In response to this epidemic, British Chef Jamie Oliver has recently undertaken a huge initiative – to reduce obesity in the US and the UK by promoting better food in schools. Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, which is now airing on ABC on Friday evenings, takes a look at how unhealthy cities, schools, and communities are contributing to their obesity and death rates because of the food that they eat. As part of the Food Revolution, Jamie and his crew are traveling around the US (they’ve already toured the UK) to educate communities on how to make better food choices through knowledge of what food is made of, where it comes from, and how to cook healthier meals.
And Jamie isn’t stopping there! He’s encouraging everyone to start their own food revolution in their own homes, schools, and communities. On Jamie’s site, you can:
- Learn the facts and figures about obesity in your area
- Discover how to make healthy meals for yourself and your family
- Sign a petition in support of the Food Revolution
I’ve signed the petition. Have you?
Viva La Food Revolución!
