Dietary Guidelines Committee Hears from Nutrition Experts

May 11, 2009

The 2010 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee held a two-day public webinar at the end of April as part of its ongoing review of the nutritional guidelines that recommend what Americans should eat to stay healthy. Dr. Adam Drewnowski, a featured speaker from the University of Washington's School of Public Health and Community Medicine, told the committee to emphasize the positive and steer people to affordable, nutrient-rich, good-tasting foods, such as fruit, vegetables and lowfat dairy. Another speaker, Dr. Frank Sacks from the Harvard School of Public Health, called for a reduction in salt, calories and added sugar. More highlights are available to members below.

IDFA provided written comments in January and oral testimony at the committee's February meeting. In both comments and testimony, IDFA stressed the importance of continuing to recommend at least three daily servings of dairy products and of keeping milk and dairy as a food group to encourage.
