This book is chiefly concerned with diet and eating problems. In the back of the book there is a table on food analysis. The book is interestingly written and is easily read. Dietary advice is given for pregnancy and the lactation period and for the baby at different ages. The point is made that both parents should be on a well-balanced diet before conception.

The reviewer believes this is a valuable book, especially as a reference book for the home.
