‘Food: changing approaches to food in the construction of childhood in western culture’ discusses how food operates in books for children as an integral part of the construction of childhood, being used by authors in different ways in differing time periods from the nineteenth century to contemporary times to re-imagine and comment upon childhood. The areas considered are under the following headings: Food, Morality and the Nation, Greedy Appetites, In A Manner Of Eating, Class and Food, Changing Approaches To Obesity and finally Recipes For Change. The concluding section on Recipes For Change discusses the ways that attention to the question of food and childhood has moved into a more applied approach by raising the awareness of children to food in an attempt to improve their dietary health.
