Educate each baby about meals | Jamie Oliver

http://www.ted.com Sharing powerful stories from his anti-obesity project in Huntington, W. Va., TED Prize winner Jamie Oliver makes the case for an all-out assault on our ignorance of food.

Jamie Oliver is transforming the way we feed ourselves, and our children. Jamie Oliver has been drawn to the kitchen since he was a child working in his father’s pub-restaurant. He showed not only a precocious culinary talent but also a passion for creating (and talking about) fresh, honest, delicious food. In the past decade, the shaggy-haired “Naked Chef” of late-’90s BBC2 has built a worldwide media conglomerate of TV shows, books, cookware and magazines, all based on a formula of simple, unpretentious food that invites everyone to get busy in the kitchen. And as much as his cooking is generous, so is his business model — his Fifteen Foundation, for instance, trains young chefs from challenged backgrounds to run four of his restaurants.

Now, Oliver is using his fame and charm to bring attention to the changes that Brits and Americans need to make in their lifestyles and diet. Campaigns such as Jamie’s School Dinner, Ministry of Food and Food Revolution USA combine Olivers culinary tools, cookbooks and television, with serious activism and community organizing — to create change on both the individual and governmental level.

  1. I may be able to point you in the right direction. There are five basic nutrients: fats, proteins, and carbohydrates, the macronutrients; and vitamins and minerals, the micronutrients. Each one of these nutrients deserve equal respect but much confusion surrounds carbohydrates owing to the fact that most of the world eats refined carbohydrates, polishing off or sifting out the bran and germ and in the process stripping the grain of all it's nutritional value. The solution is simply to start eating non gm whole foods such as brown, red or wild rice, brown bread, amaranth, sweet potatoes, potatoes, millet, yams, oats, einkorn, barley, or wheat berries and if you find that soybean oil, a common additive in bread makes you fart look for silver hills sprouted power bread, or brown bread from a local green market.

  2. society shames people for drug use. why is excessive salt fat sugar abuse accepted? we need a cultural change. if you eat junk food regularly you are no different from a junkie after his next hit. ignorance is bliss. unhealthy coorporations profit from your addiction and death the sooner this information is made known the better

  3. On a top of a that..no CHILD over the age of 2 ..or any grown up for that matter ..should be drinking milk.
    Milk is for the cows babies.
    And even those..stop drinking mothers milk quite fast.
    We are not calves.
    We need no milk at all.
    Fermented milk.products are great though.
    Eat them yourself and feed your child with plain full fat yoghurt..kefir..butter milk for extensive benefits.
    Full cream is good too because it has concentration of best saturated fats !!!
    But no plain milk

  4. I love the ideas he's backing here.

    I do wish his TED talk didn't come across so fat-shamey and that he'd focus more on what our social norms are in relation to nutrition and home economics basics like cooking healthy meals and understanding portion/calories and how these things affect one's health.

    Additionally, tasting a variety of foods, no matter the age of the individual, the more likely it is for that person to be open to new flavors, consistencies, and combinations and therefore will likely be more exploratory when it comes to food options as choices.

    Feeding yourself and your family is built on habits. Cooking meals is time consuming and takes mental effort at the end of a long day when you're already mentally exhausted. Most people want something easy and quick, meaning something they're familiar with and can put together without much thought – of course, this doesn't mean processed food. It's not impossible to learn later in life but it much easier to start young and imbed those habits and positivity towards fresh food flavor profiles.

  5. If vegetables tasted and looked like meat, i'd eat them but since they look weird and have foul smell(especially tomatoes), why should I eat something that is supposedly "healthy" if tasting it makes me gag out of disgustingness?

  6. So did that first girl die at 22? Because if she didn't then maybe a lot of what he said was hyperbole and exaggeration. Heart disease is number one because we have practically eliminated infant mortality and reduced accidents, which held the high spots historically. After heart issues, like it stopping when we die, what's left is a distant second.

  7. And nowadays, we're starting to see the other end of the horseshoe. Where sugars and fats are so vilified that they're not taught as necessary nutrients that have to be balanced, but things to be avoided at all costs. Where fruits and fruit juices with no added sugars are bemoaned for their natural sugar content and even planned to be taxed for what they are. Where children aren't being taught about balanced diets, that healthy foods are the best thing in the world even though overindulgence of healthy foods can damage your health just as easily as unhealthy foods.

  8. I remember my 8 year birthday where the kids screamed and shouted in disgust because my parents had made a birthday-surprise of oranges pierced with pieces of various fruits to make something different and healthy instead of the traditional birthday-cake. What a fiasko.

  9. Go to Germany to know what makes people fat.
    Stupidity and lack of love.
    Raise your kids yourself, take care of yourself and your kids. Do things the way they are right, not the way you are told or the way they are comfortable.
    My patients are almost all trying to live that way. They take responsibility for their lives. I have nearly no obese patient below age 18, and few below 35. Those who are over 35 are very seldomly severely obese. Those who are a moderately obese usually have severe emotional problems or are disabled.
    Almost NONE of my juvenile patients are being served any kind of lemonade more often than once a month.

    Those who don't care will NEVER be lean in masses in a country where there's a food industry.

    Being lean is a choice.

  10. The silence of this audience is so disappointing. They're so verbally disconnected, it's evident they're in the zone of "I've seen/heard this sort of thing so many times, I can't be emotionally impacted/effected any more". So no WONDER nothing's been done. It's vile. "We shall remember not the voices of our enemies but the silence of our friends." ~ Martin Luther-King

    Edit: The standing ovation at th end was lovely, but the lack of action was thoroughly disappointing.
