I. Carbohydrates, what we commonly think of as starches and sweets, provide the body with energy to work, to play, and even to sleep soundly. They are found in a great variety of foods, including bread, crackers, cereals, macaroni, spaghetti, noodles, potatoes, rice, flour; starchy vegetables like peas, beans, etc.; dried fruits; sugars and sweets, such as honey, molasses, jams, jellies, and syrups. These foods produce heat and energy, but turn into fats and acids in the body if consumed in great quantities. We generally get ample carbohydrates without even trying, since most basic foods contain carbohydrates in satisfactory amounts. When we indulge in too many carbohydrates, however, the surplus is stored in the body as fat. That is why so many reducers cut them out entirely, which is a mistake. If you do this, proteins will be diverted from their main function in the body-upkeep and repair-and be forced to supply the needed energy. This is a well known fact. The sensible thing to do is to control your intake of carbohydrates instead of eliminating them altogether.

II. Growth in vocabulary depends greatly upon an attitude of curiosity about words—a sensitivity and interest in the various shades and degrees of meaning that words may have. As children acquire meaningful vocabularies, they learn new concepts and ideas. Children also enrich their understanding of words as they have broader experiences.
Reading a variety of materials—fiction, biography, science, travel, adventure, and history—provides opportunities for vocabulary development. Good listening also helps, as do opportunities for discussion and written expression. The more formal study of word origins and such parts as prefixes, suffixes, and roots stimulates increased interest in vocabulary.
