4 July 2014 – BBC Radio Interview

Thierry Clerc, a a clinical homeopath and a nutritionist  based in Cambridge (UK),  has been interviewed on the Andie Harper Show for the 60-year anniversary of the end of WW2 war food rationing in the UK.

Thierry Clerc discusses the nutritional value of a typical weekly ration for an adult. These rations fluctuated throughout the war – these are the lowest they fell – Sugar: 8oz, Preserves: 1.5oz, Tea: 2oz, Bacon and ham: 4oz, Meat: One shilling-worth, Cheese 1oz, Butter: 4oz. There was further ration of cooking fat and margarine. As the system gathered momentum, the ordinary ration came to encompass other products. There was also a separate points system for canned food, dry goods and other groceries. Clothing and petrol were also rationed. Vegetables were unlimited. http://www.bbc.co.uk/radiocambridgeshire

We discussed the nutritional content of the ration and also compared its nutritional value compared to a modern carbohydrate-rich diet.
