Everyone has memories of the food they ate they had when they were growing up. This book gives young children access to people's memories alongside photographs to help them build up a picture of the past. From family meals to wartime rationing young children can explore what has changed and what remains the same.
The book is part of the 'Tell me what you remember' series, which explores changes in living memory through photographs and memories. It is a perfect teaching tool for KS1 or for children up to age 7.
