Amid the new UK government’s sweeping cuts and reforms to public health, welfare and education, this edition of Food Ethics focuses on children and food. We grapple with young people’s status as consumers and producers, their relationships with the state and their families, and the environmental responsibilities they are inheriting.
Our expert contributors discuss school meals, food marketing to children and environmental education. We hear from pioneering projects working with children to create a fairer, healthier and greener food system at a community level, through national campaigns and internationally. The articles offer critical analysis and inspiration in equal measure.
