This Food Revolution is about saving America's health by changing the way people eat. It's not just a TV show; it's a movement for you, your family and your community. If you care about your kids and their future, take this revolution and make it your own. Educate yourself about food and cooking, and find out what your child is eating at school. Make only a few small changes and magical things will happen. Switching from processed to fresh food will not only make you feel better, it will also add years to your life.

In an attempt to help people create healthy lifestyles through their diet, Jamie Oliver has started a food revolution in the U.S. To achieve this he has been helping schools to ditch the junk food and instead serve easy to prepare healthy alternatives. He is also helping teachers in schools to educate students about "how amazing food is, where it comes from, how it affects the body and how it can save their lives" (Oliver, 2014, para. 1).
This website has a range of different resources including recipes and all sorts of educational toolkits that teachers may be able to use to educate students about food. In relation to the Technologies Curriculum, these resources will allow students to be educated about food preparation. The use of such sources may also be integrated into Health Education, so students may learn about nutrition.
What do you think? Should food education be a part of schooling?
To finish here is a very inspirational article written by a mother, whose child has autism. By being involved in cooking classes, that were offered through Jamie Oliver's Big Rig Tour, she was able to work collaboratively with her son to change their eating habits, just by learning how to make yummy, healthy food!
