Guidelines for a National Nutrition Policy. A Working Paper.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Select Committee on Nutrition and Human Needs.
The Select Committee on Nutrition and Human Needs is charged with the investigation and development of a comprehensive National Nutrition Policy for the United States. The National Nutrition Consortium--representing four major scientific and professional societies, the membership of which have responsibilities for developing, through research, new knowledge in nutrition and food science in relation to man's needs for health--has addressed itself to preparation of guidelines for a National Nutrition Policy. These are presented in order to identify the many considerations to be brought into focus in effective longrange governmental planning and implementation of programs for foods and nutrition in relation to the Nation's health and other national responsibilities. A stated National Nutritional Policy is needed to ensure that food will be available to provide an adequate diet at a reasonable cost to every person within the United States. It is needed to fulfill our commitments as a Nation--in cooperation with other nations and international organizations--in planning and devising measures for provision of adequate food for the expanding world population. Consortium members include The American Institute of Nutrition, The American Society for Clinical Nutrition, The American Dietetic Association, and The Institute of Food Technology. (Author/JM)
