Did you know that Food Revolution Day is this Friday May 15th?  Do you know what Food Revolution Day is?  Neither did I.

FOOD REVOLUTION DAY IS FIGHTING TO PUT COMPULSORY PRACTICAL FOOD EDUCATION ON THE SCHOOL CURRICULUM.

This is Jamie Oliver’s message:

Hi guys, Jamie here.

I urgently need your help to make a real difference. We’re currently facing a global obesity epidemic, with 42 million children under the age of five either overweight or obese across the world. The bottom line is the next generation will live shorter lives than their parents if nothing is done to rectify these alarming stats.

So I’m asking that you do two simple things – first, please sign this petition to show your support for compulsory practical food education in schools across the world, then, most importantly, share it via your social networks.

It’s essential that we arm future generations with the life skills they urgently need in order to lead healthier, happier, more productive lives. I passionately believe this is every child’s human right and I hope you agree.

If you can help me get millions of people to sign this petition, we cancreate a movement powerful enough to force all G20 governments to take action. Food education will make a difference to the lives of the next generations, so please help. I can’t do it without you.

Sign it, share it and let’s inspire governments to do the right thing.

Big love

Sign it. Share it. Support @JamieOliver on #FoodRevolutionDay change.org/jamieoliver

I immediately signed this petition as a while back I had stumbled across the below article which displays pictures of school lunches from around the world.  The US lunch is the most unappetizing, and unhealthy looking lunch tray of the bunch and the only way this will change is if we, the people, the parents, the students, make it change.  So join Jamie Oliver in the food revolution fight!  Sign it, Share it, and TEACH YOUR KIDS TO EAT HEALTHY!
