Food education

“In the preschool age group, there are two major environments that are likely to affect eating behaviour—the ‘family food environment’ (FFE) and the ‘childcare centre food environment’ (CCFE). Research has established that the main factors in the FFE that influence children’s eating behaviour are food availability, parental control and restriction and parental modelling.” (105)

About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
