Help Jamie Oliver with his wish

Posted Feb 12 2010 12:00am

Help Jamie Oliver with fulfilling his wish:

“I wish for your help to create a strong, sustainable movement to educate every child about food, inspire families to cook again and empower people everywhere to fight obesity.”
One thing he mentioned we do is to teach our kids to cook healthy meals at home. No one can argue that we all need to eat more vegetables, so lets teach each other and our kids on how to prepare more of them.  I know there are many opportunities to do so every day.  Think about what's most important to you - is it a life free of disease, suffering, doctors visits, pain, etc?

I realize that priorities change with time so maybe these things become important when you actually get sick, or get older.  If you are a parent, model healthy eating at home and get educated about what foods you should eat most of for great health  and your child will inevitably pay attention and learn from you.

Another thing is to support the organizations that align themselves with promoting health instead of organizations that promote drug research.  Think of the millions of dollars we give to do the research, instead of supporting nutrition education for kids or local farmers who deliver fresh produce.
