What are we feeding our children?

When I watched the “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution”, I was outraged. Our children are getting pizza for breakfast, chicken nuggets for lunch, flavored milk as a snack… in their schools! This show is a must-see for all parents. If you haven’t watch it, I invite you to do so; and take action afterwards. Make sure you know what your little kids are putting in their bodies.

Jamie Oliver, a well-known chef from Britain, is taking his war against unhealthy eating habits to American shores. The U.S. is suffering from an obesity epidemic (specially among children) and he aims to stop it.

The scene of kids eating pizza for breakfast and thinking a tomato is a potato; children up to 10 years old not knowing how to use an knife and a fork; school bureaucrats calling french fries a vegetable; and school cooks not having a problem with serving all-processed meals to children day in and day out, is really rivetingly sad. This is just a sample of what he fins in our school:

Here’s the video of his speech at TED, as well as the trailer for “Food Revolution”:

You can also watch the show online here.

Please, watch it and take action!!! Don’t let your children suffer from obesity, diabetes and many other complications that they shouldn’t have to deal with.
