AT HOME & SCHOOL, KIDS LEARN ABOUT THE 7 BASIC FOOD GROUPS. "SISTER & BROTHER LEARN ABOUT FOOD SOURCES, THE 7 BASIC FOODS & PROPER EATING HABITS."
Ken Smith sez: Another strange production from the people at Avis Films (see Posture Pals). This production features the same irritating woman narrator from Soapy The Germ Fighter and follows the Brown family through an average day of food consumption. The narrator tells us that sweets are "pleasure food," explains that butter and margarine "are especially good for your eyes,"(?) and shows us that the Brown children are charter members of the "Clean Plate Club." Nowhere near as memorable as Soapy or Posture Pals, but you'll always remember the headache-inducing wallpaper in the Brown's kitchen.

Subject: Up And Dressed at 7?
I'd be at that 7 AM breakfast table in my jammies (if at all, during summer vacation).
I wonder how many grand mal seizures were set off among viewers of this film? Between that wall paper and those neckties, I suppose quite a few.
