In this edition of the Eye on Potatoes podcast, NPC President Britt Raybould calls in from Idaho to talk about the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGAs), which are currently being drafted by USDA and U.S. Health and Human Services, as well as NPC’s efforts to advocate for the inclusion of potatoes in all forms in the recommendations.
NPC has played an active role in nutrition policy for many years, most recently correcting various policy decisions under the Obama Administration that disregarded nutrition science in the pursuit of excluding white potatoes from several federal feeding programs. It is anticipated that the final DGAs will be published before the end of 2020.
