The Food Revolution

If you haven't already done so, please sign Jamie Oliver's petition.

While I don't think it's the perfect diet, I agree that it's so much better than the diets that our children are subjected to these days.  This will be a huge step up.

I have attended PTA meetings where the discussion of removing vending machines or eliminating the snack bar treats get squashed because "our school's ____ program needs the money," so I know it can be very frustrating.

It will take a big name, a big program, AND a grassroots effort to get things moving in a better direction.  This is it.  Don't miss the chance to improve our kids' lives because you really want things to be paleo, primal, vegetarian, vegan, organic, local grown, or whatever.  There will never be the perfect plan, but there is a perfect opportunity, and this is it. So do it.

If you haven't had the chance, watch this when you've got 20 minutes to spare.  It's good stuff.
