Dietaries employed by the author for twenty years for infants, children and adults in health and in disease are presented under captions of disease or other titles arranged in alphabetical sequence for ready reference. The theories of nutrition are not considered, the purpose of the book being entirely practical. Foods listed are classified under the headings of "permitted" and "forbidden." "Type meals" are incorporated wherever deemed necessary. The book should be suggestive to physicians in planning out diets and of service in the prescribing of dietaries.
