The period of wartime food rationing is now regarded as a time when the nation was at its healthiest. Food rationing was introduced in January 1940 after food shipments were attacked by German U-boat 'Wolf Packs'. The first food items to be rationed were butter, sugar, bacon and ham, with restrictions also placed on meat, fish, jam, biscuits, cheese, eggs and milk.
The leaflets reproduced in "Eating for Victory" were distributed by the Ministry of Food and advised the general public on how to cope with these shortages. Typical contents include: recipes for steamed and boiled puddings; tips on how to use and prepare green vegetables; and hints about how to reconstitute dried eggs and use them as though they were fresh. As a result of the stringent rules put in place during wartime, people began to eat more healthily than ever before.
"Eating for Victory" is a great gift book and not only does it offer a nostalgic look back at one of the hardest and yet perhaps healthiest times in history, but it is also a relevant guide on healthy eating for today.
