I joined the launch of the newest 2020-2025 edition of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) this morning (12/29). These science-based recommendations are released every five years to reflect the latest research and evidence in regards to the role of diet in promoting health and preventing disease. This edition builds upon previous editions, but with a new focus on nutrition across life stages - for the first time including infancy to age 2. The theme is "Make Every Bite Count" and there are four overarching guidelines as depicted below. A link to the Executive Summary can be found here: https://www.dietaryguidelines.gov/sites/default/files/2020-12/DGA_2020-2025_ExecutiveSummary_English... Visit dietaryguidelines.gov for more info. We will be sharing resources and slides about the newest edition of the DGA with instructors early in 2021 that can be used or adapted for Spring semester.
