TRESCASTRO LOPEZ, E. M.ª; GALIANA SANCHEZ, M.ª E. y BERNABEU-MESTRE, J.. The food and nutrition program (1961-1982) and the training of housewives as family welfare managers. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2012, vol.27, n.4, pp.955-963. ISSN 0212-1611. http://dx.doi.org/10.3305/nh.2012.27.4.5815.
This study provides a gender-based analysis of the Food and Nutrition Education Program, developed in Spain over the last decades of the 20th century, to explore nutrition education messages and strategies aimed at improving the skills of housewives as guardians of family welfare and experts in all areas of household management. The Program's specific approach to housewives, and the assumptions on which it was based, further entrenched a social model of gender in which men were solely responsible for household income and women were family carers.
