February 2006 | 208 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Developed with the support of the Kent Healthy Schools Programme to encourage primary schools to promote healthy eating, this resource takes a whole-school, holistic approach towards children's eating and relates to the PSHE Curriculum and the Healthy Schools Programme. There is a good blend of easily accessible information on healthy eating supported by individual case studies.

The three sections cover:

" a summary of the range of children's eating issues

" examples of lesson plans related to the physical, emotional and social aspects of children's eating.
