Dietary Guidelines

We’re pleased the USDA and Department of Health and Human Services kept the new dietary guidelines focused on nutritional and dietary information and reaffirmed the role of lean meat and poultry in a healthy diet.

We believe the key to a healthy lifestyle includes a balanced diet with a variety of foods in sensible amounts and regular physical activity. Meat and poultry are an important part of a healthy diet, providing essential nutrients including amino acids, vitamins and minerals.
