The United States government has published dietary advice for over one hundred years. In response to popular interest in these documents, the National Agricultural Library has collected, digitized, and united them into a single online tool, the Historical Dietary Guidance Digital Collection.

This collection allows users to browse and search the full text of over 900 historical and contemporary federal dietary guidance and nutrition education publications. As a part of the National Agricultural Library Digital Collections, it also provides reliable, long-term online access to this content.

Please visit the About page for more information about this content and the history of the collection. The Search page allows users to search the collection and filter results. Many of these documents are historical; please do not assume this content reflects current scientific knowledge, policies, or practices.
