National Press Club Event: USDA’s MyPlate and What’s on Americans’ Plates Today

November 15, 2011

WASHINGTON, Nov. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Join an in-depth discussion on the USDA’s initiatives to promote more healthful eating and the current state of Americans’ eating behaviors.

Dr. Robert C. Post, deputy director of USDA’s Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion (CNPP), and Harry Balzer, chief industry analyst at The NPD Group, and author of Eating Patterns in America, will discuss the why and how behind the development of the 2010 Dietary Guidelines and review the current state of America’s eating behaviors.

The speakers will focus on the contrast between what Americans are really eating and what they should be eating as outlined by the USDA’s new dietary guidelines. You’ll come away with a better understanding of the magnitude of the behavioral changes needed by Americans to be healthier and how this effort will shape current and future food policy and nutrition initiatives.
