5.0 out of 5 stars A look at today's very sick food habbits in schools, 28 July 2005
This review is from: Jamie's School Dinners [DVD] (DVD)
Living in Belgium, I did not have a chance to watch the show in TV. I therefore was very impatient to get the DVD as I had heard of the show on 2 cooking forums I attend.
What can I say except that the reality of school dinners is even more scary and sick than I thought...and that Jamie only realized what he was facing once in was in it up to the neck.
You can't help but wonder what happened to society in order to feed ourselves and our children with such poisons. The reality is very frightening and the DVD helps us realize the size of the problem: a very cheap school budget per student on one side (37 p), children and parents with zero food education on the other side. Put those together and you get the perfect mix for sick, overweight children having problems to focus in class and eventually developping other types of problems.
I admire Jamie for taking this challenge as his own mission. As a chef, it must hurt him deeply to see such lack of interest for good healthy and balanced food. Will he manage to change habbits and bring some spark into those children? I won't tell you...you'll have to watch the DVD for that ;o)
