Thank you for your interest in the Dietary Guidelines.

The U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services recently asked for public comments on the topics and scientific questions to inform the review of evidence supporting our development of the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The Departments are now in the process of reviewing each public comment. To learn more, go here.

Our next step will be to issue a public call for nominations for the 2020 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee. This announcement will be posted here and in the Federal Register in the coming months.

This page will expand into a full site later this year. If you have trouble finding anything, please contact us at
