    The premise of them was to 1) treat anemia and 2) provide a source of B - vitamins, which were a common deficiency during the 30's before food fortification started.

    B vitamins are famous for making people (especially children) hungry - which is how they induce weight gain. A regular B-complex has the same effect on many people, that is actually a common complaint of people taking them.
