See that everyone has his or her full allowance of milk. Don't put the children's milk in the family teacups; at the same time, take your fair share.
Give a serving of potatoes and two servings of other vegetables; one green leafy one correctly cooked, and one yellow or red one (for instance, carrots, swedes, tomatoes — beetroot doesn't count, protectively speaking, though it „adds something in flavour and appearance). Also some raw salad.
Include 4 to 6 slices of bread and butter or margarine. This amount is for health protection. Bread and jam or paste doesn't do instead but is tasty and useful for additional filling-up purposes.
Have a serving of meat or fish (fresh or canned) or cheese or a cheese dish. Sometimes help out with pulses (dried peas, beans or lentils).
