Israel's Immigrant
Food, Dietary Survey
Made Public by UN

UNITED NATIONS, N. Y.,
(JTA) — Israeli scientists and
medical authorities, aided by
two United Nations agencies,
are conducting a special food
and dietary survey among im-
migrants in Israel, to determine
the food and diet habits of the
newcomers and methods for
helping them eliminate disease
and reduce infant mortality, ac-
cording to a UN report pub-
lished here. The report appears
in the monthly "United Nations
Review." an official publication
of the UN.
Dr. Sarah Bavly, head of the
College of Nutrition and Home
Economics in Jerusalem, is in
charge of the survey, aided by
physicians of the Ha d. a s s a h
Medical School and the Israel
Government's Central Bureau
of Statistics and Economic Re-
search. On behalf of the United
Nations, the project is being
aided by the United Nations
Children's Fund and the World
Health Organization. The Israel
government is meeting four-
sevenths of the cost involved.
the remainder being con-
tributed by the UN agencies.
Especially-trained senior girl
students from the College of
Nutrition and Home Economics
in Jerusalem are conducting the
survey among 800 Israeli fami-
lies, selected on the basis of
economic and ethnic grouping.

of occupation or work. The
study includes a survey of food
habits among Israelis who had
immigrated from Cochin, India.

co, Poland, Rumania and Latin
America.
The UN report also points
out that the school feeding pro-
gram in Israel, helped by
UNICEF, reaches about 120.000
children with a daily lunch, as
well as 65,000 children with a
cup of cocoa milk. This pro-
gram, says the report. is con-
sidered an excellent way of
teaching nutritious food educa-
tion. "Both boys and girls,"
continues the report, "are
'taught how to — and in prac-
tice they do — cook, prepare
and serve meals for their fel-
lows in daily shifts. They can
go home and teach mother a
thing or two."
