TheRetroRescuers, Vintage Hankscraft Baby Food Warmer Dish ~Periwinkle Blue: https://www.etsy.com/sg-en/listing/594103122/vintage-hankscraft-baby-food-warmer-dish
Research Facts
This dish was used to feed toddlers. Warm water would be poured into the hollow portion and plugged with a matching lid, which in this case has been replaced by a cork. The water inside the dish would keep the food warm. The ridged base and the heavy weight of the bowl kept toddlers from throwing the bowl on the ground, etc.
Similar items were made by a company called Hankscraft.

Research Facts
A later edition of this book, from 1937-1942, in print while Harold J. Kirby was Ontario's Minister of Health, has an illustration of the famous Dionne quintuplets on the front cover.
Forbes Godfrey was Ontario's first Minister of Health, and he was a doctor before entering the realm of politics. Dr. Godfrey wanted the government to do more to combat tuberculosis, as the disease was devastating Ontario's citizens. As a result of his efforts, a system of government supported tuberculosis hospitals was created. Dr. Godfrey was also a strong believer in vaccination. He was responsible for organizing the ministry of health from its beginnings, and he helped protect miners from silicosis; started industrial health programs; created public health clinics in remote areas, and began free immunization programs for Ontario school children.
