Food Based Dietary Guidelines

FAO’s Food Based Dietary Guidelines (FBDGs) website aims to serve as a repository for government-endorsed FBDGs and associated information, presented in an organized and homogenous format. It also functions as a platform for relevant resources that touch on the design, implementation and evaluation of dietary guidelines, as well as on the state of the art of regional FBDGs and other issues or relevance, such as sustainability. Recently, the website has been expanded to include a section on capacity development opportunities, which features a series of FAO-led regional workshops to encourage and assist Member Countries in developing their own FBDGs and implementing them across multiple sectors and levels, including health and agricultural policies and nutrition education programs.
