The federal government is tapping experts for its B-24 Project. It may sound like a new jet fighter, but in this case, B-24 pertains to nutrition advice for infants and toddlers up to 24 months old.
The project will produce unified federal dietary guidance for children from birth to 24 months based on the best available science, said Kevin Concannon, the Agriculture Departments Under Secretary for Food, Nutrition and Consumer Services.
Concannon noted that current federal dietary recommendations are designed for people two years and older, and therefore the B-24 project will fill an important gap.

Susan Jones needs to learn that the ‘B’ in B-24 stands for ‘Bomber’, not Fighter! Duh
Don’t you see? We’re all cattle and would have no idea if we weren’t told what to do.
The federal government wants to be your nipple.
#1 nutrition advice for this age group,...early on, avoid abortion clinics and family planning services.
So gentlemen. What is the most nutricious food for infants? Breast milk?
‘Don’t be silly. Brawndo infant formula’s got what brat’s crave.’ Undersecretary Concannon
‘Assuming it survives us—Brawndo, yeah. It’s got electrolytes.’
Dietary guidelines for babies, birth to 24 months? That’s wonderful! My only question is how will you inform the babies of what they should be eating? I hear that many in this age group read and comprehend at a lower level than New York high schoolers.
Next: I have not been able to find anything the Government has done right since winning World War II. Why would anyone believe they will even be close to right on this.
It's hard to believe that I, my parents, and grandparents ever reached adulthood without Nanny Government's guidance.
Considering the source, no doubt the diet includes generous servings of Kool Aid.
Other functions, such as managing national forests, could be absorbed by the Dept. of the Interior. Food inspections should be left to the States.
Heil Odinga, Heil Bloomberg.
The Nazis, whatever you want to call them, in AmeiriKa wants to raise your children, starting with ol Double Wide Ghetto Trash in the White Hut. They ARE the Cancer.
And our WII, Facebook and Tweeter society will let them. It is just EASIER that way. Why put up a fight and go to all that trouble of having to listen to them ol folks on how to raise children in a proper manner. Let the FERAL Government do it, what could it hurt....????
Are they complete idiots?
Yes. Complete and total idiots. Facts, reason, history and logic does not encumber the mind of the big government liberal mind.
My Mom built B-24’s during WWII. But I don’t know what was in the commissary. Probably crackers and bologna.
Not only that but it is often unhelpful. Why can’t private medical science keep up with what’s best? Why do 20 and 30 year old ideas have to keep dominating the scene, sucking up our own tax money to do so? I’d much sooner believe what, say, the Mayo Clinic has to say about wise diets than what Washington does.
> The federal government wants to be your nipple.
Uh no...that’s what wives are for...lol
Government is going to impose dietary guidelines on infants, eh? Sounds like they’re starting small and going to work on 3 year olds next then go up the line. They think they’re sneaky little bastards that are smarter than the rest of us and that we don’t know what they’re up to...these guys just never stop.
So - if a baby makes it past the government approved baby killing factories, the government wants to dictate how the survivor is fed.
"The federal government wants to be your nipple."
No,they speak, understand, and read at the same level as most Gang Bangers, not only of NY, but most of the major DummyTurd run cities.
Why not have them issue guidelines for infants? Because they’ve done soooooooooo well with the rest of us! /sarc
Nanny State PING!
