It's simple. We need better food education.
Jamie Oliver has always been passionate about food education in our schools and with your help he is aiming to make it a reality. He has already tackled the state of school dinners with the exposure of Turkey Twizzlers which has initiated the School Food Plan but now he is set to change the course of food education for all G20 countries with Food Revolution Day taking place on the 15th of May.
With over 700,000 signatures on his petition already including Kylie Minogue, Ed Sheeran, Hugh Jackman, James Corden, Ryan Reynolds, Matthew McConaughey, and many more, Jamie wants to bring food education into schools to provide knowledge and skills that will help the next generation avoid obesity and live healthier and happier lives.
Countries such as Mexico, Brazil, Japan and Finland all promote healthy eating in their education system and Jamie wants to see this change in our country before it's too late...
So why is he doing it?
- Under the age of 5 there are 42 million children overweight or obese
- The biggest killer in the world today are diet related illnesses
- It's predicted that todays generation are the first ever to live shorter lives than their parents
