POTATOES Once a Day Is Enough for Young Children Queries HE necessity of guarding the I food supply of young and assuring to them an abun dant diet ot properly selected Is assuming every day a more

better off with Bomo of these dietary It is not always truo that young children will profit by the same Tho childs dietary requirements are less flexible than are those of grown per and Insufficient or Unsuitable food Is likely to have serious conse quences for the growing Authorities on the subject state that there iSpractically no substitute either for milk or green vegetables in tho food of the growing Mlllc should bo given In many Is one of the best of green vegetablesIt can bo prepared in a number of ways and should be used freely In the dally Fish and chicken are bettor for children

matter of ne There seems to bo no why such food may not be as whole some as If properly cooked Mothers may need to be warned that all and particularly tho coarser liko oatmeal and need very long coolring to be suitable for Therefore It stands to reason that tho quick breads and griddle which have been ex posed to cooking heat perhaps only a few will hot be well di gested and that all preparations of cereals should be subjected to slow cooking if they are to entor into the diet of young At this aro being urged to cat all the potatoes possible as another substitute for The request is made that families shall cat potatoes three times a but this Is not Intend ed to apply literally to the youngest who would not get a suf ficient variety of food in the day3 meals if given potatoes at each The manner of cooking potatoes must be constantly varied or the family will tiro of The methods will include frying and to the adult if well but not suitable to young chil It Is for remember that children under flvo will hardly able to cat potatoes more than once a and that for them this vegetable ia bet ter when mashed or freshly boiled and served simply with the addition of a little salt and milk or Thus prepared they are so completely cooked and so finely divided that children do not swallow them in on the other makes foods generally less A GENTLEMAN always shuts his cyea when
