The modern tendency in the feeding of infants and children is to broaden the diet to include a greater variety of foods. Nevertheless there seem to be more and more children who have to be made to eat. The cause may lie in failure to make the foods attractive. In this book, many dishes have been suggested that will do for the entire family and, particularly, will provide the child with a varied and wholesome diet. Dishes that call for the use of excessive amounts of sugar, starches, cream and butter have been omitted. Mothers and nurses who use the book will find it helpful in making meals attractive and aid in combating the problem of poor appetite in a child.
