Food for Freddy -- Film Description:
"The kinds of food essential to the good health of school-age children are described in this film about Freddy Mason and his classmates. Freddy is a typically robust youngster, but some of his friends do not present the same picture of health and good spirits. To show the relationship between food and health, Freddy's teacher introduces a classroom demonstration in which white rats are fed the same foods as the children bring for their lunches. The film presents the basic requirements of a balanced diet as outlined in Canada's Food Rules. At home, Freddy discovers that his nutrition-wise mother has already put her family on the safe side of good eating."
