Take Action – Submit Your Comments to Influence 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans

The Department of Health and Human Services’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans Committee (DGAC) is in the process of creating the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

Per the HHS’ website, “Recommendations from the Dietary Guidelines for Americans are intended for Americans ages 2 years and over, including those at increased risk of chronic disease, and provide the basis for federal food and nutrition policy and education initiatives. The Dietary 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.”1

This is your chance to weigh in on any of the food topics that are of concern to you and get your voice heard.  These guidelines set the basis for many food policies implemented at local, state, and federal levels, so it’s important that the committee get these guidelines for 2015 right!
