A committee of experts provides recommendations for healthy eating twice every decade. These final recommendations are sent to the US Department of Health and Human Services and the US Department of Agriculture, which use them to create the final 2020 dietary guidelines for Americans.
For the first time ever, the panel is including nutrition guidelines for infants 2 years and younger, with a pointed focus on reducing sugar consumption.
On average, infants consume a teaspoon of added sugar a day while toddlers consume about 6 teaspoons a day.
“Nutritional exposures during the first 1,000 days of life not only contribute to long-term health but also help shape taste preferences and food choices.”2020 Dietary Guidelines Report
The committee also recommended further reductions in sugar intake for those age 2 and beyond. They also suggested less alcohol for men.
