Phone Charles Town 24-F-011 This suggests that you do 3 things: (1) Start your child eating 8 slices of Wonder Bread today. (2) Measure your child's height and weigh him today. (3) See how height and weight increase in 3 months; 6 months; each year. # Wonder Bread contains 12 essential food elements that help your child grow normally. The amounts of these 12 food elements in Wonder Bread are com- pared with similar amounts con- tained in other foods. This does not suggest that Wonder Bread take the place of these other foods. Or that your child is deficient in any of these elements, particularly cobalt, copper, zinc and manganese. However, the fact is Wonder Bread does contain each of the 12 food elements approximately in the amounts shown. Thus, when you give Wonder Bread to your child, you know you are helping your child grow bigger and stronger 12 ways. Fresh And Tender You should have no trouble getting your child to eat plenty of big, new Wonder Bread. Because it is fresh with a tender texture and crust; a mouth-watering aroma. And--makes perfect toast. Get big, new Wonder Bread fresh from your grocer today. And start helping your child grow bigger and stronger 12 ways. 1959, CONTINENTAL BAKING COMPANY, Inc. ::::::::::::::::::::: iii J :i ~iii i! ili )i ,! !
