The New U.S. Dietary Guidelines (2015-2020) – What You Need To Know

The Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2015-2020 were recently released. These Guidelines were created to help people improve their eating habits in order to avoid chronic disease and to improve the quality of life. Recommendations regarding added sugar intake have been included for the first time.
