Jamie Oliver to Give YOU a Personal Cooking Lesson?

Jamie Oliver is out to change the world. The world of kids specifically. Enter: Food Revolution Day.

From the website.

With diet-related illnesses rising at an alarming rate, it has never been more important to educate people about food and how to cook it.

article3Cooking skills used to be passed down from generation to generation, but now millions of people lack even the most basic knowledge to make a simple meal from scratch or have simply lost the confidence to try. We need to get back to basics: to cook and eat fresh local produce; to share cooking skills and food knowledge; to join forces within communities and get as many people involved as possible. Food Revolution Day is our opportunity to get the world to focus on the importance of keeping cooking skills alive for generations to come.

Jamie Olivers Solution – Getting Kids ‘Food Smart’.

By educating children about food in a fun and engaging way we’re equipping them, and generations to come, with the skills they need to live healthier lives. We want as many people as possible to show kids how important it is to understand where food comes from, how to cook it and how it affects their bodies. It can be as simple as getting them cooking a Food Revolution Day recipe or trying a new ingredient. That’s not to say Food Revolution Day is exclusive to kids – whoever you are, join in, get cooking and share your love of food.

Research shows:

  • Children who learn to cook are more likely to make healthier food choices, have better diets and understand how food affects their bodies1.
  • Children who eat nutritious meals at lunchtime perform better academically and are less likely to take days off school2.
  •  Improving diet and increasing physical activity are more effective than taking medication in reducing the risk of type-2 diabetes3,4.
  • Home-cooked meals do not contain any unknown additives or fillers and are often higher in nutrients, lower in trans-fats, saturated fats, sodium and calories5.
