Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution
Not sure if any of you have been watching the series on ABC, Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution but I am finding it fascinating. It's a 6 part series where this impassioned British chef takes on the obesity, heart disease, diabetes and poor eating habits of the unhealthy community of Huntington West Virginia, voted the worst in the country! His hope is to create a model to take to other communities in the US and make some drastic changes. Grassroots with the help of corporate America.
Stunning to watch how the children don't even know what a vegetable looks like! And a family who fries everything! This is great discussion material, and a very loud and clear wake-up call to the education of food and food preparation in America.
Fridays at 9pm, 8 central on ABC. Check it out!
