Video: Jamie Oliver on Child Nutrition

Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has become a passionate advocate for child nutrition. In this video from TED 2010, he gives a graphic demonstration of why we need to feed our children better:

We all need to fight for better child nutrition. In San Francisco, 25% of our children don’t know where their next meal is coming from.  Go here, to urge Congress to pass the Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act, which reauthorizes policy and funding for child food programs including School Meals, After-School Snack, and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants & Children (WIC).

Jamie Oliver’s new television show, about remaking the eating habits of the “unhealthiest” city in the U.S. – including providing more nutritious school meals – begins airing tonight (March 26).
