Jamie’s School Dinners – First Impressions
An interesting concept for a show… improve the quality of nutrition in school meals. A huge problem right off the bat was that the students were still very much attached to the junk food they had been offered in school before he arrived. He just started serving healthy food in the lunch room and to no ones surprise (but Jamie), only one student picked up his healthy food. Perhaps a bit of education for the students about healthy food would trigger more interest in the new healthy menu. Without the education piece, having healthy food is mostly a waste of money because children don’t like to try the unknown.
