Jamie Oliver on the Importance of Teaching Children to Cook

"I wish for everyone to help create a strong, sustainable movement to educate every child about food, inspire families to cook again and empower people everywhere to fight obesity." ~ Jamie Oliver ~

I'm so glad we don't have this particular problem with Spawn, and yet...we overlook the sugar in chocolate milk and buy it occasionally anyway. I wonder if I did the same experiment shown in the video above whether or not Spawn could name more than one or two vegetables in their original, whole condition. We've gotten a little out of practice due to trying to keep weight on Spawn, but I think it's time to get back to the basics of whole foods for the whole family.

I'm so "with you" on this, my friend. I will admit to taking some serious pride in the fact that my grocery cart last night was 90% filled with fresh veggies and meat, with almost nothing processed or pre-made. (In fact, I was rather smug about it!) I love Jamie Oliver too -- didn't he just win some big award?

I think you mean the TED award - the one from the second video link I posted above.
