  • About
Milk is the natural food of the young. Its value in the dietary of adults is often overestimated. Solid food is essential. One obtains the greatest benefit from milk when taken alone at regular intervals between meals, or before retiring, and sipped rather than drunk. Hot milk is often given to produce sleep.

In feeding infants with milk, avoid all danger of infectious germs by Sterilization, or Pasteurization.

To prevent acidity of the stomach, add from one to two' teaspoonfuls of lime water, to each half pint of milk.
