Nutrition: Then and Now

678 views

Published on

New information becomes available in our constantly
changing world of nutrition. Even with all of
the new technology and advances of our time, we
cannot forget wisdom from the past. This lesson
examines U.S. Food Administration guidelines from
World War I and compares them with present-day
U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines. The more
things change, the more they stay the same.
