Mothers should early realize how essential good health is for the success of their children in life. A poorly nourished baby generally means an undersized child wants stamina and vigor. If unable to nurse your baby, you must give the substitute that most closely resembles human milk.

No farinaceous or starchy food or unmodified cow's milk is permissible to a child under 6 or 7 months. The "Allenburys" Milk Foods are prepared to remove the difference between cow's milk and human milk, which are as easy to digest as the child's natural food.

The "Allenburys" Foods are suitable for the delicate and robust. Form the best means of rearing a child by hand when used as directed. The No. 1 Milk Food may be given alternately with the mother's milk without fear of upsetting the child or causing a digestive disturbance. The dreaded process of weaning is thus made easy and comfortable for the mother and child.
