CHILDREN MUST BE FED
IF THEY WORK OR THINK
(By Edith C. Johnson)
As you ro about the streets, how
many rosy-cheeked, chubby-armed lit-
tle children do you see?
How many children display
hiph decree of physical exuberant
and mental enthusiasm which comes
! of perfect health.
Not very many—you will notice.
In fact, the robust-lookimj child,
.round of contour, hird of musclo.
with warm, red blood showing throup^i
his cheeks is the exception, not the
rule, so exceptional, in fact, as to be
the subject of remarks. When one of
those too-rare children comes into
your presence, everybody turns and
says, "Why, what a healthy looking
child," is it not an unfortunate situa-
tion, that the robust child, not the pal-
lid one should be the exception instead
of the rule?
It is in order to correct this situa-
tion that the penny lunches have been
established in the public schools.
There are several reasons why chil-
dren are not adequately fed at home.
In the Lee school, for instance, at
least 75 percent of the mothers whose
■children come hungry to school, are
working mothers. They leave home
very early in the morning. They can-
not get home from their work at noon.
When they do return in the evening,
they are too tired to cook the right
kind of a meal, although they may
have earned enough money to buy it.
As a result, there were, before the
establishment of the penny lunches,
any number of small children who
were eating two or three cold meals
a day,and most of them taken out of
cans. And who can blame those
working mothers, It is a physical im-
possibility for 99 women out of 100
to do a day's work and keep the right
kind of a home. Hundreds of them
are trying to do it, and the result is
that they are neglecting either their
homes or their business. Where they
nut forth sufficient effort to carry on
both enterprises properly they, in al-
most every case do so at the sacrifice
of their own good health.
In almost every school district, the
working mother problem has to be
met. This, however, is not the only
reason. Some of the younger chil
dren are so eager to reach the school
nlay ground in the morning that they
cannot be induced to eat sufficient
breakfast. Of course, mothers should
see that their children eat a hearty
breakfast before their departure, but
alas, all mothers have not that much
stamina. Then we have with us al-
ways that staggering problem of the
mother who is a mother owing to the
accident of marriage. She does not
care enough for her children—they
have come to her, she has not wanted
them—to make the effort to feed them
(properly. She has to be off to the
neighbor's, the picture show, the card
party, or she is just too downright
lazy to prepare the food necessary
for the nourishment of her husband
and her children. We know her—this
careless, brainless, selfish mother and
•he is one of the curses of civilization.
She is all too eager to believe the
feminists who say it is trival. fodlish
and degrading for women to cook*and
wash dishes. And she grasps at the
first opportunity to shift upom the
school the responsibility and duty that
belongs to her. We must take>into
account still another class of children
who benefit by the lunches—those
who live so far from the school house
that they scarcely have time to go
home at noon.
Anaemia, tuberculosis, mental slug-
gishness, delinquency and a dozen
other errors are the direct result of
under-nourishment, crime and effici-
ency are so often results of hunger in
adults. The well-fed man is seldom
a drinker. It is, nine times out of ten,
the man who eats ill-selected and
poorly cooked food who has a hanker-
ing after the blind tiger or the corner
saloon. The tremendous consumption
of soft drinks and candies is another
result of improper eating. Whenever
I see a working girl call for a coca-
cola at 9 o'clock in the morning, I
know that that girl has not had a
If plenty of good food will win the
war. what will it not do for growing
children? As a man eats, so he works
and thinks. This principle applies not
only to the under-nourished hut to
gourmands and voluptuaries, who, be-
cause of over eating, become mental
and physical jellyfish. The percent
of jellyfish is so small in our popula-
tion that we need not worry about
them. It is with the great mass of
•mder- nourished children, the children
who are to do the work of the world
and formulate its ideals and standards
of the future that we must concern
