People with chat bubbles

We welcome public comments on topics and questions.

The U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services are currently asking for public comments on the topics and scientific questions to inform our development of the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

The final topics and scientific questions will be examined by an external, scientific advisory committee once the committee is appointed.

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