Abstract: The 'Every Child' editorial team invited me to write this article in response to queries about why food should not be used as a play material with children. In 1997, I first raised this issue in 'Snails live in houses too: Environmental education for the early years' (Elliott & Emmett). It is somewhat concerning that almost two decades later this issue persists. So, again I am questioning: Why do educators use 'food for play'?
