We are studying what life was like in WWII this term. On Monday we investigated how much food people would get in the war. We found out that rationing started because they didn’t have enough food for everyone. People were only allowed 2oz butter ,8oz sugar, 2oz cheese ,4oz bacon and ham ,40z marg ,3 pints milk , 2oz tea , 1 fresh egg , 1 packet of dried eggs every 4 weeks.
On the 8th of January 1940 butter , bacon and sugar were rationed.
People had rationing books so they could get their food each week. Adults got more food than children.
