Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution

How would you feel if someone comes into your living room and tells you how to handle your business? Well, that is exactly how the people of Huntington, WV felt when British celeb chef Jamie Oliver showed up to overhaul school lunches. Of course, there are many school lunch programs are full of low-cost, easy-to-prepare unhealthy lunches. But enlisting a British chef isn’t the only way to bring nutritious school lunches to your community.

Congress is expected to vote on the reauthorization of the Child Nutrition Act, but if you are looking for something more immediate and direct, look into Farm to School programs in your area. Farm to School programs connect schools with local farms to bring healthy food to kids. These programs do the same thing that jamie’s program does to improve children’s and their families attitudes towards healthy food and involve the children and their families in school lunch decisions.

Personally, I enjoyed the pizza and french fries that I received at school because I didn’t get it at home. Anonymous teacher, Mrs. Q, has created a blog to improve awareness on school lunch nutrition.

I know there is editing and such, but that Alice is one ornery lunch lady, isn’t she? The one thing I do like is the honesty on this show. When you watch other shows where junk food is laid out on the table, people on the show are always like, that is so disgusting. You didn’t think it was disgusting when you became 30, 50, 100 lbs overweight.
