Whether the homemaker buys much or little food, she needs to know her market, the variety of foods offered arid how to make-economical choices. The increased variety of foods on the market today has made her choice more difficult. Proper choice is possible only when she understands (l) the food needs of her family, (2) how much money she ha to spend, and (3) the quality and cost of the products. She can be an important influence in bringing about better marketing conditions. Accurate information is her first need. This bulletin is intended to discuss with the homemaker her problems as a buyer of food, some aids available in the selection of various foods, and her responsibility as a buyer.
