One of the great educational videos from the 1950’s, Eat for Health follows a typical young boy named Ralph who spoils his dinner with junk food, and then wonders why he has no energy all day. The film then enters into some amusing nutrition facts, like suggesting that everyone should eat an egg every day! Ralph learns from the narrator to count off the five basic food groups on his fingers in order to make sure he eats a more balanced healthy diet. Soon Ralph is back to his peppy self again. Produced by Encyclopedia Britannica, this movie is hilariously old fashioned and offers some absolutely antiquated healthy eating guidelines and discusses the effects of junk food.
