There can be no doubt that our science of nutrition is now sufficiently advanced to warrant confident advice upon the food that should be included in human diet; so what is really necessary at the present day is to tell the public of this food, and to see that it is made available to the approximately one‐third of the population who are insufficiently fed. So let there be an end to lectures and articles for the general public giving information upon the very abstruse science of nutrition, in terms from which very few of those who stand in need of advice can profit. Let us waste no more time in offering such stony fare, by keeping in mind the fact that the section of the community that mostly needs our advice upon feeding is a section which is the most difficult to inform upon the scientific justification of that advice. It is the kind of food which satisfies the requirements of nutrition that has to be impressed.
