I came across this little stack of booklets awhile back from the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company (MetLife). I believe they're from the 1930's. I assume that these were provided free of charge, and they certainly contain a wealth of information. Included in the first booklet, below...
...was their simple prescription for life, including all of these:
and these, as well:
And a cookbook in case you needed some help with that:
I thought these lunch suggestions inside were interesting!
Good Teeth At All Ages told you just about everything you needed to know about your teeth and keeping them healthy:
The Family Food Supply - what your family needs:
Oh - and what they should eat!
Overweight And Underweight -this one includes sample menus, calorie counts, a weight chart - you get the idea:
Standing Up To Life - for good posture and foot health - what you should do:
....and what you shouldn't do:
Stand up to life!
I thought these old booklets were interesting - and you know, back then we didn't have the wealth of information at our fingertips that we do these days. Maybe an encyclopedia if you were able to afford it - otherwise , a trip to the library would be in order if you needed some information. Seems nice to me that the company provided these to their customers, or perhaps potential customers.
