Dietary Guidance

Dietary guidelines are a translation of scientific knowledge on nutrients into specific dietary advice. They represent the recommended dietary allowances of nutrients in terms of diets that should be consumed by the population. The guidelines promote the concept of nutritionally adequate diets and healthy lifestyles from the time of conception to old age. Formulation of dietary goals and specific guidelines would help in providing required guidance to people in ensuring nutritional adequacy.

Food and nutrition play a crucial role in health promotion and chronic disease prevention. The latest edition of the Dietary Guidelines by Kare Partners reflects the current body of nutrition science, helps health professionals and policymakers guide patients to make healthy food and beverage choices, and serves as the science-based foundation for vital nutrition policies and programs across the country.
