I love Jamie Oliver!


Yes, Jamies food revolution has taken America by storm and I can think of no better show on TV, the fact that it is on ABC and not a cable channel is the best! If you have not already heard of the show it is about Jamie taking on the high statistics of obesity, heart disease and diabetes in the US, where our nation's children are the first generation not expected to live as long as their parents. Oliver is inviting viewers to take a stand and change the way America eats, in home kitchens, schools and workplaces, with the thought-provoking new series, "Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution," on Fridays 9:00-10:00 p.m. (ET) on the ABC Television Network.


In his first program Jamie visits Huntington, West Virginia - which has been called the unhealthiest city in America -- to start his new cooking iniative. He hopes to help get Huntington off that list and start a chain reaction of positive change across the country. Jamie says, "The time is right for people to rediscover the sense of pride, satisfaction and fun you can get from cooking for the people you love. There's an incredible community in Huntington, and I want this experience to be a celebration of what we can achieve when people come together. I want to prove that turning around the epidemic of obesity and bad health doesn't have to be boring or dull in the slightest. Wonderful stories will unfold in Huntington, and hopefully this will inspire the rest of the States."

I think this is totally exciting. He has been all about making radical changes to the school meals system and challenging the junk food culture by showing schools they can serve fresh nutritious meals that kids enjoy eating all over England and now it is time to start his revolution here in America!

You can sign his petition by clicking here. Signing this petition will help to bring the change to our school lunch system. Jamie would like to take his petition to the White House after the TV series airs, to show The President and First Lady how many people across the country really care about this and ask for their support. I really feel that this will make a difference so join in and let's all do what we can to ensure our kids eat healthy meals... even at school!

He is very easy on the eyes too! I love that he has taken this on even though he has been highly criticized by the people of West Virginia.

Jamie Oliver is a modern day saints. He has helped young people since the start of his career and never been side tracked. We should celebrate his kindness and giving spirit! He should be made a 'Sir' in the UK.I adore him! A super role model to kids but also family-men.
