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. Most FBDG encourage energy balance, physical activity, a healthful variety of foods including fruits and vegetables, whole-grain products, food sources of protein, calcium, and unsaturated fatty acids, and safe food handling. Cautionary messages focus on excess energy intake, saturated and trans fatty acids, added sugars, salt, and alcohol. To develop relevant FBDG, each country must identify local public health issues and appropriate diet-related strategies for the population.
