Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

Nourishing Foods For Tiny Tots: Suggestions For Children's Meals


The front panel of this two-fold leaflet has part of the title in black in a bright yellow sun on a black background. A young girl is roller skating in the upper left corner, while a young boy is running at the lower right of the sun. Below the second part of the title is a drawing of a mother and two children. The back reads, "Tune In The Carnation 'Contented Hour'" and shows the radio schedule for Monday evening coast-to-coast programing. A coupon attached to the back panel is to send in for a free "100 Glorified Recipes." The back of the coupon has "Look for the word 'Irradiated' on the label" with a drawing and explanation that "Carnation Milk is irradiated with ultra-violet rays - enriched with the bone-building, tooth-protecting 'sunshine' vitamin D." Inside are recipes for Spanish Cream with Fudge Sauce, Fudge Sauce, Gingerbread Animals, Floating Island with Currant Jelly, Orange Blanc Mange, Beef Loaf, Pineapple Nog, Cereal and Vegetable Soup.
