Helen Zoe Veit specializes in American history in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, focusing on the history of food and nutrition. She received her Ph.D. in 2008 from Yale University, where she won the Edwin Small Prize for an outstanding dissertation in American history. Her first book, Modern Food, Moral Food: Self-Control, Science, and the Rise of Modern American Eating in the Early Twentieth Century (University of North Carolina Press, Fall 2013) explores food and nutrition in the Progressive Era. Modern Food, Moral Food was a finalist for the James Beard prize in Reference and Scholarship. She is the editor of the American Food in History book series with Michigan State University Press. The first book in the series, Food in the Civil War Era: The North, was released in May 2014. Her next book, Small Appetites: A History of Children's Food, examines the history of children's eating during the last two hundred years.
She is also director of the What America Ate project, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Launched in spring 2014, What America Ate is a three-year project to create a digital archive and interactive website on food in the Great Depression.
