What will the 2010 Dietary Guidelines recommend?

January 28, 2011

It’s been a closely guarded secret. But on Monday, Jan 31st, we will finally know. The report from the Adivsory Committee made it very clear that addressing obesity is a top priority.  You can be sure the Dietary Guidelines will address:

1.  Primary prevention
2.  Behavior changes
3.  Environmental changes
4.  Food supply changes.

Outside of a strong recommendation to reduce dietary sodium intake (see Less Salt May Be Too Hard to Swallow), we’ll have to watch and listen for the specifics on Monday.

The release of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2010 will be webcast live starting at 10:00am ET on Monday, January 31, 2011. Visit USDA.gov/live to join in!
