Dan Snow describes the food rations supplied for British soldiers during WW1 and compares these with what German soldiers had. The value of different foods is touched on and we learn that at the start of the war, German rations included more carbohydrates and alcohol but British rations had more variety and a thousand calories more.

Could be used to stimulate discussion about the various food items available to British and German soldiers in WW1 and what clues it gives us about the availability of food during WW1.
