From page 84 of 'When Two or Three'
By a Doctor
The talks in this series through the spring and summer will cover the health and welfare of the adolescent child, i.e., the child from fourteen to eighteen. Health at this age can very easily go downhill, for not only are the boy and girl changing into the young man and woman, but they are entering for the first time shop or factory, domestic service or indoor or outdoor employment of some kind ; or if they are staying on at school, there is the strain of important examinations.
It is not only work that may get them down, but getting to and from work. Then such food as they may be able to afford or obtain in their lunch hour may be far from ideal. And problems like the right to choose their own friends, the amount of their earnings it is reasonable to let them keep, the general maintenance of discipline, the essential need for relaxation and healthy recreation-all these are the concern of parents and are vital to the welfare of the child.
This morning the introductory talk will be given by a man who is not only a doctor but a parent, and he will discuss the part the home can play when the child goes out to work.

The right food is one of the paths to health. It is not, therefore, surprising that today, when medicine is concerned to keep people healthy and not only to ireat them when ill, research workers in many countries are investigating problems of diet. There are many problems still unsolved, but certain principles are now accepted, which will be explained in the eight talks of the series. In particular, the special needs of the child between one and five years, the adolescent, both at school and in industry, the mother, the man at work, and the older person will be discussed.
The speakers will be doctors, and so in accordance with the rules of their profession, will remain anonymous.
This evening in the opening talk the speaker will discuss the problem of nutrition, the essentials of a balanced diet, and the difficulty of hard-and-fast rules owing to variation in the individual's reaction to food.
