Josh Sutton argues that not only is it true that ‘we are what we eat’ but also what we eat and how we react to it, can affect both the types of food available to us, and also the way in which it is produced. The food we are offered in childhood determines how we learn to eat, and our future food choices, and is an important part of our make-up. We assume that wealth and privilege determine our sense of being satiated and well-fed, but history shows us that often the children of the upper classes could be as under fed as those living in abject poverty. This book will follow the developmental stages of growth in childhood, showing how different cultures adapt to their surroundings and the needs of their children, and then providing recipes which will assist the parent of today in the difficult task of choosing the right way to feed a growing child.
