NUTRITION AND FROZEN FOOD

Profile AmericaSaturday, March 15th. A number of various causes are recognized in March. Two of these seem to go hand in hand, or hand to mouth — National Nutrition Month and National Frozen Food Month. The goal of the first is make consumers aware of just how easy it is to eat healthy meals. And one of the ways this is possible is because of frozen food. Developed by Clarence Birdseye, the first commercially available frozen food was fish in 1925. Frozen food became increasingly popular as refrigerated freight trains and trucks were able to carry it to all parts of the nation. Today in the U.S., some 3,500 packaged frozen food wholesalers sell $85 billion worth of heat and eat products. You can find current data on the country's economy by downloading the 'America's Economy' mobile application at www.census.gov/mobile.
