I’m sure that people who read my blog regularly will know that I’m a real foodie. I love to cook, share recipes and entertain my friends and family with regular dinner parties. So when I read about Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day, which is been held on the 19th May 2012 across the world, I was interested to see what my favourite TV chef has planned.

Jamie is renowned for being passionate about getting people, specifically children, to eat a healthy and notorious diet. He’s previously worked on projects both in the UK and in the United States that actively helped families, school children and communities to eat healthier.

Now Jamie Oliver is using the power of people to make a change to the world’s unhealthy food habits. He wants foodies from across the globe to come together and share their skills, knowledge and enthusiasm for food to raise awareness of how easy healthy food is to prepare and more importantly how delicious it is to eat.

Anyone can take part in Food Revolution Day. You can host an event- dinner party, BBQ, tasting session, cookery class, food parties/festival- or go along to an existing event it’s completely up to you. The point is that we make and share healthy foods, teach children where produce comes from and start to understand the advantages of cooking at home rather than opting for unhealthy take-outs or restaurant meals.

As I’m sure you can imagine the response to Jamie’s Food Revolution Day has been phenomenal. At present 551 cities and 57 countries are involved with 397 public events and 434 dinner parties taking place on Saturday. These events hope to raise funds for more schooling toward food education in schools and colleges where food basics should be unfortunately aren’t been taught to children and young adults.

As someone who loves food and cooked as a child with my mother (I believe it’s important to get kids in the kitchen from a young age), I think that Food Revolution Day is a great idea. Not only will it help educate people and further their skills but it’s a great opportunity for foodies like me to learn more about foods from across the world as The Food Revolution Day website allows guests to post their own recipes making it a brilliant resource for finding authentic recipes from all corners of the globe.

If you want to get involved check out the website where you can search for an event near you or register to host your own. But importantly read the facts about how major an issue the world’s unhealthy attitude towards food is. The facts are shocking- 43 million children under 5 are overweight- the reality of the issue will encourage you ‘stand up for real food’ once and for all.
