This section provides information about food-based dietary guidelines and food guides from Asia and the Pacific.

As of 2020, 18 countries have their own national dietary guidelines. Most countries in the region are facing the double burden of malnutrition and issues of food safety; therefore the need for effectively implementing dietary guidelines is becoming more important than ever.

We invite governments to send us their new or revised food-based dietary guidelines and to notify updates on the information pertaining to their countries.
