The nutrition of the infant is considered to be a central factor where the development of infant health and development as well as the inner-familiar organisation and organisation of parental role are concerned. At the same time, infant feeding practices have registerd significant spacial and social variations and have been subject to profound changes paticularly during the twentieth century. This small volume presents selected aspects of the theme in a European context discussed at two conferences held in Innsbruck 2017 (First Conference of the European Network of the History and Culture of Infant Feeding) and Tours 2018 (Fourth International Conference on Food History and Cultures).
