Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution

Jamie Oliver tried to bring a "food revolution" to middle America. But the real revolution happened after he left.
Food is a very interesting topic to explore. I have been focused on wound care every single day for the past eight years. In wound healing, our hospital partners across the country are treating patients dealing with type 2 diabetes and obesity.
Today is Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day and the theme this year is "Getting Kids Excited About Food." To mark the occasion, here are the top five reasons why you should invite your kids into the kitchen and just embrace the chaos.
If you have a picky eater who's well out of toddlerhood, do not despair! Whether you've gotten a bit off track with meals or are just starting to introduce solid foods, now is the perfect time to get going in the right direction.

As we countdown the final days of the Healthy Steps to Albany competition, I have another challenge, for all of our children, their schools and families: keep it going.
When I met with Jamie Oliver's staff in London last summer -- an information session, not a consult -- I thought the project sounded kind of arrogant but knowing nothing about reality television, I was curious to see how it would go.
