Food Revolution Day 2016

Today is food revolution day!  If you don’t know about Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution you can check out all sorts of info on his webpage Here.  Food Revolution is about each and every one of us taking a stand when it comes to food by making small changes that push for more positive changes in our current food industry.

Food Revolutionaries encourage people to cook with your kids, buy better products that support a more fair system, and read up on current food issues.  I think the most important aspect of the Food Revolution is getting back to cooking with real food and ingredients.  Health issues are running rampant in our country and many of the health issues people face can be contributed to food choices.  So, I challenge you, even if it’s just for today to only eat real food.  Take one small step in changing your habits, your children’s habits, and the direction of the food industry and only eat whole unprocessed food, just for today.  I promise it’s not that hard,  and if you need a little help Jamie Oliver has some delicious recipes you can check out Here .

Food Revolution Day

It seems lately that Food has been a topic that has come up everywhere.  I think about food choices daily as I run around in this chaotic place trying to live and balance life.  I hear my friends struggle about making food choices.  I hear in my groups, people wanting to learn more about food, food choices and nutrition.

So, with all this food on my mind, I thought it was time to remind everyone about:

Food Revolution Day.food-rev-day

What is Food Revolution Day about?

“Access to good, fresh, nutritious food is every child’s human right, but currently we’re failing our children. Millions of kids are eating too much of the wrong food, while millions more don’t get enough of the good stuff to let them grow and thrive. We need to unite as one strong, single voice to force governments and businesses to create a healthier, happier world for the future.”  Sign up now and join the revolution!

Today is Food Revolution Day!!!!

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

With diet-related diseases rising at an alarming rate, it has never been more important to educate children about food, where it comes from and how it affects their bodies.

WHAT’S THE ANSWER?

“By educating children about food in a practical, fun and engaging way, we can provide them with the knowledge and skills they so urgently need to lead healthier, happier lives. We need to make practical food education a compulsory part of every school curriculum across the world, and that’s why I’ve launched a petition calling on all G20 countries to action this. With enough support from millions of people around the world, I truly believe that we can create a movement that’s powerful enough to make governments take action.”

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

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!
