Food Revolution!

Tonight I was scrolling through the TV channels when I found on ABC "Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution." If you don't know Jamie Oliver, he is this guy:Look familiar? He is British and had a cooking show called "The Naked Chef" for a while. Now he is advocating for healthy foods in school cafeterias. He has changed how schools across Europe view their school lunches and is now working on the USA. So far, it's not looking good. He had some success in West Virginia (where the show's first season was based). Tonight was the first episode of the second season, and this time he is taking on L.A. For a city that is supposedly all about health and body image, they have some pretty bad views on food. You should check it out. Shows air at 7pm (central) Tuesday nights on ABC.

p.s. last year after seeing this show, I made my students only drink white milk. Did you know that chocolate milk has per ounce more sugar than the sugariest soda? That is scary!
