About CNPP

                                                                                            

The Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion (CNPP) was created within the U.S. Department of Agriculture in 1994. Together with the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), CNPP reports to the Office of the Under Secretary for Food, Nutrition and Consumer Services. CNPP’s mission is to improve the health of Americans by developing and promoting dietary guidance that links scientific research to the nutrition needs of consumers.

The staff at CNPP is composed primarily of nutritionists who specialize in nutrition science, analytics, nutrition evaluation, education and communication – many of whom are Registered Dietitians. We also have economists, public health experts, policy advisors, graphic designers and librarians.
CNPP carries out its mission to improve the health of Americans by (1) serving as the Federal authority on evidence-based food, nutrition and economic analyses to inform policy and programs; (2) translating science into actionable food and nutrition guidance for all Americans; and (3) leading national communication initiatives that apply science-based messages to advance consumers’ dietary and economic knowledge and behaviors.
