Food guidelines have been around for many years. The latest edition of the Dietary Guidelines dates back to 2005, and it is now time for new guidelines. MyPyramid is a food pyramid that reflects the recommendations of the Dietary Guidelines.
The Dietary Guidelines are jointly issued and updated by the U.S Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Health and Human Services. A committee was appointed in 2008 to start the review of the new guidelines. Four out of six meetings have been held and the remaining two will take place during the first half of this year. There will be a release of the 2010 Dietary Guidelines later this year, but the exact date is still unknown. We can however disclose that according to the USDA timetable the 2010 Dietary Guidelines are scheduled to be released in Fall 2010. It will be the seventh edition of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
Lets be open to the new guidelines as they will guide as to a healthier lifestyle.
