What a guy!

"I believe that every child in America has the right to fresh, nutritious school meals, and that every family deserves real, honest, wholesome food. Too many people are being affected by what they eat. It's time for a national revolution. America needs to stand up for better food!" - Jamie Oliver

I caught the series premier of Jamie's Food Revolution that aired last night and can't wait to watch the full season. Tune in to see how Jamie takes on our nation's most obese city: Huntington, VA. It's a disturbing scene watching the chefs at the local elementary school preparing lunch for children. I shudder at the thought of what I ate for 12 years in the public school system. I'm loving that Jamie is taking on this issue. It's about time someone does, and hopefully he can help faciliate some change.

Love him and love that he's taking this issue on! I am a nanny (when not auditioning as an actress) and I always try to be mindful when it comes to snacks, dinner, etc. Thanks for reminding me to check this out.
