When a child goes into
a slump—check his food
intake carefully—ffcis wayl
Children, now then, as you know, go
into a slump. They become dull or apa
thetic, or sometimes they lose weight or
fail to gain.
At times like these, check the food in
take carefully. Always keep in mind that
a child needs, proportionately, 2 to 3 times
as much of certain foods as adults; these
food elements such as protein, calcium,
iron, vitamins B,, C, niacin and riboflavin
may be called the “spark plugs” of robust
health and vitality. A child needs lots of
them. A lack of one or more can cause a
slump. And—please note this—they are
the very elements most apt to be deficient
in average meals.
Of course, a fully adequate diet can be
selected from ordinary foods, but it's dif
ficult to be sure you’re right. And so, to
day, busy, intelligent mothers employ an
easier method that virtually assures an
adequate diet. They use a supplementary
food like Ovaltine. The purpose of a sup
plementary food is to fill in the chinks,
gaps, loopholes that may occur in ordi
nary meals; it supplies those rarer de
ments most easily lost in cooking, most
apt to be lacking—based upon the study
of thousands of meals served in average
Ovaltine, mixed with milk, contains
practically all the vitamins and minerals
necessary to bring the ordinary meal up
to the full requirements of a growing
child. It also provides an extra supple
ment of high quality proteins.
Ovaltine has the additional advantage
of being so processed that even a child
with a delicate stomach can digest and
absorb it readily.
So why don’t you join thousands of
other mothers in this health insurance
program. Give 2 to 3 glasses of Ovaltine
daily in addition to regular meals. Then
you can be sute you have done just about
everything you can do to insure proper
nutrition for your child.
