I have a collection of antique Christmas children’s books. One such book from 1905, published by McLoughlin Bros New York and illustrated by G.A. Davis is appropriately titled The Christmas Book. It contains “The Night Before Christmas” but also a little known cautionary tale, “The Day After Christmas”. I’m sharing the colorful pages with you here and hope you will enjoy reading the diet advice which is delivered in a lighthearted way:
I have a groovy nutrition booklet for kids from 1971 called Mystery at the Food Power Tower published by the “National Live Stock and Meat Board.” Other than a creepy clown that prohibits adults from entering the tower with their children (and parents who entrust them to the clown), it offers some sensible, straight-forward advice to kids about eating healthy.
