Description

Frederick FItzgerald Tisdall, Theodore G.H. Drake, and Alan Brown from the Hospital for Sick Children were responsible for the development and production of Pablum, a cereal-like food meant for the improvement of infant nutrition. Pablum was a combination of minerals and vitamins needed by growing children and a ground, pre-cooked mixture of starches.  The product dominated infant feeding for decades after its introduction in 1930 and its royalties contributed to supporting the research at the hospital for the next twenty-five years.
