Jamie’s School Dinners

Food Network Canada has been airing Channel 4’s Jamie’s School Dinners series this month. The series cover’s Oliver’s efforts to get junk food — french fries, turkey twizzlers, chicken nuggets and the like — out of British schools, replaced with freshly prepared, healthy food.

The programmes are interesting and well-produced, and Oliver’s campaign is brilliant. If you’re in a position where you want to influence kids’ eating habits — or, indeed, anyone’s eating habits — you should watch this.

You can order a Feed Me Better Starter Pack from the show’s website, or download a sample; the campaign itself has a website too.

This is also a great show about making changes in big institutional systems — dealing with fear of change at all levels, not leaving anyone behind, what happens when theory and reality collide.
