Excerpt from Lessons in the Proper Feeding of the Family

This book is for housekeepers with varying incomes from the very poorest to those having as much as $25 a week. It is intended to be used under the instruction of the visiting teacher of foods and cooking, who adapts the instruction to the needs of each home. In all cases the aim is to help the housekeeper to use Iter income to best advantage.

The bills of fare have not been planned for persons who have been improperly fed for a long time. In the case of such persons it is important not to cut down on such foods as butter and milk, as their proper use helps to build up our bodies and keep them in condition to throw off disease.

When using this book, remember:

First: That only the most important points in each subject are spoken of. For example, when you know how to cook one kind of cereal properly, you can use this knowledge to help you in cooking any other kinds. When you learn how to economize heat in cooking one kind of meat, you will know how to apply this knowledge to a variety of meats.

Second: When you use the first set of bills of fare, remember they show you only the very smallest amount you can give the family to keep them well. For a variety which is best, you will have to spend about seven cents more every day for each person. It is not expected that any one will follow the bills of fare exactly as they are printed; they are planned merely as examples of the kinds of food that are most valuable.

Third: The recipes are planned for a family of six-two adults and four children.

Fourth: All measurements in this book are level unless it is otherwise noted. Do not use heaped or rounded measures, as this will give bad results.
