The Dietary Guidelines for Americans are the cornerstone of Federal nutrition policy and nutrition education activities.

The Dietary Guidelines for Americans are jointly issued and updated every 5 years by the Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). They provide authoritative advice about consuming fewer calories, making informed food choices, and being physically active to attain and maintain a healthy weight, reduce risk of chronic disease, and promote overall health.

Recommendations from the Dietary Guidelines for Americans are intended for Americans ages 2 years and over, including those at increased risk of chronic disease. The Guidelines encourage Americans to focus on eating a healthful diet — one that focuses on foods and beverages that help achieve and maintain a healthy weight, promote health, and prevent disease.

The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans are the 7th edition released since 1980 and remain the current edition until the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans are released.

My Plate
