Protecting Potatoes’ Place on Americans’ Plates
Nutrition guidance systems have been around for more than 100 years. And while people may not follow them to the letter, they influence important food assistance programs like school meals and WIC (the supplemental food program for women, infants, and children). The next revision of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans is due in 2025. Join us for an educational webinar to:
- Familiarize yourself with the dietary guidelines revision process.
- Understand the importance of maintaining potatoes’ place in the vegetable category.
- Explore how healthcare professionals use the guidelines for promoting health and preventing chronic diseases.

*Webinar Room will open at 12:00 pm MDT.
