Children and youth food practices are becoming increasingly perceived as problematic, reflecting concerns on childhood overweight and obesity rates in several countries. Apart from issues with excess food, food deficit problems (malnutrition, food security) are becoming ever more present in both developed and developing countries, since the rise in fuel, energy and food prices (in the aftermath of the 2007-2008 crises and the austerity measures forcefully applied in some countries).

Picture: 

Citizenship is a phenomenon that encompasses the relationships between the state and individuals, rights and responsibilities and identity and nationhood. Yet the relationship between citizenship and childhood has gone relatively unexplored. This book examines this relationship by situating it within the historical development of modern forms of citizenship that have formed contemporary Western notions of childhood and citizenship.
