    I watched this show last year and I am 100% in favor of what Jamie is doing.I am very picky about what my children eat,mostly because of their food intolerances but all in all I try to avoid pre-packaged anything,I even watch their sodium intake even though they are children.I catch alot of looks and comments for being so picky about what the boys eat.But I want them to be strong and healthy. Most fruit snacks are banned from my house,for one because it's mainly sugar,for 2 because they make my eldest bounce off the walls lol

    When I watched the show I was shocked that children didn't know what the various veggies were. I make a regular "game" of it with the boys when we go to the store,we go through the produce section and do a little quiz.

    I do however have 2 kids with 2 completely different eating habits.My eldest loves carbs and is quite picky,so I try to focus on the healthy foods that he will eat and hide the "good"stuff(cookies etc...) or not buy them at all.My youngest is a very good eater and will try just about anything.He was eating Kumquats this morning,loves pickled beets and other various things.Loves,loves blueberries,my Mom tried to give him a banana instead of blueberries one day and he said "No,I want something small and blue please."

    I am all for what Jamie is doing,and I wish it would spread like wild fire.

    Sorry.

    Jamie Oliver has a new series starting in the UK this week called "Jamie's Dream School".

    Every time I see him on TV he seems to have gotten fatter.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    I love my Jamie cookbooks but I always modify the amounts of oil and butter he uses. Everything still tastes fine

    He has a new website for The Food Revolution,I received an update on my facebook earlier.I would like to get involved,especially now as my kids are starting school.(they'll have to take their lunch anyway due to wheat allergies)

    I planted part of our garden with my kids on Tuesday.Trying to show them their food being grown from start to finish,we did that last year as well and my youngest ate all the peas straight out of the pods,I barely got one bowl full for other use lol.
