In eight pages, one of which is devoted to an index, this pamphlet gives the food values of common foods and beverages in terms of common household measures, such as cups, tea-spoons, slices of bread or meat, crackers, pats of butter and ordinary size individual fruits. Such caloric tables are necessarily approximate but are nevertheless useful to the individual who cannot or will not weigh his food. The pamphlet includes no recommendations for any kind of diet. Its compact form and convenient size should make it useful to any one interested in dietary regulation or compelled to cook for or serve such a person.
