American Farm Bureau Federation Statement Regarding USDA's New Dietary Guidelines

Thu, 07 Jan 2016 17:14:34 CST

American Farm Bureau Federation Statement Regarding USDA's New Dietary Guidelines Statement by Bob Stallman, President, American Farm Bureau Federation, Regarding USDA’s New Dietary Guidelines


“America’s farmers and ranchers are proud to produce an abundant, nutritious and affordable food supply for our fellow citizens and the world. We believe the 2015 Dietary Guidelines provide a useful framework for Americans to make healthy choices for themselves and their families.


“We are pleased that the Agriculture and Health and Human Services departments listened to our concerns and remained true to their mission of helping Americans achieve a well-balanced diet. The Advisory Committee’s original recommendations on sustainability were clearly outside the scope of public health and showed little understanding of the work farmers and ranchers do to protect the environment. USDA and HHS agreed in the end and published guidelines consistent with their focus on overall nutrition.


“Dairy and lean meats remain key sources of important nutrients in a healthy, balanced diet. The recommendations for both dairy and protein were unchanged but include guidance in making well-balanced choices for a healthy lifestyle. These new guidelines give helpful direction while keeping some flexibility for the foods we all enjoy.”
