USBC Public Comments on Dietary Guidelines Scientific Report

The USBC has submitted comments to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) in response to the "Scientific Report of the 2020 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee" public comment opportunity. USDA and HHS will consider the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee's Scientific Report, along with public and agency comments, as the Departments develop the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. USBC 's comments urge the Departments to make a clear recommendation in the DGA for exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life followed by continued breastfeeding as complementary foods are introduced for at least the first year of life. USBC's comments also urge the Departments to ensure that the DGA reflects the most recent, salient, evidence-based science and is free of industry bias.
