Abstract

This article focuses on a case study of food and eating practices in a co‐educational, multi‐ethnic primary school. It illustrates discrepancies between the formal curriculum for food and the actual food consumed in school. Themes to be explored further are children’s understandings about meals and snacks and the cultural significance attached to each.
