Excerpt from The Noon Hour and the Noon Lunch

Most of us remember our school days long agone; the long walk through chill wind, snow, slush, mud and sometimes over frozen roads. When school was reached our lunch was in cold storage. Sometimes it was placed in unheated hallways where it remained frozen until thawed by eating. Many of us survived, and some think that because of this our children will survive such things also.

The writer recalls his early experience as a boy pioneer in a country of magnificent distances and discouraging hardships, where his parents were unable to supply the dainties of any kind for his noon repast. Coarse bread and butter, fried mush, some cold boiled meat, a piece of homemade cheese, occasionally some fruit, seemed very coarse and ungenteel when compared with the pie, cake, doughnuts, preserves and confections of the elite society of the neighborhood. He always stole away to some seclusion until the ravenous appetite of the growing boy was allayed. It never occurred to him that these coarse foods of which he was ashamed were storing up energy and strength for later life and he was in reality better favored than the rich in this respect.

During the war just past we have learned that there are five food groups from which something should be chosen each day. They are as follows:

1. Vegetables or fruit.
2. Milk, cheese or eggs, meat or beans.
3. Cereal; corn, rice, oats, rye or wheat.
4. Syrup or sugar.
5. Fat; such as drippings, oil and butter.

When to a lunch made up of these simple coarse elements, which are within the reach of every family, is added a hot soup or a steaming hot baked potato there seems to be nothing lacking.
