Synopsis: Jamie Oliver comes to LA to educate Americans that what they have been feeding their children in schools and at home is killing them. "Food Revolution" has recently been shooting footage in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) trying to educate the population on unhealthy meals such as lunch items like sugar-laden brownies, pastries and chocolate milk as well as carb-filled pizza. Schools should try to serve more nutritional foods to children. During the first episode, Jamie Oliver fills an entire school bus with the equivalent of all the sugar that's in the flavored milk that goes into the schools in a week. The bus is overflowing, as it cannot contain the 57 tons of sugar!

Main Digest

Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution is Back for Seconds with Season 2 - The Emmy award-winning series returned to take on Los Angeles.

This article is part our digest of 77 publications relating to Nutrition and Healthy Food that include:

The first series of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution (also called Jamie's American Food Revolution in the United Kingdom) premiered on ABC on March 21, 2010, Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Huntington America, and the show was nominated for the Do Something TV Show Award from the VH1 Do Something Awards for its efforts to promote healthy eating at public schools. The show also won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Reality Program.

Jamie Oliver is now back with his second series on ABC TV, crusading for healthier food for everyone. In the new season, Jamie comes to LA to try to convince Americans that what they've been feeding their kids is slowly killing them.

The Food Revolution is about saving America's health by changing the way people eat. It's not just a TV show; it's a movement.

In America, Jamie's turning his attention to helping people of all ages change their eating habits by learning to cook and choosing fresh food over processed in schools, homes, workplaces, and even restaurants.

"Food Revolution" has recently been shooting footage in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) trying to educate the population on unhealthy meals such as lunch items like sugar-laden brownies, pastries and chocolate milk as well as carb-filled pizza. Schools should try to serve more nutritional foods to children.

Unfortunately with so many U.S. schools on tight budgets and children who get free lunches, and not having much to eat at home, the American schools are trying to fill the children's stomachs in the least expensive ways possible

When kids drink chocolate and strawberry milk every day at school, they're getting nearly two gallons of extra sugar each year. LAUSD is the second-largest school district in America serving around 122 million meals a year, but because the show has been denied access to LAUSD the show is fanning out to cover a wider area of LA and its eating habits.

During the first episode, Jamie fills an entire school bus with the equivalent of all the sugar that's in the flavored milk that goes into the schools in a week. The bus is overflowing, as it cannot contain the 57 tons of sugar!
