UNCLE SAM TELLS HOUSEWIVES HOW THEY
WASTE FOOD, A VALUABLE WEAPON
This is one of a series of six arti
cles written especially by the food
experts of the U. S. dep't of agricul
ture at Washington, and calculated
to help housewives put their kitchens
on a war-time basis, made necessary
by the menacing food shortage.
BY THE U. S. DEPARTMENT OF
Food is wasted:
(a) When we eat more food than
our bodies need for actual growth
and "repair and to supply eenrgy for
Overeating tends to poor health
and fat instead of brawn; makes us
sluggish and indolent instead of ener
getic and resourceful. Eat enough
and NO MORE. Eat for physical
and mental efficiency.
(b) When food is burned or spoiled
Improperly prepared or poorly sea
soned food will be left on the table
and probably wasted. Buy food wise
ly and then prepare it carefully.
(c) When too much food is pre
pared for a meal.
Unserved portions are apt to be
thrown into the garbage pail or al
lowed to spoil. Many housekeepers
do not know how to use left-over
foods to make appetizing dishes.
(d) When too much food is served
at a meal.
Uneaten portions are left on the
plate and later thrown into the gar
bage pail. Learn to know the needs
of your family and serve no more
than you think they will want
(e) When food is handled care
lessly. Buy clean food, keep it clean until
used, and be neat in all details of
cooking and serving. This lessens
waste and is a valuable health meas
ure as well.
Feed your own family first.
Don't feed high-priced human food
to hogs or chickens.
Don't send valuable food to the in
cinerator or the fertilizer heap.
Don't pour into the sewer nourish
ing food in the shape of milk, skim
milk, sweet or sour, soup, gravy or
melted fat, or water in which cereals
or vegetables have been cooked.
Keep good food out of your gar
bage pail and kitchen sink.
Demonstrate thrift in your home.
Make saving, rather than spend
ing, your social standard.
How much is a minute?
Not if a woman knows herself. No,
sir. Turn a woman loose with one
of those little white spaces on the
clock and she'll stretch it out of all
semblance to its former self.
Daylight saving is nothing in her
This is not a complaint It's just
a statement of one of the funda
mental principles of matrimony.
