Creator: Federal Security Agency
Date: 1942
This poster is the first in a set of three nutrition posters promoting the use of whole wheat and enriched flour. A unique chart is printed on each side of the poster. The Office of Defense, Health, and Services developed this set. Franklin Delano Roosevelt established the office in 1941. It was later replaced by the Office of Community War Services. During World War II, Americans' health became a national security issue. The goal of this office was to provide information about healthy food, give daily intake recommendations, create flour enrichment programs, and put a government seal on nutritious foods. This poster promotes both wheat flour and enriched flour as part of a healthy diet. Enriched flour had added thiamine, which was thought to increase energy and motivation. These posters belonged to Catharine E. Zink of Lincoln, Kansas. Zink was a home economics teacher at Lincoln High School and occasionally taught at the Girls Correctional School in Beloit, Kansas.
