Title of Collaborative Activity:

B-24 Project

Description of Collaborative Activity:

NICHD has played a lead role in the evolution of the process to include infants/children from birth to 24 months and pregnant women in future (2020 and beyond) iterations of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans; the "B-24 Project." An offshoot of that project was the effort to develop guidelines for nutritional care of preterm infants (the "Pre-B Project"). Both projects have included members of the CDC and FDA on working groups constituted to develop the initial reports that will serve as the basis for the subsequent systematic review and guideline development process.
