Excerpt from Feeding the Family
While many things contribute to health, - sleep, fresh air, and exercise, for instance, - the foremost consideration is food. This is recognized to-day as never before, and those who regard their own welfare and desire to give their children the best possible equipment for the stress of modern life are asking how to choose food wisely. So many kinds of food are displayed in our markets, and so many placards offer warning or advice about what to eat, that a guidebook to good nutrition would seem quite essential for the twentieth century family. The purpose of the author has been to provide such a little book for the numerous housewives who prepare something like a thousand meals a year for their families and who wish to know how the science of nutrition can be made to function most successfully in their daily lives.
Much literature has been published in regard to food and diet, but it is not a simple matter to collect and organize it for one's own use in the midst of all the, cares of a household. In the present Volume separate chapters are devoted to the special food needs of the different members of a typical family group - babies, growing children, adult men and women, aged persons - after which some space is devoted to a consideration of the food problems related to the family group as a whole.
