The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is tasked with developing Federal nutrition guidelines that inform health professionals, schools and other entities. These guidelines provide food-based recommendations for how to be healthful and prevent diet-related diseases. During this podcast, I discuss the ambiguous nature of some of these guidelines and recommend applying critical thinking when interpreting them for yourself. Additionally, I talk with my children about how these guidelines are applied at school. Specifically, I ask them what food is served at school and what they like or don’t like to eat.
