Foodnational dietary standardsis a sensitive index of socioeconomic conditions generally there are others, reflecting different aspects, but none more sensitive. A country that eats well has healthy, robust people the housewife who cooks hearty, nourishing meals has a lusty, virile family. It is not surprising, therefore, that all governments of the world have a food policy, ranking high in its priorities and are usually prepared to sacrifice other national policies to preserve it.
