National Restaurant AssociationThe National Restaurant Association released the following statement regarding the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) release of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans:

“We welcome the Dietary Guidelines’ recommendations around a total dietary meal pattern which focuses on increasing consumption of whole grains, fruits and vegetables. There has been a growing trend of restaurants offering more healthful food choices. In fact, 85% of American adults say there are more healthy options at restaurants than compared to just two years ago. The restaurant industry has made great strides in offering an increased variety of beverage options on menus like water, juice and milk that reflect the DGA recommendations. Restaurants also continue to show their commitment to developing and offering lower-sodium menu options for consumers. We look forward to continuing to work with restaurant operators and chefs to provide even more healthful menu options for adults and children.

“The National Restaurant Association supports providing consumers with options that can help meet the Dietary Guidelines recommendations and nutrition information to help customers make informed food choices. We advocated for a uniform nationwide menu labeling standard that will help empower consumers when dining out and are continuing our work with FDA and our members as restaurants update their menus.”
