At the county project determination meetings which were held during the early fall months in twenty-eight counties in the state the women discussed the summary of 1200 food questionnaires as well as the survey summary secured through the cooperation of doctors, dentists and grocery men. The survey showed that 15 percent of the children in the families reporting were fussy about their food, 16 percent of the mothers had difficulty in getting the children to drink milk, 15 percent of the children did not eat raw tomatoes and 20 percent did not eat cooked tomatoes. Twenty three percent did not eat cooked vegetables at all. That the average homemaker falls short in not using enough milk, green vegetables and cereals was brought out more strikingly in the house to house survey carried out in four townships in Brookings county by the Rural Sociology Department, State College.
