I couldn’t agree with Mr. Oliver more, & I love that his passion for food & health is so apparent. I’d love to implement some sort of food-related unit when I’m a teacher. The way we eat in the developed world is causing needless death and shortening the lives of the next generation of kids. Sharing powerful stories from his anti-obesity project in Huntington, W. Va., Jamie Oliver makes the case for an all-out assault on our ignorance of food. One of his goals? That all students know how to cook 10 healthy meals by the time they leave school. Think of the profound, landslide effect this relatively small change could have.
I found this video both deeply worrisome & profoundly inspiring; what do you think? To help promote Jamie’s cause, sign the petition here. He’s bringing it with him to the White House in order to push food education as an important component of health care reform. Given that diet-related diseases are the hugest killer in the U.S., I think his goal is of paramount importance. xo, m
