"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
