I’m a busy parent, just like you. I don’t get a lot of time to watch TV and whatever I do watch is thanks to my DVR. That being said, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution is one show every parent person in America should not miss. Why should we care about how the children in our country eat? Because whether you are a parent or not, the quality of the food we eat in this country affects everyone. And the food we put in our mouths directly affects the lives we lead. In a country as amazing as America, we have no excuse for serving our kids processed, chemical laden food.
As parents, we expect a lot from our kids. We want them to do well in school and in life. If we only want what’s best for them, why are we willing to let them receive less than the best nutrition, in school of all places? We are our child’s first and most important teacher and it’s our responsibility to show them the way. From the moment we begin feeding them solids, we are setting an example. Teaching a child to have a healthy relationship with food from the very beginning will enable them to lead healthy lives as adults. After all, what’s more important in ones life than health?
Please take a second to sign Jamie’s Our Food Revolution Petition and pass it along to your friends. If you have a blog, proudly display the Food Revolution badge on your page. This is a fight we can win, if we are all in it together. Let’s make this change together, for ourselves and especially for our children!
