Jamie Oliver: Why food education matters

Jamie Oliver of Naked Chef fame delivered a powerful talk this month at TED about his anti-obesity project in Huntington, W.Va.

His point: Set a new standard for “fresh, proper food” at school, at home. Major brands must invest in food education.  “It’s profoundly important that every single American child should leave school knowing how to cook 10 recipes that will save their lives.”
