Food for Thought

Food based training, assessment and intervention tools for carers of looked after young people

Food for Thought explores the ways in which food is used symbolically
by children, foster carers and residential staff.  It looks at how food
comes to stand for thoughts, beliefs and feelings and how these can be
better understood and harnessed in the care of children.

  • Looking for new ways to understand or work with children and young people?
  • Has the way in which the child you care for uses food ever caused you concern?
  • Would you like to develop creative ways to support children and young people?
  • Looking for ways to help children demonstrate their care for you and for others?

On this website you will find a wealth of resources to help.
