Food in the fifties!

In honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, I’ve pulled together our favourite facts about food in the fifties – ideal for quizzing the kids this weekend!

Did you know that….

We know lots of schools and families are using food to celebrate the Jubilee – let us know what you’ve been up to in the comment box below, or try Let’s Get Cooking’s street party recipes for the Jubilee.

Check for other free resources about fifties food from museums, libraries and archives online.
