When a Federal Bureau reminds
you that children should not
drink coffee or tea why not think
of your own health?
The Federal Bureau of Education includes
in its rules to promote health among the Nation's
school children, the warning that children should
not drink coffee or tea.
1 The .reason is well known. Coffee and tea
'contain drugs which stimulate and often over-
excite the nerves, and so upset health.
t; Tho harm is by no means confined to chil
idren, as any doctor can tell you.
' If health is valuable to childhood, it is valu
able always. If harm to health should be avoided'
until bodies grow up, is it worth taking a chance
with health when bodies have grown up?
You can have that delicious and satisfying
cereal beverage Postum, with any meal, and be
Bafe you, and the children, too. There's charm
without harm in Postum.
Postum cornea in two forms: Instant Postum (in tins)
made instantly in tho cup by the addition of boiling water.
Postum Cereal (in packpgea of larger bulk, for those who
prefer to make the drink while the meal is being prepared)
made by boiling for 20 minutes. Sold by all grocers.
