Approaching family through the lens of food, this book provides a new perspective on the diversity of contemporary family life, challenging received ideas about the decline of the family meal, the individualization of food choice and the relationship between professional advice on healthy eating and the everyday practices of doing family.
PETER JACKSON is Professor of Human Geography at the University of Sheffield, UK and Director of the Changing Families, Changing Food research program, funded by The Leverhulme Trust.
