Good Eating Habits, 1951

This Cold War era film instructs children how to have healthy eating habits.

Little Bill has a stomach ache because he rushes through his meals and eats the wrong foods.

This would be fun to show students and have a discussion of the effects of their own eating habits. It could be used after an exam when you have a bit of extra time but don’t want to start a new lesson, as a beginning of the week activity, as part of a unit examining their own behaviors etc.

Certainly seems appropriate for any social studies class, given the high rates of obesity as well as the inclination for processed and fast food in the U.S.
