Baran, Nancy H., Ed.
This student/teacher resource booklet provides information on conserving food dollars while providing nutritious meals. The guide shows how to set up a food budget and explains how scanning the weekly food ads, planning meals around the specials, and compiling a list accordingly can also help consumers get more for their food dollars. Numerous shopping tips are included. The booklet shows how to recognize quality in meat, poultry, fish, and produce. It discusses food labeling; government grades and standards; open dating; food safety, storage, and handling; and home gardening. It also explores a variety of shopping alternatives, from warehouse stores to farmers' markets. The nutrition section includes, in addition to the U.S. Daily Food Guide, an analysis of an adequate diet, an exploration of changing eating habits, and the latest trends in food merchandising, from new packaging to hypermarkets. Suggested resources include organizations, books, and pamphlets. (KC)
