Gustatory Laziness: changing food habits in ECE

Of changing food habits in their settings, the authors of a book about Reggio food education write of the need for “patient and gradual ‘gustatory education.’” (11) “Shaking up the ‘gustatory laziness’ of children, but also of adults,” they write, “is not an easy undertaking.”[3]

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!
