Families, food and environment

We conduct multidisciplinary research on children and families' food and environmental practices.

Our current and past work include research on infant feeding, food in early years' settings, school meals, food in working families, families and food poverty, and family lives and the environment.


We incorporate an innovative range of quantitative and qualitative methods and data reuse. Our work takes an international as well as national focus, and our funders include the Department of Health, Food Standards Agency (FSA), Economic and Social Research Council, and European Research Council.
