What you need to know about health, nutrition and sugar intake – Daily News


Did you know that every five years the federal government, along with input from a committee of health and policy experts, puts out updated nutrition guidelines for the nation? Right now, the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans are in the final stages of being released. The Dietary Guidelines provide evidenced-based nutrition recommendations for individuals two years and older to make healthy choices about food and drink every day. Unlike fad diets that are all about short-term food restriction, these guidelines focus on informing the overall eating patterns of Americans, building upon the previous five years of scientific research.

Just last month an 835-page report by the 20-person expert advisory committee was published laying the foundation for these new guidelines. The U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Department of Health and Human Services will use this report to develop the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans to be released by the end of the year.
