2 Here's an idea--how about food companies stop making borderline poisonous crap? People can't die from eating it if it ceases to be made. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 10, 2011, 5:56 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 DolFan, Well, considering that it's showing how a government run school system of a large US metropolitan area is actively pushing unhealthy foods on the city's youth to the point of trying to BAN any dissenting options or voices [to say nothing about how near adult youth are being shown having been kept APPALLING ignorant of even the most elemental nutrition and food source info], I think it's actually a bit eye-opening and I hope those are concerned about the possibility of larger percentages of folks in rising generations suffering from serious diet/exercise related longterm health problems will at least consider what steps they can individually take to help those loved ones in their life to avoid such calamnities. For example, diabetes is on the rise and not only does this mean amputations but 60 percent of diabetic go BLIND. Hence, if one estimate's forecast of one-third of all children born after 2000 contracting diabetes comes true, do the math and think of what this could mean for our nation's future if this goes unchecked . The main downside to the program is Jamie's constant pity-party for himself re others' resistance. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 9, 2011, 2:00 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 High School students don't know where butter comes from? Forget their eating habits, I'm more concerned about their education! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 9, 2011, 12:54 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Wait, butter comes from cows??? I thought people just made it from scratch by churning it and stuff ;-) This show just seems like more food nannyism, and food nannies annoy me. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 8, 2011, 7:12 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I saw the episode when high school students failed to correctly guess that butter comes from cows even with the help of a multiple choice format! How is that no parent or teacher had ever taught them that before high school?! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 8, 2011, 8:24 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 I think Jamie Oliver has good intentions, but I'm conflicted. A part of me is like this is common sense. Don't feed your kids junk food or fast food all the time, take time to cook them a meal, and teach them proper basic nutrition and exercising habits. At the same time, it's unrealistic that schools are going to change the way things are right now. With how many kids go to public school and school budgets as small as they are, they need a system that is fast and efficient. Processed pre-prepared food is the way to make that happen. If parents want their students to eat high quality, fresh food, look into private schools with chefs that will cook those kinds of meals. Most public schools won't be able to afford that type of food. The whole thing is a sad realization of how bad parents have become and how broken the public school system really is. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on October 23, 2010, 1:10 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
