This monograph on family nutrition is a complete treatise. Much of the material is closely set in long lines of relatively small type, which does not make for easy reading. For the student of nutrition, the teacher or the demonstrator, this manual should be exceptionally valuable. It is on too high a scientific level for the vast majority of housewives. Yet it contains much material of great value to precisely this group. The chapter on the dietary value of common foods, and especially the illustrative pages facing the text, is not only informative but is the most readable part of the entire booklet. An excellent feature is the full page bleed-off illustrations and many of the diagrams. Another valuable feature is that beginning on page 70, which shows a week of good meals for children, for boys and girls, for adolescents, for expectant mothers and for various family income groups.
