Abstract
Dietary guidelines (DGs) play a very important role in guiding the population to adopt healthy life style practices at the individual level. In India, National Institute of Nutrition (NIN) is the nodal agency for promoting these dietary guidelines at the community level. The first dietary guidelines were formulated in the year 1998 by NIN and translated in to different languages to promote at the population level. After a decade, a committee was constituted for the revision of these dietary guidelines taking into consideration of change in the dietary habits of the population, influence of western food chains in Indian market, lack of physical activity among the people and growing trends in non communicable diseases at the population level. Further, DGs emphasize promotion of community health and prevention of non communicable and other diseases. Special focus on the importance of nutrition was emphasized for vulnerable segment of the population such as infants, children and adolescents, pregnant and lactating women and the elderly. The presentation mainly focuses on the need for the revision of the dietary guidelines and key differences in the new guidelines with doable and practical solutions under the “points to ponder” mentioned in the revised dietary guidelines. Further, the presentation also provides insight into different communication strategies to be applied at the community level in order to encourage people to follow the dietary guidelines.
