Jamie Oliver Launches Petition for Compulsory Practical Food Education


Share On Social!

Jamie Oliver, the British Celebrity Chef-turned school food activist, began hosting a worldwide Food Revolution Day a few years ago. He passionately believes that by educating children about food in a fun and engaging way, we can equip them with the basic skills they need to lead healthier, happier lives, for themselves and their future families.

In celebration of this year’s Food Revolution Day on May 15th, Oliver has launched a petition asking leaders and governments of all G20 countries to make practical food education a compulsory part of every school curriculum. On his website, Oliver argues that  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.
