Earlier this month, I authored the blog “The 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines are in Development. What You Need to Know!” for The Dairy Alliance. An overview of the initial recommendations of the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee are highlighted, including the continued focus on eating patterns, rather than individual nutrients; eating more, not less, nutrient-dense foods; maintaining dairy as a separate food group; and reducing daily sugar intake from 10% to 6%. The committee report was submitted to a team of staff at the U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services for final development and approval. Public release of the report is expected by the end of the year.
