Jamie’s School Dinners

New Series: Jamie’s School Dinners

Food Channel – Sunday 24 June, 6.30pm

Jamie Oliver tackled the shameful state of school dinners in one of the most acclaimed TV series ever. Kids were eating piles of processed junk and recoiled at the sight of fresh vegetables. And the terrible diet was leading to a health time-bomb, with soaring rates of obesity and hugely increased risks of heart disease and other life-threatening conditions for British children. So Jamie took over school meals in Greenwich and tried to persuade the Government to improve standards. With dinner lady Nora Sands he showed that kids could be fed fresh, nutritious meals.
