Jamie Oliver gets a standing ovation at TED, after delivering a rousing and passionate presentation. He makes a powerful case for radically transforming our food system.

I feel deep gratitude for this ooooby community, who are building the future with every seed sown, knowledge exchanged and recipe shared.

Funny and passionate and angry all in the right places

Jamie doesn't mince words - feeding children bad food is child abuse.

Its silly that they worry about selling raw milk in New Zealand, but more people die from sugar related health issues than raw milk....

Also have a look at this book: http://www.journeytoforever.org/farm_library/price/pricetoc.html

He is right on the money, things have to change.

wow! I think Jamie is awesome!
how many people know that the national government of NZ recently repealed the ban on junk food in school canteens?
" Education Minister Anne Tolley said she had decided to remove the National Administration Guideline (5) which tells schools that "where food and beverages are sold on school premises, to make only healthy options available".
Mrs Tolley said this meant schools would no longer be required to act as "food police".
If that is the kind of leadership from the top then we are going backwards as a nation , (although the health education kids get in NZ schools around food must be at least better than the US judging by what he showed of those kids who can't identify a single vegetable!)
Yes Ooooby is helping to try and turn the tide.

Please leave a comment here, and let us know what you think. I was inspired by his directness and no nonsense telling it like it is. Jamie chose a few powerful facts to build the picture of a food system that has to change.
