Jamie Oliver's at it again!

You've heard of Jamie Oliver, right?

He's the British chef who single handedly changed his nation's school meals, who's hired street kids and turned them into world class chefs, who's tried to use social networking to teach entire towns to cook.

Now he's trying to create healthy kids' meals at hotels.

Lord knows healthy kid meals are tough to come by on the road. Usually all you'll see are staples such as chicken fingers and fries, grilled cheese and fries, hot dogs and fries, macaroni and cheese and maybe a pizza.

Well Jamie's now partnered up with Sweden's Scandic Hotels to revamp their nutritional fare and he's starting with the kids.

Good on you Jamie. Hopefully it's a trend that other hotels will jump on.

  1. Good for him. After being diagnosed as type 2 diabetic in February 2005 I became hyper aware of of good nutrition. I had to. I also became aware how difficult it is to get a decent healthy meal in just about any resultant in the US and Canada. I would love to see him have succeed. Maybe it could catch on in North America. Nah, probably not. Too much money in bad food.


  2. It's great to hear that the fight against unhealthy eating is being lead by such a celebrity- figure. Fast- food restaurants like McDonald's are having too much influence over our children's eating habits!

  3. i agree i think Jaymies doing a terriffic job educating people about the importance of healthy eating
