Help Jamie Oliver Change Our Children's Eating Habits

in For Parents

Ahead of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, premiering on ABC this Friday, it’s worth watching his powerful 18-minute TED Prize presentation where he outlines the threat of unhealthy eating habits of America’s children.  For his work against childhood obesity, the TED Prize awarded him $100,000 towards his “One Wish to Save the World”.

“I wish for your help to create a strong, sustainable movement to educate every child about food, inspire families to cook again and empower people everywhere to fight obesity.”

Sign Jamie’s petition to show how much you care about changing the unhealthy eating habits for your children.  Sadly, just over 13,000 people have signed Jamie’s petition, and I have to believe that any parent who watches Jamie’s TED video will understand the importance of his fight to change our children’s eating habits.

Given that First Lady Michele Obama is leading her Let’s Move cause to raise healthier kids, let’s hope that real results will be achieved.  After all, we pack our daughter’s school lunches because there’s no way we’ll let her eat what they’re serving at her school.
