The successful homemaker feeds her family simple, well balanced meals every day. The food she prepares, the way she serves it and the atmosphere she allows to grow up in her home as the interest centers in the meals, will determine very largely the family's happiness. Sufficient food must be served in well balanced meals to supply the body's hidden needs. The amount of food served is determined very largely by the activity of the family members. If the father and boys work outdoors at hard labor all day they will have to have three heavy meals. If there are young children they must have foods that will make them grow and keep them in health. Finally, the family must be trained to eat the food that is served even though it is not always the kind of food that they like.
