Yesterday the U.S. Department of Agriculture released new dietary guidelines. The recommendations emphasize the importance of a diet with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables.

A majority of adults and over one third of all children are overweight or obese. But some question what impact, if any, federal dietary guidelines can have. Join us to discuss the new government recommendations on what we should eat, whether these guidelines can help improve our health.
