This book explores the significance of food practices for childhood identities, from early babyhood to middle childhood and teenage years. It examines how children and families negotiate food and eating practices; what influence the media has on these; the role institutions play; and how far class and ethnicity shape the food that children eat.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'...provides novel understandings of children's everyday food practices and experiences, any why children eat what they do. Such perspectives are notably missing from the public health debates about childhood obesity and could fill a significant gap...a valuable edition to Childhood Studies and Food Studies' - Canadian Journal of Sociology

'...[a] timely contribution...The editors succeed in their attempt to broaden our understanding by pointing to the complexity surrounding children as consumers and social actors across the ages and in different social and cultural locations when engaged in such an everyday practice as eating.' - Dr. Ulla Gustafsson, Network, BSA
