For better nutrition

  • Alice R. Bernheim


  1. 1.

    In our experience information concerning proper diet was insufficient appreciably to improve the level of nutrition among clinic patients. In addition, definite instructions concerning what food to eat and at what times to eat were necessary to achieve this result.

  2. 2.

    It is suggested that a definite dietary regimen be prescribed in the present campaign to better the national nutrition in addition to the general information now being disseminated by the Food and Nutrition Board of the National Research Council.

  3. 3.

    It is also suggested that considerable aid may be obtained by the use of medical out-patient departments of hospitals throughout the land as propagators of proper instructions concerning diet for patients and their families.
