If you ask people from Copenhagen why they bike, less than 5% say it’s for health reasons. They do it because it’s the quickest way from A to B.

I get that formula is important and have nothing against it but the marketing practices of these brands are unethical & they shouldn’t be allowed to target nutrition professionals, especially under the guise of CPD 😡😡

in the past they’ve been even more heavily sponsored. I get the magazine and it has some interesting articles but every time I open it I 😡 at all the formula ads.

Why is this crisis not a scandal for the uk government? accessing to help local families access food and avoid simply should not be allowed to continue. and are to blame not feckless parents.

This is important. If we focus on things like the names on jeans we’re just window dressing. It’s like the whole conversation about stigma being a barrier to treatment. We need to focus more on the core issue... people being treated unfairly because of their size.

Would love it if some dads of 4-8-year olds would be willing to take part in our survey on child feeding practices and attitudes to weight & food. We’ve had a fantastic response from mums so far. Details below 👇

Really enjoyed this seminar and have scribbled down heaps of references to find and read. So much to be learnt from sociology on what matters to people in relation to food & eating and how their food choices are made.

If you’re interested in research and/or practice relating to any aspect of eating and feeding in infancy/childhood then the *NEW* ‘Eating and Feeding in Childhood Network’ (EFCN) may be for you!
