Dysfunctional Governmental Food Department - Jamie Oliver Food Revolution Review - Day 384

his is a continuation to the blog Series review about Jamie Oliver's TV series - Food Revolution.

Thus, if you haven't already, I suggest watching Jamie Oliver's TV series - Food Revolution and read through the blog series where the question: Who is Responsible for our Children's Education? is asked.


Within this blog I will be focusing on the fourth problem that I've identified when watching the Food Revolution series - Dysfunctional Governmental Food and Health Department


As we know, what the children eat at school is dependent on specific guideline written by the Governmental food department which for instance, considers Chips as Vegetable as well as mash potatoes made from already made processed powder. With such "specific" guidelines and standards, it is no wonder that so many children suffers from overweight.


The food department also worry about children not drinking milk and so, they supply them with sugar milk with added colors and flavour to ensure that they will drink the milk. They forgot to mention though, that the amount of sugar in one flavoured milk contain twice the amount of Soda drinks - lots of sugar.


In the Food Revolution TV series, Jamie found out that the school changed the agreement with him to stop giving the kids the flavoured milk that would slowly kill them but to instead to give them real milk. Interestingly enough, despite of the fact that on the day that the kids only had one choice of milk, they all drank the milk, the food department was worry about it so they instead decided to give them the flavoured milk. So even when the physical evidence showed that there is no real reason to be concerned, the flavoured milk was back on the menu.

So - what is really going on? Why the government forces the children to develop bad eating habits, become overweighed and eventually obese?


As I've mentioned in my previous blogs, if you trace the money path, you'll find the answers. The food companies sponsor our politicians and supply them with the money and in return, the politicians would align the guidelines that would benefit the big corporations. Is there any consideration regarding health and the well being of the people? No. not at all.

Fantastic documentaries showing the relationship between the corporations and politics are:

Park Avenue: money, power and the American dream - Why Poverty?

Koch Brothers Exposed


So - the answers to our problems are right in front of us - If we want to change things in this world, politics is the way to do it so all we need to do is to make sure that our power doesn't go to the wrong hands but to instead, place ourselves in political positions so that we can direct our future, a future that is best for all.
