WASHINGTON, March 28, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
MONDAY, MARCH 28: EATING WELL
Profile America -- Monday, March 28th. 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 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 packaged fish in 1925. Frozen food became increasingly popular after World War II, as refrigerated trains and trucks were able to carry it to all parts of the nation. Now, every refrigerator has a fairly ample freezer. 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, online at www.census.gov.
