|Abstract:||Using an ethnographic approach, we provide an analysis of food practices in residential care to explore the atypical nature of children's homes as a threefold space that combines characteristics of 'home', 'institution', and 'workplace'. Residential staff invested considerable effort into recreating a ' family-like' home but the practices and ideals they drew on could be interpreted and experienced in different ways. We demonstrate the difficulty of delineating between 'homely', 'institutional', or work oriented practices. While care workers tried to juggle conflicting demands in child-centred ways, the spaces they created could at times be experienced as constraining by the children and as inhibiting a sense of belonging.|
