Jamie Oliver wants your grandchildren to eat healthier. The British celebrity chef is on a mission to change the way America eats ? and he's spreading the word via a cookbook, website, and a new prime-time ABC series, Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution.
With childhood obesity on the rise, kids need to learn about proper nutrition and eating healthfully now more than ever ? and those lessons, Oliver believes, must start at home, where children should pick up healthy habits by following their parents' example. The core of Oliver's philosophy has always been providing kids with well-balanced, home-cooked meals. If adults and children made better food choices, and learned to cook wholesome, good meals, he argues, everyone would be healthier.
I am a mother of a chunky 12 year old boy........I'm going to buy this book and look up some of his recipes now!! This is a great idea & I need help and my son wants to lose some weight as well. New Year new lifestyle!! Thanks for your help Jamie!! :)
Its really sad that a lot of people shun him and think of his episodes and book(s) as a joke. the man is trying to save them but a handful of people aren't paying him any mind! this is extremely sad how spoiled rotten these kids and irresponsible the parents are. I want to live long, see my kids grow up and be with them/for them on their most important days.
I watched this show when it aired in 2010, and loved it. It is truly alarming what our children eat day in and day out at school. We decided this year that we would pack our daughter's lunch every day except for one day a week, when she can choose a school lunch she'd like to eat. It's been working well so far.
