In this new edition, additions have been made in the chapter dealing with diets for sick children. Technical data concerning vitamin supplements and the composition of certain proprietary foods are included. In view of current trends, overemphasis is given to the various aspects of breast feeding. The book is designed for distribution in England and the British possessions and therefore many of the articles of food listed among the diets for both sick and well children are unfamiliar and not available for American consumption. The format of the publication is pleasing, and the printing, excellent. Acknowledgements are made in the footnotes to various authors, but most of the footnotes are to material published between 1944 and 1953.
