Teach every child about food | Jamie Oliver


Teach every child about food | Jamie Oliver

Sharing powerful stories from his anti-obesity project in Huntington, W. Va., TED Prize winner Jamie Oliver makes the case for an all-out assault on our ignorance of food.

Jamie Oliver is transforming the way we feed ourselves, and our children. Jamie Oliver has been drawn to the kitchen since he was a child working in his father's pub-restaurant. He showed not only a precocious culinary talent but also a passion for creating (and talking about) fresh, honest, delicious food. In the past decade, the shaggy-haired Naked Chef of late-'90s BBC2 has built a worldwide media conglomerate of TV shows, books, cookware and magazines, all based on a formula of simple, unpretentious food that invites everyone to get busy in the kitchen. And as much as his cooking is generous, so is his business model -- his Fifteen Foundation, for instance, trains young chefs from challenged backgrounds to run four of his restaurants.

Now, Oliver is using his fame and charm to bring attention to the changes that Brits and Americans need to make in their lifestyles and diet. Campaigns such as Jamie's School Dinner, Ministry of Food and Food Revolution USA combine Olivers culinary tools, cookbooks and television, with serious activism and community organizing -- to create change on both the individual and governmental level.

NOTE: Comments are disabled on this video. We made this difficult decision for the TED Archive because we believe that a well-moderated conversation allows for better commentary from more people and more viewpoints. Studies show that aggressive and hateful comments silence other commenters and drive them away; unfortunately, YouTube's comment moderation tools are simply not up to the task of allowing us to monitor comments on so many videos at once. (We'd love to see this change, YouTube.) So for now, if you'd like to comment on this talk, please use Facebook, Twitter or G+ to discuss with your networks.

Starting a Food Revolution in School | TED + GBS Present Torchbearers

When students at London’s Charlton Manor Primary School learn about history, they use chocolate. In math class, they weigh and measure fruit smoothies. For a lesson in shapes and sizes, they utilize bananas and grapes. Taking inspiration from world-renowned chef and TED prize winner Jamie Oliver, head teacher Timothy Baker began incorporating food into all subjects at the primary school. By making food an integral part of the curriculum, Baker hopes to teach children the importance of valuing food and cultivating healthy eating habits. The school has even built its own vegetable patch, chicken coop and beehive to harvest honey. Because of the efforts of those like Baker and Oliver, education is feeding not only the minds, but also the stomachs of the next generation.
