I mmmmimmmammmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I inll'Tini J-IaM.,,,.m.'m jj Feeding the Growing Child i During the Second Year (This is the first of series of arti cles furnished by the United States commissioner of health. The articles will appear once week). Much of the illness and suffering among babies commonty attributed to the "second summer" or to teething is actually due to errors In feeding. The baby s delicate digestive mechan ism, accustomed to dealing only with milk, cannot all at once undertake the task of adjustment to a varied diet of solid foods, but must be strength ened by the gradual addition of new foods until the organs are trained to more complicated operations. The safe rule for feeding the baby is to add but one new food at a time to his dietary; to watch carefully the ef fect of each one and to withdraw it and return to the simpler diet at the first sign of trouble, ihese rules are particularly important in summer, when a baby is more readily upset. The following list shows the day's meals for a baby in his second year: T a. m., milk, awlebaek, toait or drltd bread. - S a. m., orange Julca. 10 a. m cereal, cup of rfllk. , S p. m., broth, meat, vegetable, stale bread, baked apple. S p. m., cereal, milk, toaat or bread, 10 p. m., milk (may be omitted. Milk At this time the baby should be taking about one quart of milk in twenty-four hours; part of this may, be poured over the cereal, Cereals Oatmeal should be cooked three hours, with a little salt in the water. It should be served without sugar or with a very little only. The lighter cereals should be cooked at least an hour. ' Breads Bread for young children must have been thoroughly baked and should beuite dry when used; that is, at least two days old. Tender toast is made by cutting thin slices from such a loaf and allowing them to dry still more, then toasting them to a delicate brown over a quick fire. Toast thus made is crisp all the way through and may be used in many ways. Many children will, like to eat it broken into bits in broth or milk. Hot breads and biscuits, griddle cakes and muf fins are not suitable for young chil dren. Fruit The chjld may have a small portion of baked apple or prunes once a day in addition to his morning feed ing of orange juice. The apple should be baked very tender, and all the skin, seeds and hard parts should be re moved. Prunes should b very care fully washed, soaked alt night, then cooked until very tender with very little sugar. A small portion of the strained pulp may be given instead of apple, and the juice may be used also. Meat The child may have about a tablespoonful of scraped meat, or a soft boiled or coddleM egg once a day. Beef, broiled, boiled or roasted, the tender part of a lamb chop or the del icate meat of chicken or fish may be used. All meat should be scraped or minced very fine, as no child of this age can be trussed to chew it prop erly. 1 " Vegetables A small portion of some properly cooked green vege table like spinach or tender string beans may be given. Such vegetable j should be fresh. They should be cooked, then drained and mashed or strained through a colander. Roosevelt to Talk Here at Commercial Club in June Theodore Roosevelt has written to C.
