The departments of Agriculture (USDA) and Health and Human Services (HHS) made progress last week on the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Department officials announced a call for nominations of nutrition professionals to serve on the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee and released a final list of priority topics and related scientific questions that the committee will consider when making recommendations for the 2020 guidelines.

“We’re pleased that several of the topics and questions that the committee will consider reflect the priority areas of IDFA and the dairy industry,” said Michelle Matto, R.D.N., IDFA’s nutrition and labeling consultant.

The final list indicates that the committee will review nutrition research on the impact of various beverages, including milk, on diet quality, as well as research on the role that different types and sources of dietary fats, which could include milkfat, play in a healthy diet. These topics reflect requests IDFA made in comments submitted this March.
