SNA President Becky Domokos-Bays Provided Input on Dietary Guidelines for Americans

On January 10, 2017, SNA President Becky Domokos-Bays, PhD, RD, SNS, participated in a public workshop hosted by The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine’s Committee to Review the Process to Update the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Domokos-Bays was invited to discuss the implementation of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGAs) and challenges school foodservice directors face as they develop their menus and programs to align with the DGAs. Some of her comments included:

“School nutrition professionals have a unique perspective to offer – we are on the forefront of the effort to turn these Dietary Guidelines into lifelong dietary habits for future generations.”

“School nutrition professionals are proud to work alongside the DGA Committee, health and nutrition groups, parents and other advocates in promoting healthy lifestyles for children. As we all work together to achieve this goal, we want to avoid having the quest for the perfect diet become a roadblock to progress in improving our children’s dietary choices.”
