Food Revolution Day

Let's get kids excited about food!

Food Revolution Day is a global day of action to keep cooking skills alive.

It’s about celebrating the importance of cooking good food from scratch and raising awareness of how it impacts our health and happiness – everyone should know about food and it starts with getting kids food smart, making cooking fun and inspiring a love of food that will last a lifetime.

Food Revolution Day is a campaign by the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation. With over 42 million children worldwide now overweight or obese by the age of five, Jamie Oliver believes it’s up to everyone – governments, businesses, schools, parents to work together to help reverse this preventable situation. By 2030, it’s predicted that 41% of the world population will be overweight or obese. So we best get on this issue ASAP!

As many of you know, over the past few years, Jamie has been passionate about promoting food education for kids and young people whether in schools or at home, and believes that we all “have a duty to teach children to understand what food does to their bodies if we’re going to make any progress in tackling obesity and diet-related disease.”

Getting kids cooking from as early as possible helps them to develop an essential life skill which will have a huge impact on their future health and well-being” says Oliver.

This year the global Food Revolution Day Ambassadors want as many people as possible to get involved – showing children how important it is to understand where food comes from, how to cook it and how it affects our bodies.  That involvement can be as simple as helping a child to cook a meal from scratch or getting them to try a new ingredient.

We have the ability to enact change and make a significant difference with our collective voice and reach.

 Sign this petition and then share it with the hashtag of #FoodRevolutionDay.

Let's do this!
