NEWGUIDELI­NES

The 2020-25 dietary guidelines outlined some new suggestion­s for sugar consumptio­n, although some scientists say they do not go far enough. The most significan­t change is the recommenda­tion that a child under 2 years old should get no added sugar in their diets. The contention centers on adults, where the guidelines continue to recommend getting less than 10% of calories from sugar per day. Scientific advisers had recommend lowering that limit to 6%.
