Let Him K now the Value of Milk aa
Milk Is not n beverage, but an easily
digested perfect food. It requires no
cooking, contains no waste, Is pala
table, easily digested and Is entitled to
be classed among the economical hu
man foods and ought to be more gen
One dollar spent for milk at 0 cents
per quart furnishes 1.1 pounds of
protein, 1.3 pounds of fat, 1.7 pounds
o f carbohydrates and 10,300 calories of
energy, while the same sum spent for
beef sirloin at 25 cents per pound
furnishes .0 pound protein, .0 pound
fat, no carbohydrates and 4,100 calo
ries of energy, or the same amount
spent for eggs at 30 cents per dozen
furnishes .5 pound protein, .4 pound
fat, no carbohydrates and 2,000 calo
ries of energy, or the dollar spent for
oysters at 35 cents per quart gives us
.3 pound o f protein, .1 pound fat, .2
pound o f carbohydrates and 1,250
calories of energy.
Thus we can show that many of the
standard foods are really luxuries in
price when compared with milk on the
scale o f nourishment furnished for a
definite sum. Now think you not if
the consumer were made cognizant of
these and other favorable facts, if they
were thrust before his notice as are
the claimed virtues of the so called
cereal foods, nostrums or worse, would
not consumption increase, naturally
making a tetter price?
