Here are some articles I've been meaning to post:

2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines
Key Elements of Healthy Eating Patterns
The Dietary Guidelines’ Key Recommendations for healthy eating patterns should be applied in their entirety, given the interconnected relationship that each dietary component can have with others. As illustrated later in this chapter, there is more than one way to put these Key Recommendations into action; this is exemplified by the three eating patterns that translate and integrate the Key Recommendations into an overall healthy way to eat.
Key Recommendations
Consume a healthy eating pattern that accounts for all foods and beverages within an appropriate calorie level.
A healthy eating pattern includes:[2]
A variety of vegetables from all of the subgroups—dark green, red and orange,
legumes (beans and peas), starchy, and other
Fruits, especially whole fruits
Grains, at least half of which are whole grains
Fat-free or low-fat dairy, including milk, yogurt, cheese, and/or fortified soy beverages
A variety of protein foods, including seafood, lean meats and poultry, eggs, legumes (beans and peas), and nuts, seeds, and soy products

A healthy eating pattern limits:
Saturated fats and trans fats, added sugars, and sodium
Key Recommendations that are quantitative are provided for several components of the diet that should be limited. These components are of particular public health concern in the United States, and the specified limits can help individuals achieve healthy eating patterns within calorie limits:
Consume less than 10 percent of calories per day from added sugars[3] Consume less than 10 percent of calories per day from saturated fats[4] Consume less than 2,300 milligrams (mg) per day of sodium[5]
If alcohol is consumed, it should be consumed in moderation—up to one drink per day for women and up to two drinks per day for men—and only by adults of legal drinking age.[6
