The first edition of "Family Nutrition" was published in April 1942 and reviewed in the American Journal of Diseases of Children (64:762, 1942). The chief differences in the second edition are the inclusion of a chapter on "Menu Planning and Rationing," additional data in the chapter on the "Measuring of Nutritional Status" and a discussion of the more recently recognized members of the vitamin B complex in the chapter on "The Nutritional Needs of People."
