Today we are going to have a look at food rationing. What else can you find out about food rationing?

 

During the rationing some people came up with some ……imaginative recipes. Can you find some unsual ones…. Here are some I found vinegar cake and carrot jam!!!!!

 

Below is a chart for what every adult and child is allowed to eat each week.

Can you answer the questions on the quiz below…..you can write down sums for each one to help you.

 

Adult

 

3 pints of milk             8oz   Sugar           

 

2oz  Tea                      2oz   Butter

 

4oz Margarine             3oz Lard               

 

3oz Cheese                  4oz Bacon

 

Meat. To the value of 1s. 2d. (6p today)

 

2oz Sweets                 2oz Jam                 1 Egg

 

 

*A child’s ration was exactly ½ the adult’s ration

 

 

Conversion Chart:

 

1 pound (1lb) = 453g                  

 

1 ounce (1 oz) = 28g               

 

1 pint = 568ml

 

 

Can you think of your own questions about food rations?
