It has been suggested that there are two aspects to nutrition teaching, information and motivation, and that while we are succeeding at present with one, we are failing with the other. But there are also indications that teaching of information could be improved. Surveys show that general nutrition understanding is poor and that nutrition ideas carry little conviction: they may be ‘brought out on Sundays’, but are not really much used by housewives unless they coincide with folk ideas such as those setting a high value on meat or milk.
