This is an advertisement for Dr. Ridges food substitute for infants and invalids. During the Victorian period there was a development in the understanding of the importance of vitamins and minerals to help create a healthy diet. Justus von Liebig first advertised his food for infants in 1867 and soon many other companies were producing food substitutes. The colourful illustration on this leaflet depicts an elderly lady sitting near the range in a rocking chair in the kitchen of her home. A small child stands next to her.
