That's the question of interest to every homcmakcr In Ihe land, for the health of the family depends largely on Ihe kinds and amounts of food they eat, Is there n chance that vour family Is eating plenty of food—perhaps too much—but still not getting all, the nutrients needed for good nutrition? Most of the foods we cat supply several different food nutrients—none supplies them all. Eating a variety of foods is a cood way to Include nil 7 food groups In the diet. A recent study of the diels of farm families showed that many are short-changing themselves on three Important kinds of food: milk, citrus fruits, and green and yellow vegetables. And this (n n land where both food production und Incomes are high. One thing the survey brought out again and again was that families who produce a large part of their food have better meals than those who don't. Of those families who raised more than $200 worth of their own food, the number whose diets contained enough calcium, vitamin A and ascorbic aclri was half again as high as among those with home-produced foorl valued at less than slOO.'The average expense for food of these two groups was about the same. Farm families that :ild not product their own milk used very litllc of this most Important calcium-supplying tocxl so necessary for strong bones and good teelh. How Important home producer! food is to good family meals is shown by the fact that even when families can afford to buy most of their food they do not make as good choices nor ent as much of the right foods as when they have foods direct from their farm. Now for a brief outline of what makes meals measure up. Aliss flora Carl. Missouri University nutritionist, says for good nutrition each person should eat the?e foods daily: creen or yellow vegetables—1 large serving; citrus fruit, tomatoes, raw cabbage or raw greens—1 serving: potatoes or other vegetables anrt fruits—3 or 3 servings: rMlk — 2 cups for adults. 3 or 4 for children: meat, poultry, or fish—1 or more servings. and eggs—one each day. (Dried beans, peas, oeanul bulter and nut 1 al'o are high in food values.' Whole grain or enriched breads and cereals—some each meal; and butter or fortified margarine—2 to 3 level tablespoons.
