This book takes his campaign for better school meals, presented so powerfully in the TV series Jamies School Dinners, as a starting point for examining often idealised ideas about parenting, young peoples nutrition, health and well-being, and public health crises such as obesity. The authors show how these debates are always about the moral project of the self, the types of people we are and should aspire to be, and the roles that food can play in that ongoing project.

The relationship between these food issues and the moral project of the self should be a central concern because it tells us much about how we imagine ourselves, who we are, and what we should become. These hopes and aspirations are most often invested and embodied in the young people that we parent, school and nourish.
