TED Talk: Teach Every Child About Food

(I’m a big fan of TED Talks. Regardless of the subject matter, the talks are always interesting, thought-provoking, and inspiring. Occasionally, I will be sharing some of my favorites, which stand on their own without much commentary needed from me.)

Jamie Oliver is a chef turned food activist. In this passionate and eye-opening TED Talk, he implores us all to participate in his Food Revolution.  He wants us to teach our children about food: where it comes from, how to cook it, and how to eat it in a healthful way.  Citing sky-rocketing statistics of obesity among children and revealing the frightening reality that more and more children are going to die from diet-related diseases, he says radically changing our relationship with food is a must.

    Melissa, You have urged me to watch this Ted Talk by Jamie Oliver for months. Today I finally did take 20-some minutes out of my “busy” (according to me) Life to see it. The question to myself is, “Why did I wait so long?”

    I’m going to share this! I wish Jamie was around when my kids were young! However, it’s never too late to develop healthy eating habits! Thanks for sharing the knowledge Melissa!

    Great guy with a vital message. I am so grateful for the growing trend across our nation to eat fresh and local and to recognize the importance of preparing meals from scratch. Thanks a bunch for this inspiring message Melissa and Lynn – will pass it on and on.
