People eat and drink very differently throughout their life. Each stage has diets with specific ingredients, preparations, palates, meaning or settings. Moreover, physicians, authorities and general observers have particular views on what and how to eat according to age. All this changed frequently during the previous two centuries. Infant feeding has for a long time attracted historical attention, but interest in diets of youngsters, adults of various ages, and elderly people seem to have dissolved in more general food historiography. This volume puts age on the agenda of food history by focusing on the very diverse diets throughout the lifecycle.
