Even the twins who look as much alike as two peas in a pod, eat differently Perhaps one of them spoons in food with his left hand, while the other operates steadily with his right So watch out for your own youngster's particular quirks. Give him nutritious food but don't worry if, once in a while, he shows some tem- perment about eating. Is he ready to feed himself? Even though his spoon seems to hit his ear of tener than it goes to his mouth it's best to let a child feed himself when the urge to do so comes upon him. If you are patient, uncritical and casual, he'll soon learn to use those eating utensils easily and well. And he'll get a lot of satisfaction out of his self-reliance, too. Does he go on a food jag occasionally? Has he been eating all his cerial and junior fruits " but leaving his milk? Then be versatile!

Don't ask him to .take a bite of carrot "for Cinderella" and a spoonful of spinach "for Little Jack Horn- Substantial Dish: Eggplant Baked and Stuffed, It's a Main Course BAKED STUFFED EGGPLANT Ingridients: 1, eggplant (about 1 Inches long and 4 inches across). 2 tablespoons butter or margarine or bacon drippings, M cup finely diced onion, *4 cup finely diced green pepper, % cup finely diced celery, one No. 303 can (1 pound tomatoes, % cup lightly drained canned cut okra, salt and pepper, allspice, 1/3 cup fine dry bread crumbs, grated Cheddar cheese.

And never were parties more fun than they are today, because modern people look so good, feel so good, dress so well. For, these days, everybody has learned it pays, in health as well as looks, to keep waistlines down and figures slender. Heavy, over-rich foods are out of date. The modern taste is for lighter, less rilling foods and beverages. That is the change with which Pepsi-Cola has steadily kept pace. Today's Pepsi is light, dry (not too sweet), reduced in calories. That's why Pepsi-Cola is more popular than ever.
