Abstract
This handbook shares the experiences of staff and children on food in residential care. By thinking about food they reflect on some of the complexities of residential care and what its like to live and work there. We hope that by sharing these views with you and providing you with questions to reflect on, you too will think about how food is used by you, your colleagues and the children you care for. The handbook brings together a range of issues connected to food routines in residential children's homes and aims to ‘unpick' some of the assumptions that surround them. It hopes to raise awareness of the many messages connected to food and the different ways in which food can be used.
