Complete edition of the celebrity chef's groundbreaking television series about the nutritional state of school dinners in Britain today. Taking charge of the provision of 20,000 school meals a day in one London borough, Jamie Oliver discovers exactly what children are eating, and explores different ways to improve their general diet, facing an uphill struggle to remove chips, pizzas and processed meat from the menu as he tries to introduce them to fresh produce, and the pleasures of cooking. There is also the option of watching the series in a special 'expletives deleted' mode.

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)
I was horrified to see how little the children knew about vegetables (and how much they knew about McDonalds et al!). Jamie has so much to do to save our next generation from themselves and from the high street junk vendors. Oddly enough I'd previously never had much time for Jamie Oliver: I'd always considered him to be something of a semi-literate and partially vocal clown, but after this, my attitude has clearly changed - he is the man to save a great many of the children (if only the politicians can be made to listen).
Oh and oddly enough the 'swear free' track (which it does have, if you really want it) is more annoying than the one with the 'f' words on it: it's like listening to a 'dance mix' of something!
Nonetheless, a copy of this DVD belongs in every home in the land.
Jamie I take my hat off to you! Once in a while the `small man' can take on the establishment. If the Queen has any sense, a knighthood should be coming your way before long.
I rented this dvd, but now its on my xmas list to buy! My son watched it (expletives deleted version!!) and now understands that his mum is not some raving harridan, but is actually concerned about his welfare and good health.
