Approche sociologique des néophobies alimentaires chez l’enfant

Abstract : The authors investigate autistic children’s nutritional singularities, the difficulties encountered by their nurturing entourage and the adjustments they have to make during meals. They look closely at changes in the range of food in their diet and more especially the neophobic phase. This work addresses both the simultaneity and complementarity of socialisation and individuation processes as two interrelated elements of children’s changing dietary practices. The combined psychological and sociological approach allows the underlying mechanisms of such norms to be explored. A distinction can then be made between the phylogenetic perspective, with its universalising dimension, and the child’s neophobia within an ontogenic framework.
