from Feeding the Child from Two to Six
by Mary Frances Barnes
New York: Macmillan Company, 1928

A study emerging from an Indiana orphanage suggests that institutionalized feeding, based on dietetic principles, provides healthier diets for orphans than those fed at home. This book, based on scientific understandings of nutrition without "burdening the mother with theory," is a guide for the preparation of food and the feeding of children. Containing schedules, menus, and recipes, it presents well-balanced, appetizing, and satisfying meals which promote normal growth and development.

"Think of it! The average little orphan healthier than the child with a mother's care!"
