THE DAILY COLLEGIAN
`Diets,' Says Shaw
If you want your child to be
healthy, physically and mentally,
check the contents of his lunch
box or the .food which he eats at
school to make sure that it con
tains sufficient proteins, minerals,
• This is the advice that comes
as the result of a four-year study
that has been conducted by home
economics research specialists un
der the sponsorship of the State
Department' of Health.
"Children's diets may now be
planned on a scientific basis, just
as one draws blueprints for the
building of a house," said Dr. John
J. Shaw, State Secretary of
Health, in discussing the advances
which have been made in ascer
taining proper nutrition for school
"Children need no longer be fed
by ear," said Dr. Pauline Beery
Mack, director of home econom
ics research, as she told of the
conclusions which have resulted
from an examination of 2000 chil
dren since 1936. For the last four
years, workers under her supervi
sion haVe been relating types of
nutrition to such physical indices
as body tuild, skeletal status, vit
amin status, red. coloring matter in
the blood, and other significant
Out of their studies correlating
the average intake of energy, pro
tein, and the various minerals and
vitamins for children of families
of different incomes has come a
new emphasis •on the proper con
tent of school lunches' for children
of families of different income
levels. • •
"A school lunch should proper
ly contain the needed nutrients
least likely to be received at
home," Dr. Mack explained.
"The• studies have shown that
the types of food least likely to be
deficient in the school child's diet
are the starches and sugars.
"On the other hand, proteins,
which are found chiefly in milk,
meat, and eggs, as well as various
minerals and vitamins are most
likely to be lacking in the child's
diet, and this deficiency becomes
greater the lower the family- in
"Sandwiches and starchy foods,
often constituting the chief com
ponents of a school lunch, there
fore make the poorest contribution
to the morning and evening meal.
"The best supplement consists of
milk, together with some meat or
eggs and a considerable quantity
of fruits and vegetables in the ma
jority of cases."
