The eighth edition of the Dietary Guidelines is designed for professionals to help all individuals, ages 2 years-old and above, and their families to consume a healthy, nutritionally adequate diet.    The 2015-2020 edition provides five overarching Guidelines that encourage:
  • healthy eating patterns
  • recognize that individuals will need to make shifts in their food and beverage choices to achieve a healthy pattern
  • acknowledge that all segments of our society have a role to play in supporting healthy choices
  • provides a healthy framework in which individuals can enjoy foods that meet their personal, cultural and traditional preferences within their food budget
This guidance can help you choose a healthy diet and focus on preventing the diet-related chronic diseases that continue to impact American populations.   It is also intended to help you to improve and maintain overall health for disease prevention.
