Thank you for your interest in the Dietary Guidelines.

The U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services recently announced the members of the 2020 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee. To see the list of nationally recognized experts, click on the “Start here” button to the left.

The Committee will be sworn in and begin its work at a public meeting to be announced soon. Their role is to conduct an independent, science-based review of specific topics and supporting scientific questions related to nutrition and health – from birth into older adulthood.

USDA and HHS will consider the Committee’s scientific review as the Departments develop the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
