I Like its G O O D Taste . . . and though ke doesn't know it, BREAD contains elements Vital to Health! HE reaction to the taste of Fayette bread is the same in either children or grown-ups . . . It is good! But more im- poirtant, perhaps, is the fact that Fayette bread promotes health and vitality . . . it supplies certain definite bodily needs essential to perfect health. Bread is widely known as being one, of the most nearly perfect foods . . . more than 96% is used by the human body. HIS extremely high degree of assimilation is caused by an abundance of nutritive elements. Foremost among these are carbohydrates, the vitalizing energy clement which is contained to the extent of 55% in every loaf of bread. Equally important is the abundance of p r o t e i n s which arc great muscle builders and aids in the repair of body tissues. In this way, bread supplies two of the most important nutritive elements . . . properly balanced in quantity to suit their respective functions. ORDER FROM YOUR FAVORITE GROCER. ASK FOR IT BY NAME!
