The 2010 Dietary guidelines for Americans provide science-based advice aimed at promoting health and reducing the risk for major chronic diseases through diet and physical activity (United States Department of Agriculture, 2010).

The intent of the Dietary Guidelines is to summarize and synthesize knowledge regarding individual nutrients and food components in to recommendations for a healthy eating pattern that focuses on nutrient-dense foods and beverages that help the public achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
