Food Insight  Article: New Dietary Guidelines: What Changed & What Stayed the Same  by Kris Sollid, RD  December 11, 2015

"Nutrition science is an evolving field—and one that has piqued the public’s interest. As an RD, I think it’s fantastic that people want to know more about the role of food in health. The new DGA [Dietary Guidelines for Americans] encourage us all to think holistically about what we eat and drink. Our diets are more than just the sum of their parts—and we could all benefit from being a little more mindful about some parts of our diet."
