Title of Collaborative Activity:

Dietary Guidelines for Children 0-2 Years: Exploring the Evidence

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) are issued jointly every five years by HHS and USDA but traditionally have focused on Americans ages 2 and above. Specific recommendations for infants and toddlers have not been addressed since the 1985 edition, although some general guidance was included in the 1990 DGA. The National Institute for Child Health and Human Development, the USDA, and ODPHP have developed a project intended to help identify questions and begin scoping the scientific literature related to dietary (not nutrient) recommendations for ages 0-2 to build an analytic framework for a systematic evidence based review. Two meetings were held, one early in the process consisting of members of 4 workgroups to understand the project and clarify issues (request already submitted). The following workshop, culminated in publication of the workshop proceedings in a peer reviewed journal.
