Dietary Guidelines for Americans

The Issue: The Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Agriculture (USDA) are preparing the 2025-2030 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA).

Why It Matters: The longstanding DGA definition of moderate consumption of alcohol (two drinks/day for men and one drink/day for women) has served the public well.

We Encourage Congress to:

  • Urge HHS and USDA to continue to use well-founded, unbiased information and science as well as a transparent
    process to inform the guidelines.
  • Urge HHS and USDA to keep Congress informed of their progress throughout the process.
