AbstractIt is troubling not to find much evidence in modern food law that distinguishes children more than early literature on food safety regulation did. We certainly fall behind science in this respect, especially if we consider how modern food law in the United States emerged. The body of food law is written as a general superset of law, but it fails to incubate and include the necessary subsets of law to ensure appropriate enforcement and implementation of child protection. Legal experts should keep in mind the importance of “gaz[ing] inward, to the world that she makes with the [child] as they work together” (White) while acknowledging children as rights holders. This is often an overlooked value in food law and a common mistake made as we conveniently presume that services only reach children through parents or legal guardian. Currently, we draft and implement food regulations and design food nutrients fact labels as they would be read by adults and caregivers; which should lead us to think about how we have left children in the shadows.
