Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution

Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution (retitled Jamie's American Food Revolution in the United Kingdom) is a television series which premiered on ABC on March 21, 2010. The show, which is produced by English chef Jamie Oliver and Ryan Seacrest, follows Oliver as he attempts to reform the school lunch programmes and attitudes about food in a U.S. city.

Self-study activity:
Watch the trailer for the series and say whether the statements below are true or false.

1 One third of the population is considered obese in Huntington.
2 Jamie Oliver transformed UK's schools food programme.
3 Some people are pessimistic about the results of the programme in Huntington.
4 Huntington has a population of 40,000.
5 Huntington children are expected to live more than their parents.

Remember that you can always activate the CC option on the YouTube player to get an approximate transcript of the clip, but this transcription is sometimes a bit inaccurate.

If you are intrigued about Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, you can watch all the episodes on YouTube. The first season had six episodes, all of which are divided into three parts on YouTube. I have just included the first part of the first episode here.
