The final (7th) meeting of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee was held December 15, 2014.
Early in 2015, the Report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee will be submitted to the Secretaries of the Departments of Health and Human Services and Agriculture.
After submission, a Federal Register notice will be published announcing the availability of the Report, a public comment period, and a date of a public meeting for providing comments to the Federal Government on the Report.
Submission of public comments to the 2015 DGAC closes on December 30, 2014. Comments submitted to the Committee will remain viewable and searchable. The public comments database will reopen to accept public comments to the Federal Government on the Committee’s Report when the Federal Register is published announcing this public comment period.
The next edition of guidelines will be distributed in 2015. The public may submit comments on any topic. Find out more about how the recommendations for the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans are being developed.
