Eat less sugar. Go meatless on Mondays and provide nourishing school lunches for children.
What if I told you that was advice respectively of Uncle Sam during World War II, President Herbert Hoover and the original school lunch program launched in the 1940′s. As the saying goes, the more things change, the more they remain the same. If you want to know about the impact that Uncle Sam has had on what we eat, then check out the Website for What’s Cooking Uncle Sam, the wonderful exhibit at the National Archives that sadly ends today. So if you happen to be in Washington, DC, you still have today to see it. I highly recommend it.
There’s a lot of debate these days about the size and role of government. What impact do you think that Uncle Sam has–or should have–on what we eat?
