The USDA and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services have released its 2015 Dietary Guidelines: http://health.gov/dietaryguidelines/2015/
The 2015 USDA "My Plate, My Wins" bulletin makes these recommendations: http://www.cnpp.usda.gov/sites/defau...MyWinsTips.pdf
1. Make half your plate fruits and vegetables: Focus on whole fruits
2. Make half your grains whole grains
3. Move to low-fat or fat-free milk or yogurt
4. Make half your plate fruits and vegetables: Vary your veggies
5. Vary your protein routine
Disappointingly, point #5 doesn't directly say, "Choose plant protein over animal protein".
Although the bulletin does recommend limiting saturated fat, it fails to discourage people from eating red meat and processed meats (considered carcinogenic by the American Cancer Society, the World Health Organization, and others).
The bulletin, surprisingly, directly tells people to avoid butter and sugary drinks.
I don't think people actually read the USDA's Dietary Guidelines, but these are the guidelines that are taught in grade schools.
