This historic photograph showed a group of children, who’d gathered in an observance of Child Health Day, displaying signs with attention being paid to nutrition. Left to right, the signs read, “Better Food”, “Here It Is”, “Better Children”, “Here We Are.” Those children not holding signs, were holding plates of food. Foods displayed, represented examples of those that are high in nutritional value. The messages emphasized the importance of nutritious food to a child’s healthy development, as well as the marketing efforts put forth by public health workers, to promote practices that would benefit America’s children. This event took place in the state of Montana. The original image was scanned from a glass lantern slide donated by the Minnesota Department of Health, and is one of a historical collection of documents and photographs devoted to observances of Child Health Day in the United States.
