Abstract:  This nutrition handbook explains that today's large chain supermarkets stock over 10,000 items from which we must choose to get the most for our food dollar, both nutritionally and economically. This excessively wide variety of items and the way in which they are processed, packaged, and displayed make wise buying a difficult task.

This handbook intends to assist you in buying wisely in spite of these difficulties. It attempts to provide answers to some of the more frequently asked questions about food buying like: "What are the basic nutritive requirements and what foods fulfil them?"; "What are some inexpensive, but equally nutritious meat substitutes?"; "Which convenience foods actually cost less than their homemade counterparts?" More importantly, it briefly describes the food industry, its development and impact on the quality and cost of food, and offers strategies and alternatives to help you win the most for your food dollar.
