An Essay on the Government of Children, Under Three General Heads, viz. Health, Manners, and Education
James Nelson (1710-1794) was one of the first health experts to suggest regular meals for children, along with suggestions as to what they should be fed, including "Garden Stuff" and "Small Beer" (pages 125-6). He also advocates breast milk over cow's milk whenever possible (page 66). Highly readable and entertaining to this day.
