LETTER:New mums - what you need is broth

From Mrs Christine Smith

Sir: Perhaps pregnant women living on benefit need educating ("Mothers' poor eating puts babies at risk", 14 November).

How about making soup: a marrow bone (a few pence from the butcher), root vegetables, perhaps a tin of tomatoes and some lentils, and bread for the children to dunk. Very nutritious, warming and inexpensive. A teaspoon of yeast extract stirred in would add nutrition and flavour.

Yours faithfully,
