This is crazy! I think Jamie Oliver should visit the Pitt-Jolie household.
“In a recent interview with CBS This Morning, the Oscar nominated actor Brad Pitt (“Moneyball”), revealed that he sometimes has to rely on a certain carbonated beverage to get his kids moving in the morning.”
“Listen, I admit there’s times like, ‘We gotta get up. Get up! Here’s your shoes. Here’s your shoes. Drink this Coke. Drink this Coca-Cola. Drink it all. Right now! Drink it! Drink it! Drink it!’ Just so we could get ’em up and going,” Pitt confessed.”
I’ve been a fan since the days of The Naked Chef and Pukka Tukka (way back). Who doesn’t love Jamie Oliver? He’s cute, has a funny accent, makes yummy and easy (peasy) looking food and seems like a great dad and friend. I’ll tell you who…the lunch ladies in the town of Huntington, West Virginia. If you haven’t seen the show Jamie’s Food Revolution, you should. It’s a great look at the American school system’s archiac nutritional rules and guidelines, staunch opposition to change and how overall poor eating habits are hurting our kids, families and comunities.
There are certainly some wonderful voices and movements of change in the area of food and food production. Some that come immediately to mind are Michel Pollan, Alice Waters, Eric Schlosser, Slow Food USA, Morgan Spurlock, as well as others. It’s great that food is getting so much attention – whether you see it as a political issue, safety issue, health issue, economics issue, human rights issue, animal issue…there’s no doubt it is an ISSUE that affects everyone.
I’m excited to help anyone that raises awareness about the lack of fresh, safe, healthy food for everyone, especially children. Lately I’ve been doing more parent education at local preschools and elementary schools in the Bay Area to assist with healthier food guidelines, tips and ideas for packing a healthy lunch, and how to create waste free lunches. I’d love to be doing more in the area, and helping the cause.
