SLJ Week 3 day 1 Activity 1 - Meat and three Veg

It was common for women in the 1950s to stay home with their children and raise their family. They were called ‘housewives.’ Many housewives followed a simple rule when they prepared the evening meal: the ‘meat and three veg’ rule. This meant that they prepared dinners that included three different vegetables and a type of meat (eg. beef, lamb, or chicken).

I think that the Meat and three veg is a bad rule because this is very boring if eat the same everyday . I don't like this rule as these days different variety of food available and I also would not enjoy eating much vegetables.

  1. Kia ora Alex,

    My name is Megan and I am part of the Summer Learing Journey team who has been commenting on your posts over the Summer.

    I absolutely agree with you Alex. The meat and three veg rule would get very boring. When I was growing up my Mum was definitely a meat and 3 veg kind of cook and dinner was definitely not exciting. It is definitely an easy way to cook as you don't have to put much thought into dinner. However, I think you are right in that there is so much variety around today that you can think beyond the meat and three veg.

    Can you think of a meal you like that typically breaks the meat and three veg rule?

    I hope you have had a wonderful summer,
    Megan :)
