Veggies on Top of U.S. Nutrition Panel Guidelines

The 2015 report from the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee states that cholesterol may not be as worrisome as sugar and fats, while diets rich in vegetables and fruits are the way to go, both for our health and our planet.

The U.S. population should be encouraged and guided to consume dietary patterns that are rich in vegetables, fruit, whole grains, seafood, legumes, and nuts; moderate in low- and non-fat dairy products and alcohol (among adults); lower in red and processed meat; and low in sugar-sweetened foods and beverages and refined grains. These dietary patterns can be achieved in many ways and should be tailored to the individual’s biological and medical needs as well as socio-cultural preferences.
