The image is a page of advertising for Ovaltine from a magazine; the top half is a photograph, the bottom half is text. A boy about 8 years old wearing a striped shirt rests his head in his right hand; he looks directly at the viewer with a worried and tired gaze. Below this large image are the words, "How can a mother help a child who is falling behind?" The fine print describes the malted beverage product and its nutritional qualities.
This image accompanies Marley Beach's H-Nutrition Figures essay, "Ovaltine: Marketing and Nutrition."
