War–time Catering in Canteens


    A BOOKLET has just been issued by the Ministry of Food for the benefit of ‘British Restaurants’, industrial canteens and other large–scale feeding–centres. This booklet has been compiled as a result of a nine–months investigation and experiment in industrial canteens in all parts of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, and all recipes have been tested in such canteens. Each day's suggested meal has been built up on the principle of the Oslo breakfast, to provide in one meal a high proportion of the day's requirements of essential vitamins and mineral salts. Averaged over six consecutive days, the analysis is as high as that of the Oslo breakfast.
