Physical Activity and Dietary Guidelines

The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion's (ODPHP) Dietary Guidelines for Americans have long provided evidence-based nutrition information and advice and are the basis for Federal food and nutrition education programs. The newer Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans describe the types and amounts of physical activity that offer substantial health benefits.

AIR works alongside ODPHP to support public health professionals, health care providers, and policymakers in adapting and applying the guidelines in their work. Based heavily on formative research and testing, we developed a multi-media resource toolkit and curriculum for use with Americans with low health literacy.
