Children making decisions about food and eating practices

Farrell, Ann & Danby, Susan J. (2007) Children making decisions about food and eating practices. Every Child, 13(4), pp. 20-21.


Much of Australia's child health policy is being driven by medical perspectives on childhood obesity and physical (in)activity, but little attention has been given to children's perspectives on their food and eating practices. This article briefly describes a study that sought to redress this imbalance by generating, with children, their accounts of everyday decision-making in relation to food and eating. It is part of an emerging research agenda examining the active engagement and participation of children in their everyday lives.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
