Dietary Advice

Friday 14th April 1916:  The Luton News has passed on to its readers the following advice from Dr. Harry Campbell of the West End Hospital, London:

“A good hunch of crusty bread, thoroughly chewed, with butter and cheese or fat bacon, followed by a little raw fruit, such as an apple, constitutes an ideal meal. Not only does it provide the needful nutritive ingredients, but it gives the teeth and salivary glands ample work, and leaves the mouth in a hygienic state.”
