NATIONAL NUTRITION PROGRAM
The big offensive in the battle against malnutrition will begin in September
when the Nation's Food Fights For Freedom Program turns its attention to good
While similar programs carried out in the months past have stressed rationing,
price lists, Victory Gardens, food conservation and preservation, ind Crop Corps,
now the emphasis furns to making that food which was produced, preserved, and
conserved do a more thorough job of feeding America.
In this, the third year of America's participation in the war, there is a deeper
appreciation of the vital role of food in wartime than ever before. People are
concerned to learn that a study made in 1942 by the Department of Agriculture
showed that family diets were far from ideal in spite of considerable improvement
since a 1930 study. The existence of serious nutritional deficiency diseases in
a number of communities has been brought to the attention of nutrition workers
since May 1943 through nutrition clinic demonstrations with which the Nutrition
Programs Branch of the War Food Administration's Office of Distribution has
assisted. Insufficient income to meet family needs is one reason for poor diets

and malnutrition. Today, however, with spending power at an all-time hlgh|
with fewer good services available, many civilians who have increased Imap
are spending more on food, but not always the right food.
In line with the growing recognition of food's importance was the crema iiU '-
the National Nutrition Program, the aim of which is to show people how to t, :a
their eating habits to a wartime situation. The program is dedicated t Se- ,:
proposition that total war demands total Strength and that total strength pauv- ?
good nutrition. It recognizes that eating should mean more than PA:! : u
hunger. It should provide the body daily with the right kinds of food In jW"
amounts to furnish energy, provide material for builug andt repayirug lu1 bug..
and furnish substances to regulate body processes. r
The solution then would seem to lie in educating the food purchaser to obtain "`:
100 percent nutritional value from the food available. That is the mission of the :
National Wartime Nutrition Program. :
The September theme song of advertisers-better breakfasts and lunches, *
especially for children and war workers-will feature the use of the "Basle V' food i"
groups in the often-neglected first two meals of the day. Many nutrititon .o.
mittees will emphasize good breakfasts and lunches as they feature good nutrition ''
round the clock in three good meals a day.
Cornerstone of the program is the new and revised Official Wartimee OM i:
(NFC-4) showing the "Basic 7" categories of food which should be eate ,eery ,
day. Copies are available upon request. Also obtainable is a new free folder, Z.
"Eat a Good Breakfast to Start a Good Day" (AWI-107). Features Inelude:
a 3-point test for recognizing a good breakfast; analysis of some pattern meals
from light to hearty: and helps toward solving problems that keep some indl- a.J
viduals and households from getting a nourishing meal in the morning .
Nutrition, in everyday language, means eating three well-balanced meals a day ....
. built around the "Basic 7' appetizingly served and properly cooked to
preserve all the food values. .
