In February 2015, the federal government’s Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC), a rotating group of appointed academics that meets every five years to recommend food policies that will promote health, prevent chronic disease, and help people reach and maintain a healthy weight, issued its latest report. Since its inception in 1980, the DGAC has “serve[d] as the cornerstone of all Federal nutrition education and program activities” in the five years after the committee meets. DGAC recommendations are used to set the food policies of many federal agencies, including the FDA and USDA. Those policies include everything from food labeling to the USDA’s National School Lunch Program.
