Ministry of Food War Cookery Leaflets

MoF Logo

Right from the start of the war, the Ministry of Food produced leaflets about different foods eg. green vegetables, different social groups eg. children and for different occasions eg. Christmas.  They were designed to reduce wastage, encourage home-growing, improving cooking and therefore improve the nutrition and diet of the nation.

My list is still being researched and I will add to it as I find the leaflets.
