Abstract: In the Annual Review of Medicine published by Stanford University, the statement is made that "nutrition is the single most important environmental factor affecting the health of Americans .... It enters into all aspects of health including mental health."1 While interest in eating is innate, the public will be fed adequately only if a program is provided which will interest people in eating health-giving foods. The continuing existence of underfed groups and individuals throughout our population makes one suspect that nutrition education needs improvement.
