|Childhood obesity is a national health crisis and one shared increasingly by other nations. Take Britain for example. Jamie Oliver, the celebrity chef and best-selling cookbook author known as "The Naked Chef," is also a young father. Last year, he grew fed up with the junk food being served to British school children and embraced the issue as a personal mission. He spent the year doing everything he could to get the public's attention including dressing up like an ear of corn and shamed Tony Blair into making this an election issue. He redesigned British school lunches to include more locally-grown produce and retrained cafeteria workers to cook the food, not just simply to microwave frozen preparations.|
And Oliver, whose energy is infectious, seems to have succeeded in attracting attention. The U.K. Education Secretary Ruth Kelly soon after announced that junk food high in fat, salt or sugar would be banned in schools across England within a year.
Next, Oliver turned his attention to American schools. He came to the U.S. to stir up the same attention to nutritionally-challenged school lunch programs here. ABC News reports on Jamie Oliver's shenanigans in trying to convince both Brits and Americans that school lunches need a redesign. ABC News will also speak to Marian Nestle, a nutritionist who has spent a lot of time examining these issues.
