Jamie Oliver on Food for our Children

“The power of food has a primal place in our home” -Jamie Oliver

I strongly encourage you listening to this TED Talks video. Jamie Oliver lays down the facts about the food we feed our children, and the importance of food education in schools.

Some interesting facts from Jamie’s presentation:

•Diet related disease is the biggest problem in our country
•Obesity costs Americans 10% of your health care bills (150 BILLION dollars a year)
•In ten years, it is set to double, (300 BILLION dollars a year)

Teach every child about food: Jamie Oliver’s TED Prize wish, now on TED.com.
