Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) Recommendations

Every five years, the Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Agriculture (USDA) jointly publish Dietary Guidelines for Americans – a set of health, nutritional and dietary recommendations for the public. For many years, the DGA has defined moderate drinking as two drinks per day for men and one drink per day for women.1 The next set of guidelines are set to be released in 2025.


We Encourage Congress to:

  • Urge HHS and USDA to use well-founded information and science to influence the guidelines.
  • Maintain the definition of moderate drinking that has served the public well.
