**Nutrition in America took a major step forward Monday with the publication of Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2020-2025.
Jointly published by the USDA and Health and Human
Services, the guidelines provide science-based recommendations designed to foster healthy dietary patterns for Americans of all ages, from birth through older adults.
This edition expands the guidance, for the first time including recommended healthy dietary patterns for infants and toddlers.
**2020, it’s been called a year for the ages, a dumpster fire, a train wreck and a hot mess.
As reported by agrimarketing.com, that is why nine in ten Americans, 91% say they’re definitely looking forward to starting a new year.
This is from an online survey conducted by Regina Corso Consulting, of over 2,000 American adults last week.
But, over two in five U.S. adults, 42% say, while 2020 had its problems, it wasn't a bad year overall.
