Eat More Corn

This poster describes corn as a palatable and nutritious substitute for wheat.

If “palatable” and “nutritious” were not inspiration enough, this poster also made an appeal to patriotic sentiments with the text, “Corn Saved the Pilgrims and Fed Our Pioneers, Corn Will Help Us Feed the World.”

USDA, 1917.
