Jamie Oliver's TED Prize wish: Teach every child about food | Video on TED.com

This post is for parents and teachers to view. It's a speech about the need to stop eating foods that you see on TV, processed foods that will kill you and your children before your time.

Having seen this video, I'm going to make sure we do a little more to teach cooking skills in kindergarten. How to make oatmeal from oats. How to make popcorn without a microwave. You know. We already are doing things in the garden, in the classroom. But we can do more. We must do more.



Once you see this video, you'll understand one more reason why I believe that test scores are simply a totally inadequate keyhole through which to view what schools ought to do.
