The development of the physical health of a child has come to be regarded as an important part of education. A better understanding of the relation of diet to disease has resulted in the study of food habits.

It has been found through studies medical men and dietitians have made that health depends to a very large extent on correct eating habits, and that children must have food in proper quantities and of right kind.

It was with these important facts in mind that this survey was made. The writer hopes to present in simple language such information needed to show the mothers of school children that the science of nutrition can and should be made to function in daily life. The writer further purposes to clear and make definite suggestions which will enable the mothers to apply these nutritional principles to their individual problems.
