A Show Worth Checking Out

I happened to catch the last half of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution on Friday night and thought it was well worth watching. It's a new reality show on ABC and it's all about what our kids eat. Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver first set his sights on transforming school lunches in his home of Great Britain and now he's turning to America. Apparently, he is quite convincing because Great Britain has just invested over $1 billion to improve their school lunch program.

If your kids are in the pizza, burgers, and chicken nuggets stage (whether at home or at school), it's worth checking out. Most shocking was the scene where they show kindergartners a variety of fresh vegetables and ask them to name them. While they could all name french fries in a heartbeat, they looked as if they had never seen a potato! It's sad to see how far processed food has taking us from the raw ingredients.

The show airs Fridays at 9pm. If you want to check out the premier, click the link above.
