hungry for fast-food?

Jamie Oliver's School Dinners program, isn't rocket science. Kids eat junk. But it brings publicity to a few important issues; kids will eat whatever they think is fun according to the bombardment of advertising aimed for them, and kids and adults alike hardly have any clue or actually care about the ingredients actually in the foods they eat. My favourite part of the video is when Oliver demonstrates what is really in those chicken nuggets. mmm delicious...!!!?

Now I know why I never liked chicken nuggets! I love this show by Jamie Oliver.

That's why ignorance is bliss.

I want to watch this sooo bad but I have to wait until I am home!

I had the opportunity of working for a family in the area who's children ate only dinosaur shaped nuggets almost everyday, and finally started eating outside of their comfort zones as we went along. Parents (not all) I have seen are just lazy, or too tired from busy schedules to cook in these times. Thanks for this video!

That is exactly why my kids have not eaten one single school lunch this year! sometimes it takes a parent a while to realize what it is that we are allowing in to our kids bodies, but once you process it...ewww!

Great video clip! I like watching Jamie Oliver's programmes. I'm now catching up on his Australian restaurant series.

This is very sad but not surprising at all. I used to teach 4th grade and would frequent the cafeteria. We would have those smiley face fries a few time a week as the "vegetable"

I teach jr. high, and the junk kids eat leaves much to be desired. I used to teach in the US, where there was a free breakfast and lunch program, and the food they were served hardly resembled food at all.

It was pretty disheartening.

You will love his latest UK prog. Gail, he goes to a town near me [Rotherham] and tries to start a kind of pyramid scheme of people teaching each other to cook![i.e. trying to reach the whole population of 250 000]. Its been a little controversial here but is superb viewing....its called the "Ministry of Food"
