U.S. Census Bureau Daily Feature for March 30
SUNDAY, MARCH 30: EATING WELL
Profile America -- Sunday, March 30th. This month has been set aside to recognize a number of various causes. Two of these seem to go hand in hand, National Nutrition Month and National Frozen Food Month. The goal of the first is to 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. 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, close to a third of U.S. homes have a separate freezer aside from their refrigerators. And the complimentary appliance a microwave oven is in more than nine-out-of-10 homes. You can find these and more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau on the Web at http://www.census.gov.
