This past weekend, my sister-in-law was talking about a segment that she and her husband watched on TED. TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading (got this from their website). TED is an abbreviation that stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design and brings many people from different industries to their conference to talk about a particular subject. This week Pete Larson of Runblogger mentioned a video that his colleague and friend saw on TED. It happened to be Jaime Oliver of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution that was unfortunately cut short because of what he was airing about the food our children were eating (or not eating) at home and the school system. These children were unable to visually recognize what one might consider common every day vegetables. This is sad! Wholesome foods don't come from boxes or fast foods; they come from the soil, the seeds we or the farmers plant. It's no wonder the United States leads in obesity rates in 2012 and has for quite some time.
Take some time and listen to Jamie Oliver's TED talk below. It's something we all should listen to which can help us improve our lives and prolong our children's lives as well.
