About this book

This book takes Jamie Oliver's campaign for better school meals as a starting point for thinking about morally charged concerns relating to young people's nutrition, health and well-being, parenting, and public health 'crises' such as obesity. The authors show how these debates are always about the moral project of the self.

Reviews

“In their careful attention to technologies of governance, Pike and Kelly offer crucial insights into the complexities of young people’s food lives. In keeping with their commitment to a mode of theorizing that opens rather than forecloses debate, this book is sure to inspire continued conversation about the diverse ways in which young people’s food practices are imagined, evaluated, regulated and experienced.” (Kate Cairns, Food, Culture & Society, Vol. 18 (4), December, 2015)

“They aim to tackle and analyse the issues of morality, health, obesity, neo-liberalism, food, children, parenthood and the government’s attempts to normalize people’s food practices, all in one. This book covers important and currently often debated topics. … It can be interesting not only for academics, including geographers, sociologists and anthropologists, but also for bloggers and journalists, or anyone interested in the Jamie Oliver phenomenon and the issues pertaining to children and food.” (Zofia Boni, Children’s Geographies, Vol. 13, 2015)
