HEALTHFUL DIET FOR
BABY TWO YEARS OLD
Dr. Copeland Gives a Variety of Suggestions, Per-

Former Commissioner of Health. New York City.
United States Senator from New York.
'Y FRIEND, Mr. B., is mad
about Baby B. Mr. B. is'always talking about his baby. The
conceit of these young fathers!
As a matter of fact the baby
is Mrs. B.'s baby, aged 27 months. By the time
this article is printed the fine youngster will be
68 months old.
What can be said about a baby of this age?
Bow much should it weigh and what helpful ad
Vice can be given its parents?
Really, I am anxious to be of some service
; to this particular baby and, . of course, to all
'babies. If all the 28-months-old babies could

, The authorities are pretty well agreed about
- iwhat sort of feeding should be, given a child
Sfrom two to three years of age. Immediately
ion awaking it will call for food. What response should the parent
' snake to this demand?
Since orange juice contains certain vitamins and minerals essential
to the welfare of the child, it isn't a bad idea to give orange juice the

Mama's killed the goose that laid

when she saw the sardonic grin on
