Nutrition during WWII

This film highlights the efforts in Britain to ration and save food to educate Americans during WWII.

Interestingly, healthy eating habits and proper diet are the focus of this film (rather than rationing).

The national nutrition program was created during WWII to encourage Americans to eat healthfully, including parsnips, turnips and squash.

This film argues that a better diet will lead to more productive workers and soldiers.

An apropos film given the rise in obesity in the United States.
