Jamie Oliver shares with Warwick Academy why eating healthy is important
Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver was on hand to give Warwick Academy students a lesson in the importance of the culinary arts yesterday.
The students were taking part in Food Revolution Day, a campaign launched by Mr Oliver to demonstrate the importance of being able to cook and how it can impact health.
Food and Nutrition students watched a film by Mr Oliver explaining the campaign.
The school’s director of Development, Jane Vickers, said: “Learning about food and how to cook from scratch is one of the most valuable skills a child can ever learn.
This knowledge used to be passed down from generation to generation, but now, with an over-reliance on unhealthy convenience foods, millions of people lack the confidence and even the most basic skills to cook for themselves and their families.
By educating children about food in a fun and engaging way, we’re equipping them and future generations with the skills they need to live healthier lives.
Mr Oliver added: “Cooking is, without a doubt, one of the most important skills a person can ever learn and share. Once someone has that knowledge, that’s it — they’re set for life.”
