USDA and HHS Seek Public Input by May 8 on Recommendations for 2015 Dietary Guidelines
WASHINGTON, April 3, 2015 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — The 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee presented evidence-based recommendations to the Departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services in February 2015. The Advisory Report is not the Dietary Guidelines for Americans policy or a draft of the policy. The Federal government will determine how it will use the information in the Advisory Report as it develops the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. HHS and USDA will jointly release the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2015 later this year.
But before the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans are drafted, HHS and USDA want to hear your thoughts on the Committee’s Advisory Report. You are invited to submit comments online by May 8, 2015. The submissions will be posted for viewing by May 22.
