A question around food education…

“What messages are we conveying to infants and toddlers with respect to mealtimes?”[1]

[1]P43 Anita Homewood “Making mealtimes meaningful” The First Years 8(1) 2006; pp43-44

For example, Homewood notes: “Most importantly, take time.  Allow children time to ‘be’ and enjoy each other and their food.  These times are also for social conversations when the sharing of others’ lives occurs.” (p.44)


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!
