To Mothers. —o— We are sure you would all like to have a nice hot dinner ready for the children when they come hume from school, instead of giving them so much Bread and Butter and Bread and Jam, and tea. You may have heard that children arc not growing up as broad and strong as they used to do. borne people think that now they do so many lessons their brains take a great deal of the nourishment which used to go to their bcdies, and they are wondering very much how we can get the children better fed. We know you cannot afford to spend a single penny more than you do in providing for your little ones, and that you cannot get them Milk and Meat and Suet Puddings, which we know grow- ing children ought to have. But if we tell you of something which will make them a nourish- ing and tasty dinner two or three times a week, without costing you a penny more than it does for bread, and without taking any more fireing than it does to boil a kettle, will you try it 1 Take two loaves less a week, and spend the money in buying some lentils; they are lid. per lb. A pound of lentils, cooked aa we will show you, will make a good dinnor for a family, and would cost lid., while a loaf of bread costs at least 2Jd. Soak the lentils for 20 minutes, rinse them well, and put them in a saucepan with a little salt, and, if you can get it, some chopped onion. Boil these in just enough water to cover them, until they are tender and are like minced meat, stir as they thicken. The children wirl enjoy this as it is, but it is nicer still with potatoes, or a little boiled rice put round it sometimes would make a change. Another day try a lentil pudding. This is like pease pudding, but it is more quickly cooked. Soak and rinse the lentils, tie them up in a cloth with a little salt, and boil well. Nothing makes nicer soup than lentils. Haif- a-pound of lentils and a few vegetable will make soup for four or five children. Another time you might try a potato pie. Prepare the lentils according to the first recipe, cover them with some mashed potato, and make brown. This is especially nice with plenty of onion, and a few scraps of bacon or meat. For Sunday's dinner get a few "pieces" from the butcher's, cook some lentils (first recipe), add them to the meat, and bake under a crust. If you can manage it, get a pennyworth of curry-powder one day; it will keep a long time if it is well covered. By adding a teaspoonful to half a pound of cooked lentils, a little more onion than usual and a very little sugar, you will have a nice supper dish (with a little rice round it) for yourself and your husband. The children might like a little curry occasionally. Try haricot beans sometimes for a change. They are very cheap, but want more soaking and cooking than lentils; they moke nitr/ soup. Peas, too, are very nourishing. If you could give the children ,olled oats every day, or every other day, for breakfast instead of bread, it would be much better for them; they do not take so long to cook as oat- meal does, and are very cheap. It was all this kind of food whioh made Daniel and his companions "fairer and fatter in flesh than all the children which did eat the portion of the King's meat" (Dan. 1. 16). In India and other parts lentils are regarded as the best food on which to take a long journey, and they are much used abroad. They con- tain more flesh-forming and fat-forming pro- perties than beef and mutton. Add to ail this that there is no cheaper food to be obtained, and we think you will be glad to have had them brought to your notice, &nd will never be without some in the house. Tell your neigh bours about them. A few more hints — Do not giv the children cheap jam and cheap piokles with their bread; good margarine and dripping (which you can buy at the butcher's) are the right things to get if you cannot afford better. Skim milk is much better than no milk at all, as even without the cream it has things in it which children require, but whatever milk you use don't forget to boil it. Consumption, scarlet fever and diphtheria are less likely to attack families where the inilk is boiled. Re- member that boiled rice alone is not a 811.1&, ciently nourishing dinner for children in a cold climate, and that bread and butter and tea is no dinner at all for YOU. Do not take tea more than twice a day, and never after it has stood more than five minutes or so. M.B
