Excerpt from the article:
Childhood and food, taken together, are topical subjects. They lead us down many paths: nutrition, health, psychology, sociology, anthropology, psychoanalysis, the economy... In editing this issue, I came across many significant issues. In choosing what to include, I put myself in the place of a child attending a nursery or school: what does meal time mean during the day? how important is it? how is it offered? what implication does it have for the child's overall development? I have also prioritised certain issues that I want to share with you.
