Mandated by the 2014 Farm Bill, the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) will include guidance for the first time for women who are pregnant as well as infants and toddlers from birth to 24 months. For the 2020-2025 dietary guidelines, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) have proposed a life stage approach to establish the dietary guidance, with focus on the dietary intake and nutrients of public health concern for each stage of life, namely infants and toddlers (birth to 2 years), children and adolescents (2-18 years), adults (19-64 years), pregnancy and lactation, and older adults (over 65 years in age). 
This new approach, presents opportunities for product development and personalizing nutrition based on the unique nutrition needs during various life stages. Public Law 101-445 (October 22, 1990) established the National Nutrition Monitoring Advisory Council and the reporting of Dietary Guidelines for Americans. At least every five years, the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) members are charged to develop guidelines for the general public and national nutrition policy, which shall be based on the preponderance of the scientific and medical knowledge, current at the time the report is prepared. Historically, the topics and questions to be addressed by the DGAC were generated from public suggestions and guidance from either the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or USDA. As we approach the 9th edition of the DGA, unlike previous years, the topics and scientific questions were posted on the USDA website for public comment and finalized by USDA and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).
During this session, three international nutrition experts will address topics related to dietary intake and nutrient requirements for women who are pregnant or lactating, infants and toddlers, and older adults.
