Product description


"This is a fascinating and highly relevant edited collection relating to children’s lives and food practices. Across the book we learn the ways that social contexts shape and inform what children eat across different countries and cultures. Whilst parenting is a key component of the analysis within several chapters this is usefully set within a broader context to acknowledge that family food work is influenced by settings beyond the home, with broader discourses about health, intervention and surveillance of families critically exposed."

- Wendy Wills, Professor of Food and Public Health, University of Hertfordshire

"In this timely collection the editors shine a much-needed light on ‘feeding children’ as a political practice at the centre of social reproduction. Uniquely bringing together insights from across disciplines, countries and settings, the book will be essential reading for students and researchers in the sociology and anthropology of food, childhood and women’s studies."

- Rebecca O'Connell, Reader in the Sociology of Food and Families, Thomas Coram Research Unit, UCL Institute of Education

"The scope of this collection of essays, including its global reach, makes it genuinely thought provoking. It is far more than a collection of stand-alone essays about feeding children. Knitted together with reference to wider sociological themes throughout, the collection will be of interest not only to sociologists of food, but also those interested in family, parenting cultures, gender, policy making and methodological questions raised by comparative research."

- Ellie Lee, Professor of Parenting and Family Research, University of Kent
