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 http://www.mylearning.org/food-in-the-1950s/p-1676/ for other free resources about fifties food from museums, libraries and archives online.

You can also look at pictures of typical supermarket layout from the fifties at http://www.woolworthsmuseum.co.uk/1950s-i-grocery.htm
