Jamie Oliver: Teach every child about food

February 16th, 2010 by Justin Kemerling
2010 TED Prize 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.” Watch his talk at TED.com: Sharing powerful stories from his anti-obesity project in Huntington, W. Va., TED Prize winner Jamie Oliver makes the case for an all-out assault on our ignorance of food. Quite a TED performance. Personal. Political. Passionate. If we're going to make lasting changes in our society, we HAVE TO directly challenge "conventional wisdom" and those powerful interests who want to keep things exactly as they are. Some of what comes out of a challenge like that is going to be uncomfortable. It's going to come with ridicule. Probably some ruthless assaults from the "free-marketeers." But to fix our ills, we've got to hit 'em head on.
