VINTAGE POSTER SUNDAY, TURN OVER A NEW LEAF

Photo courtesy of Dallas Historical Society
This was apparently a poster during/just after WWII but the image has cut off the details of the date and who put it out.  I'm guessing it was of course tied into trying to get people to eat more vegetables during the war effort.  It's also possible this was post war and was jut part of the healthy eating movement that experienced a resurgence in the 1950's.

Nothing wrong with that and the message today is just as clear as it was then, more veggies = good health.

UPDATE:  Thanks to Sunnybrook Farm for finding this information:

Poster by Fitton showing a selection of vegetables, produced for the Ministry of Food. The poster was designed to encourage people to eat vegetables which contain Vitamins A, C and K, as well as iron, protein and zinc, all necessary in a healthy balanced diet.
