Quote:
(B) Fewer convenience foods were available to the parents.

parents' time:
few conv. foods available=>more nutriens=>less nutritional def.

de facto "grade-school students show less nutritional deficiency than in their parents' time"

=> nutritionists are wrong

all other answers are out of scope.
