The meals he made cost twice as much as they processed foods they were using before. No wonder school’s struggle to serve healthy fresh foods. It’s obviously more expensive and school’s are always on a budget.
The two hour premiere of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution on ABC had me squirming on my couch and shaking my head in disgust. Did you see that chicken and how he chopped it up and threw it in the blender? Oh, that was just so awful.
All the fat that he threw in the dumpster to show the community of parents and children how much fat they eat every year, and he just sat on it. I was happy to see that the parents cared and were in shocked about what Jamie was telling them.
Jamies attempt to make his own batch of healthy foods was a success… but it didn’t start out that way. The nurses do not like him. Actually, I think it’s kind of funny and I feel bad for Jamie. He’s just too cute when he says You’re kidding me, right? Are you kidding me? in his accent of his. The moment when he asked if the children were using silverware and the cook just looked at him like he was out of this planet was priceless.
Go Jamie! It’s your birthday! Go Jamie!
Excellant point about teaching our kids to read and spell and add numbers together but not teaching them how to eat properly or even what to eat.
But, shouldn’t the health and the fuel we spend on our kids be a top priority?
What’s the point of having a state-of-the-art gymnasium with top quality sports equipment if they kids are eating junk?
My case stands firm.
I wasn’t surprised that the show will continue couple weeks and that the Director of Food Services decided to allow him to stay a little longer. It is a show after all, and I have to believe that the network as something to do with the show continuing. I think really though, more than anything, is that Jamie had an affect on the parents. He convinced the parents that the food needs to be changed, and I’m sure if the Director didn’t allow him to stay cooking, she’d be hearing from some angry parents.
Did you watch the show? What did you think of it?
