Review Text

  • By R. A. Caton on 24 May 2012

    It is emphasised that "The information in this book was issued by the MoI in 1943 and MUST not be taken as Government or Imperial War Museum advice" ahhhh the legal requirements of our present (2007) day.This little booklet reprinted (back in 1943) fifteen broadcast talks giving advice on diet, making the most of the rationed foodstuffs available then and on staying fit generally.Anyone who has heard Dr Hill's measured tones (most recently via the archive recording on the subject of Boxing Day digestive troubles) will hear that rolling voice declaiming the texts contained here.Why did I buy it? I need advice, not dressed up in jargon or the mumbo-jumbo of modern food gurus, on how to live better or at least more efficiently on what is an increasingly limited income, and it strikes me that the necessities of rationing have a lot to say to us in our overprocessed, overweight and overnannied world.I shall probably buy more of these reprints - success to the I.W.M!Thought: Given the popularity of AudioBooks these days, why not reissue the archived (if they ARE archived) broadcasts?

    Excellent little book that may seem a bit dated but has a common sense approach to sensible eating without all the weird fads that are so popular these days. The objective of this booklet during the war years was simple; to keep people healthy through their diet. Not quite a 5 star but maybe a 4.5 Star.

    A very interesting read. It is an insight into the way the Ministry of Food approached its role an era of extreme challenges when it came to feeding a family. It is a social commentary as well as an informative read regarding nutrition.

    This was an interesting book which introduced an element of war time experiences. The content was interesting and informative. The book was value for money.
