Description

"This highly readable, thoroughly researched book explores food and eating in an historical, cultural and psychological context and, as public concern about children's nutrition rises, its publication is timely. Food and Health in Early Childhood is a comprehensive, clearly written text enriched with case studies and pertinent reflective activities to consolidate learning." - Angela Underdown, Associate Professor, Early Childhood Studies, University of Warwick The media interest surrounding children, food and nutrition continues to influence policy and practice in early years settings. Jamie Oliver's campaign for better school dinners, worries about childhood obesity, the ban on advertising junk food to children and the increase in food allergies amongst young children are all major issues of concern to early years students and practitioners.This book gives you a comprehensive overview of food and eating in the early years, covering the following: - policy development - health inequalities - food, culture and identity - food and emotion - healthy eating guidelines - promoting healthy eating in the early years - multi-disciplinary working in relation to young children's nutrition. Each chapter includes case studies, links to useful websites, activities and suggestions for further reading. This book is essential reading for Early Years Foundation Degree & Early Childhood Studies students, all staff in pre-school settings, playgroup leaders, managers of children's' centres and those studying for the NPQICL (National Professional Qualification in Integrated Centre Leadership).

Author Biography

Deborah Albon worked as a nursery nurse, teacher and manager in a range of early childhood settings for nearly 20 years before working in Higher Education. Her research interests are primarily around food and drink provisioning in early childhood settings. In particular her work explores the way 'food events' offer a lens through which to examine adult-child (and family) relationships in early childhood settings. Deborah is widely published in this area and has co-written the textbook Research Methods in Early Childhood with Penny Mukherji (soon to be in 3rd edition) as well as co-writing the book Negotiating Adult-Child Relationships in Early Childhood Research with Rachel Rosen. This latter book examines the `messiness' of navigating research relationships in the context of early childhood settings. Deborah worked at London Metropolitan University for 13 years and now works as a Senior Lecturer in Early Childhood Studies at University of Roehampton. She has considerable experience teaching research methods to both undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as supporting them with their dissertations. Deborah Albon will be discussing key ideas from Research Methods in Early Childhood in the SAGE Early Years Masterclass, a free professional development experience hosted by Kathy Brodie.

Penny continues to be actively involved in the university with supporting students whilst they are completing their dissertations.
