Jamie’s Food Revolution USA | Campaign for healthy eating | Jamie Oliver.You know – I’ve always loved food. Yeah, I know – I’ve admitted it here before – I’m a picky girl. The fact that I have a choice is something that I cherish each and every day.
Do you know that a significant number of children rely on school-provided meals as their main source of nutrition?
How long since you’ve been in a school cafeteria?
How long since you’ve read the labels of the food that school kids are getting served?
It’s a scary, scary thing.
I live in a part of the country that has a growing trend of schools starting gardens and actually using the produce from those gardens – gardens that the children help to tend and harvest (how cool is that?!). Even so – the fare that is served to my own kids – one middle schooler and two high schoolers – is oftentimes appalling.
Know what else? There are rules – LOTS of rules – oftentimes truly IDIOTIC rules – governing what is allowed to be served. Rules like a kid can be served a burger and fries and it will be called a “nutritionally complete” meal, but a stir-fry with fresh vegetables, rice, and fresh fruit can’t be called nutritionally complete – until you add another starch – you know, like french fries or a dinner roll! Ugh!
I’ve been watching Jamie’s Food Revolution since it first aired. I simply can’t miss an episode. A couple of weeks ago I had to have a little surgical procedure done and missed my episode! Thank you Lord Jesus for online viewing at abc.com! I was able to catch up the next day – phew!
If you haven’t been watching Jamie’s Food Revolution – why not start now?
Go go abc.com and watch the previous episodes so that you can be caught up for tonight’s episodes.

It’s worth the investment of time – I promise!
