In Ukraine, now at the height of the popularity of culinary show Master Chef Children led by Ector Jimenez-Bravo, Tatyana Litvinova and Nikolay Tishchenko. In England and the US there are culinary stars like Jamie Oliver. This famous chef took seriously the nutrition of schoolchildren and began a real revolution in school nutrition.
Proper nutrition is the guarantee of health. This simple truth has long been learned by everyone. But understanding does not always mean follow. So, Jamie Oliver believes that the food of schoolchildren in England and the United States is fundamentally wrong. And health, as they say, you need to be protected from the youth. Therefore, Jamie personally undertook to solve the problem of school meals. What happened, Julia Koshelyaeva told vospitaj.com.
British chef Jamie Oliver is known for the extravagant culinary show Kitchen Jamie and Cooking for 30 minutes. In the English-speaking world, he is also known as a propagandist of a healthy diet and a fighter with fast food.
At the beginning of zero, Oliver seriously tackled the problem of school nutrition and education in the field of healthy food, believing that most British children eat half-finished products and snacks, and also they do not get enough money for food. In fact, the level of obesity among the British adult population is the highest in Europe and in some places exceeds the average US level. Obesity suffers almost 900 thousand children under 11 years of age mdash; this number has doubled in the past 50 years.
In addition, the showman actively agitates against excessively sweet drinks. To demonstrate how much sugar Los Angeles schools add to baby milk for one week, he filled the school bus with granulated sugar and poured it through the windows and doors. It turned out 57 tons of sugar. Any judge in the world, after looking at these statistics, will find the government guilty of harsh treatment of children, mdash; Oliver comments similar performance on TED. Later, the host of the BBC, in a similar way, put the head of the European Coca-Cola James Quincy in an uncomfortable position.
If you give children fizzy drinks you freak. If you give them chips mdash; You're stupid. If your child does not eat normal hot meals, deal with this as soon as possible, mdash; says Jamie Oliver.
After returning to Britain, Oliver analyzed the partial success of the campaign to change the school menu and decided to focus on changing eating habits at the family level. Do not need five times a day to tell people that they are all bad. We need to be closer to them. We need to do for them a site where they can learn to prepare food for free. This is the only way to move forward, mdash; the chef is sure.
