Why does a housewife concerned for her family's welfare feed them so inadequately that she endangers their very lives? The film is a humorous and satirical attempt to remind the average housewife that it is not enough to be aware of modern food facts; they must also be applied in daily food purchasing and preparation.

    Misinformed, misguided, and indifferent -- a prominent phenomenon of a majority of the Western population with regards to food, nutrition, and health. Over 50 years old and this short has managed to remain at least that relevant!
