Guidelines Up Fruits and Veg

New 2010 Dietary Guidelines recognize nation’s obesity problem and recommend eating half a plate of vegetables at each meal.

The latest Dietary Guidelines for Americans released yesterday addresses the nation’s obesity rate and urges Americans to eat less food, specifically soda, pizza, desserts, and cheese. The guidelines also suggest that at least half of a plate for each meal should be covered in fruits and vegetables. Cutting salt, saturated fats, and eating whole grains were also included. While many of the recommendations seem obvious, Marion Nestle, professor of nutrition at New York University, says it is major progress and that “[the guidelines] are blunter here than they’ve ever been before, and they deserve credit for that.” The Department of Agriculture revises the nutrition guidelines every five years.
