Yesterday, I was lucky enough to see Jamie Oliver give a live talk at the Sydney Opera House. He was charming and funny and cooked some amazing food (sadly we didn’t get to eat any), but we did get a live performance from the Wiggles! But cooking aside, Jamie was here for a reason – to promote the notion he refers to as ‘Food Revolution‘.
The idea is that kids should be taught about food as early as possible, to cook it and to work with it – to recognise what is good for us, and bad; to learn tastes, flavours, combinations, even how to grow it. This idea can lead to amazing change within our nation, and the world, and will lead to a healthier, more sustainable future, for everyone. Jamie believes that we each have the power to promote change, and that we can all band together to help make our governments see that this is a good move forward for the future generations, and will benefit our society as a whole.
“My wish is to create a strong sustainable movement to educate every child about food, inspire families to cook again and empower people everywhere to fight obesity.”
