Sturdy little youngsters, with plenty of playful vitality in them, need lots of nourishment. They burn up food like steam engines and they need extra food value to grow big and strong-on. It's up to the mother, in most instances, to see that children get the nourishment they need by selecting the most wholesome, body-building foods. The perpetual hunger of the growing boy or girl is known to every despairing parent. Many people do not realize how much this hunger is guided by nature. The child must have ample foods containing protein to build borly tissues. Milk, meat, cheese and fish are outstanding foods in this group but the .child must also receive an abundant supply of energy- producing food to provide fuel for the incessant activity. Bread is Leader. Bread is the leader of energy producing foods. The hunger of children when they come in from playing a strenuous game is often a plea from their exhausted bodies for energy to replace that used. It is then that a peanut butter sandwich with an apple or other fruit or a, lettuce sandwich with a glass of milk will be of real value. Systematic serving of this mid-afternoon snack will prevent over eating at the tegular meal with consequent digestive disturbances and it will obviate the habit prevalent in children of asking for something to eat every time they come into the house. It is a good practice for the mother to make up a few sandwiches as the noon meal is cleared away, wrap them in waxed paper and have them ready for the afternoon onslaught of hungry children. 100 Calories in Slice. An average slice of bread will provide approximately 100 calories. TJje butter which is spread on the bread will provide another 100 calories.

C. H. Lennan, manager of the Mason City Baking company, 319 Delaware avenue southeast, gives three reasons why the bakery's All-Butter bread is unusually beneficial to children. It contains more and richer milk than ordinary bread; butter is used in abundance as shortening to make the bread more nourishing; and the product is baked to a golden brown so that all its nutrition is available for quick assimilation. All-Butter bread is rr.mle exclusively in northeastern Iowa by the Mason City Baiting company. The bread carries tbe seal of approval of the Committee on Foods of the American Medical association.

That star-crossed lover, Juliet, who cried "What's in a name?" had nothing on thousands of innocent infants who every year are given a bad start with an unwisely chosen name. Something may be said in favor of parents who merely give their children initials and let them choose names when they grow up. There really is quite a bit in a name. For instance, Franklin means a free man. On the other hand Dillinger's first name, John, means "the LorJ graciously givcth." And if he doesn't, it is to be supposed that John taketh.
