Diet survey, 1947

This report details the results of a survey carried out in 1947 to compare and assess the diets of women in London and Birmingham. It concluded that there was a strong link between diet and social conditions, and also that the diet of the Birmingham women was inferior to that of their contemporaries in London. Although in the interwar period new estates had been built on the outskirts of Birmingham, there was still a large amount of substandard housing towards the city centre. This survey underlines the effects that living in these 'slums' had on their inhabitants.
