This book, intended for the housewife, is a result of the nutrition program of the Chester County Emergency Child Health Committee formed under the auspices of the Chester County Medical Society and as a unit of the Emergency Child Health Committee of Pennsylvania. It states in simple and practical form some of the latest information on foods for promoting the proper feeding of people, especially children. Recipes and menus with an explanation of the essential foods and the methods for their purchase and preparation are included. The less money to spend for food, the more important it is to spend it wisely. The booklet serves the purpose of instructing on this problem and should enable the average citizen to prepare well balanced diets at low cost. It will be especially helpful to those interested in the emergency feeding of the poor.
