  • That’s a great video and really not surprising actually. However, I bet most kids from Huntington, WV would be able to pick out those veggies. I started my surgical training there and surprisingly, most families have gardens in their homes, but admittedly, diet and exercise were not priorities. I’d bet not a child in Corpus Christi would get anything correct!

YOU SAY YOU WANT A REVOLUTION, WELL YOU KNOW…

 

Jamie Oliver, an impassioned chef, TV personality and best-selling author, is determined to take action on exploiting the high statistics of obesity, heart disease and diabetes in this country.  His new show will help invite viewers to take a stand and change the way America eats, in our kitchens, schools and workplaces.  This new, thought-provoking series, “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution,” debutes FRIDAY, MARCH 26 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.

 

Jamie will start his healthful initiative in Huntington, West Virginia, “the unhealthiest city in America”.  Jamie says, “The time is right for people to rediscover the sense of pride, satisfaction and fun you can get from cooking for the people you love… I want to prove that turning around the epidemic of obesity and bad health doesn’t have to be boring or dull in the slightest.  Wonderful stories will unfold in Huntington, and hopefully this will inspire the rest of the States.”

 

The “Food Revlotuion” series is slightly based on Jamie Oliver’s U.K. series: “Jamie’s Ministry of Food” and “Jamie’s School Dinners”.  The first series displayed successful grass-roots efforts, thus resulting in improvements in school lunches.  “Jamie’s School Dinners”  resulted in a total overhaul of the school dinner program in the U.K.

 

“Food Revolution” in America, hopes to help turn attention to helping people of all ages eat more balanced meals and cook with fresh ingredients, not only at schools, but at homes, workplaces and even restaurants. Challenged by ingrained unhealthy habits and government bureaucracy, embedded by local naysayers, and welcomed by some of the most surprising guests,“Food Revolution” will display how in just a few short months Jaime transforms Huntington as a template for the entire country!
