The use of food-based dietary guidelines (FBDG) has emerged as an important food and nutrition policy and education program since the late 1970s and is valuable for addressing issues of both nutrient adequacy and excess. Importantly, FBDG communicate nutritional principles in a manner that is relevant to the population. As a policy document, they should be revised periodically so that the information reflects current science on food and nutrition factors that promote health and prevent disease. Additionally, it is important for each country to develop their own set of FBDG so that the recommendations and presentation are relevant to the local population.
