Eat Sugar, Starch and Fat!

The Guardian has an article showcasing some of Nanny's poster campaigns (eg exhorting us to wash our hands before eating) from a bygone era.

One particular poster (see above) caught my eye, it was published in 1954 by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food.

Can you spot what caught my eye children?

Yes, that's right, Nanny is recommending that we eat certain foods (eg milk, cheese, meat, fat and sugar) that she absolutely loathes nowadays. Oddly enough a 1998 study by the Medical Research Council found that children in the 1950s were healthier than their 1990s counterparts.

Given that whatever Nanny advises us to eat changes on a whim, what are we to do?

Answer: Ignore her advice!

Visit The Orifice of Government Commerce and buy a collector's item.

Visit The Joy of Lard and indulge your lard fantasies.

Show your contempt for Nanny by buying a T shirt or thong from Nanny's Store. is brought to you by "The Living Brand"

  1. I suspect people needed a few more calories at this time in our history. We never had all the labour saving devices back then and far fewer chores and working practices were automated. The real irony for me is this; we use remote controls to turn over the TV channel, we take lifts and escalators instead of the stairs, we have electric windows on our cars, automatic washing machines etc etc however, having saved all that energy, we then spend a fortune on gym membership just to burn off all those saved calories!

    I suspect many people these days eat far too much cheap, processed foods which we didn't have back then. I tend not to eat any mah nah mah nah processed foods at all and cook everything from scratch using fresh, seasonal ingredients or, to put it another way, I just do what I've always done just as I'm sure, people born recently will continue to eat manufactured food stuff.

    At the risk of sounding like a stuck record, everything in moderation and you won't go far wrong.

    Note for youngsters; A record was a black, plastic disk which was used in conjunction with a record player, to provide musical entertainment during the middle of the last century. The disk had a groove on each side and, when a stylus was put into that groove and the record was rotated at a steady speed of either 78, 45 or 33 revolutions per minute by the record player, an audio sound was produced and we could listen to modern, four piece beat combos, such as the Rolling Stones or The Beatles, in much the same way as you listen to Snoop Dog and The Kaiser Chiefs etc.....You may laugh and think I'm taking the piss or being patronising but, only this week, my hairdresser came to my home with her twelve year old son and he had never even heard of records and had not a clue what they were.
