Join the Revolution!

I am completely obsessed with Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution and his campaign for healthy eating. He is trying to change the way America eats, one person, one school, one town at a time. The message is simple: eat fresh, homemade, non-processed food. In other words, get back in the kitchen and cook! If you haven't seen the show yet, it shows Friday nights on ABC. Past episodes are available to watch on Hulu, so you have plenty of time to catch up before next Friday.

Sign Jamie's petition to improve school food, which will help children learn better eating habits, focus better in school (without all that added sugar and preservatives to mess with their growing brains), and have healthier futures. I think an important part of this whole program is to teach kids what is healthy and how to make good choices when it comes to food. If kids knew that processed, chemical, sugar, and fat-laden foods weren't good for them, they wouldn't eat them. Parents can start at home, teaching their children about fresh foods and how to cook simple meals. Grow a garden in the backyard or even in a window box. Learn where food comes from and what it looks like in its natural state.
