There are many important food habits which go to make up the problems in Robertson County, Texas, that were not mentioned in this study. It is hoped that the information that the writer has given will be the beginning of a large amount of research work. This study along with other studies might be used for similar studies.

The food of any group of people is the most important thing in its life. When one reads as far back as the dawn of civilization to study the temperament of the various races and examine their habits of eating, it becomes obvious that man's diet has wielded as powerful an influence upon his morals as upon his tendency toward true civilization. Man's body is like a car and in some respect the likeness is good. In the case of a car, each part must perform specific functions to keep the car at its best, so it is with the human body. The engine of a car must burn fuel and from the process of burning fuel we find it derives energy through a by-product, heat is developed. The human body needs fuel to supply energy for muscular activities, growth, and development.

The purpose of this study is to analyze the regular family food habits exhiting in twenty-five Robertson County families and give suggestions for realizing the standards. This study is to also serve as a reference for food classes.
