Jamie Oliver is determined to transform the way we feed our children! Such a powerful and needed mission, Oliver was recently awarded the TED prize for his work and gave the above presentation of his ‘One Wish to Change the World.’ What is his wish exactly:
“I wish for your help to create a strong, sustainable movement to educate every child about food, inspire families to cook again and empower people everywhere to fight obesity.”
Moving to West Virginia to tackle the problem first-hand, Oliver has generated the perfect case study for change. In the above video he highlights his work to date. The accounts are eye-opening though I particularly appreciate the steps he has taken towards solving the problem that seem realistic for any school to incorporate: 2- 1hour sessions in classes, demanding better foods in schools.
Oliver also praises a few ‘angels’ that are already pioneering change. Though he doesn’t mention them all directly, we have been impressed by a few programs:
