The Great Depression and The Nutrition Police


I was recently given some old copies of, The Educator” magazine from the late 1920’s and early 30’s. I was previously unaware that the nutrition police were already at work back then but I was even more surprised to find that their focus was somewhat different. Who knew that getting fat, eating sugar, and drinking a quart of evaporated milk every day were good things to do in school.
I hope you will find the following taken from that magazine interesting. Apparently starving changes your outlook on high calorie foods.

About safrisri

I was a school teacher until retirement. I have taught at all educational levels from pre-school to college. My college degree is general science which I arrived at after 5 years and 5 different majors. A degree as it turns out, almost as valuable and in demand as one in Neo-Bulgarian Mythology. I have been around education for around 40 years and can remember when teaching was a pleasant, happy and creative job and our schools were the same. Now I'm the guy sitting on the porch with an opinion on everything.
