I wanted to share this very amusing page I found in this 1973 children's cookbook. I picked it up off ebay its by Marguerite Pattern and called "Second Piccolo Cook Book" I don't know much about her but I'm sure someone can fill me in.
I love the frankness of it all - no beating around the bush, sparing the child's feelings or using words like big, large or heavy boned. She gets stuck right in calls the child fat and shows a picture of a chubby cheeked child stuffing its face with a lolly! Love it! I also love the little pictures of the plates - choose 3 and 4 instead of 1 and 2. So in summary, if I keep off the buns, cakes, lollies and ice-cream and walk and play more I will be slim. Easy!
