Food Revolution Day

food revolutionToday is Food Revolution Day, sponsored by British chef, Jamie Oliver.  Oliver is concerned with the obesity epidemic and believes that if you teach kids in a fun engaging way about healthy food and how to cook it the number of overweight and obese children will begin to decline.  He is encouraging people world-wide to sign an online petition urging leaders of all G20 countries to make compulsory practical food education part of school curriculum.  Currently the petition has over 1 million signatures from people in 196 countries.  The link is below.  Check it out.  There is also a link on that site to Jamie Oliver’s Food Foundation USA which is worth a look too.
