 15 minute narrated version (done on my home computer - but generic).  Seemed a good way to address what's new in approach in the newest DGA edition.   In addition, using the 4 Overarching Guidelines as the focus with highlights from the 148-page Dietary Guidelines pdf, I put together a 40 slide presentation (no narrated version).   Below are the links - feel free to download, adapt for your classes, incorporate into your slide presentations, and use!   For those of you that use Launchpad for Nutrition for a Changing World, these resources are also included there.  The media update for the text that reflects the new DGA throughout (particularly chapter 2) as well as updates in statistics, trends, and research - as well as slides and related resources - will be available later this fall for Spring courses.  In the meantime, I hope these resources are helpful - and do feel free to reach out if you need further support to me at (PS - Happy to do a guest Zoom mini-lecture on the new DGAs for your class!)    Best, Jamie
