Jamie Oliver is on the Case

Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver is trying to get children to eat healthier food in schools and at home. His campaign is called Feed Me Better, and has involved taking over school kitchens in England and making the food fresher and healthier. Today he was on the Today show, which I missed, but I'm told that at one point he was shown auditing the contents of one family's fridge. Every fresh vegetable they had was for their pets. None for the humans!

I can't quibble with Jamie Oliver's excellent efforts to encourage young people to eat better food. But be warned: he recommends a lot of things (pasta, cheese, and meat) that are not the absolute healthiest. He should really read Disease-Proof Your Child.

Dr. Fuhrman should send him a couple of books to review. And why not the vinegars too.
