December days ... Is your child getting .the sunlight vitamin lie needs so much?

So many dark, dreary days in December. So much more time the children must spend indoors. And even the bright sunshiny days cannot give them all of the Vitamin D they need. For it is only in the outdoor direct rays of the sun (as in summer) that this precious sunlight Vitamin is produced in its full effectiveness.
But those youngsters of yours must have this Vitamin D in some form or other, if they are to grow up with straight, sturdy bodies. For Vitamin D is Nature's great force that prevents rickets-soft bones, bowed legs. "Without it, the milk minerals (lime and phosphorus) in the diet which go to build strong bones and sound teeth are not efficiently utilized by the body.

Vitamin D ... in this delicious nourishing food drink o Thousands and thousands of mothers are discovering in Cocomalt a happy aid to this problem. For extensive research has proved that Cocomalt makes a definite contribution to the antirachitic potency of the diet-and contains Vitamin D in sufficient quantities to aid in building strong bones and sound teeth when taken under normal everyday conditions.
And Cocomalt, you know, supplies not only the Vitamin Df but the milk minerals as well. It actually increases these minerals by over 50% and adds 70% more nourishment to milk. A completely balanced natural food drink that combines in correct proportions nourishing elements ideally suited to children, and grownups too.

What child doesn't like Cocomalt?
Make Cocomalt part of your children's regular diet-breakfast, supper, and for after school lunch. It's a delicious drink with a delightful chocolate flavor that appeals to youngsters instantly . . . and induces them to drink the daily glasses of milk that doctors say they must have.
