Jamie's School Dinners

Jamie Oliver has set himself the challenge of a lifetime—to take charge of 20,000 school lunches a day across one of London's most demanding areas as he campaigns to ban junk foods in schools and stop students from eating a quarter of a ton of French fries a week. If he succeeds in transforming the way kids eat, Jamie will use this experience to create a blueprint for school meals across the country.

Jamie's School Dinners finds Oliver taking on the school meals service of a Council-run secondary school in Greenwich, a London borough, as well as spending a month working with primary kids in a severely deprived part of Durham. After finding out what young people are eating for lunch, how it's prepared, and how on earth you cook for hundreds of kids at a time, Oliver works with the students and catering staff to steer students away from processed, pre-prepared meals towards healthier and more exciting choices such as wraps, Thai curries and fish pies. Jamie prepares the new meals from scratch daily with fiery school dinner lady, Nora.

Host: Jamie Oliver

Restaurants and cooking are in Jamie Oliver’s blood, as his parents own and operate a successful pub/restaurant in Clavering, where he grew up. He attended Westminster Catering College at 16, where he completed his formal training. Jamie began a food revolution in Britain with Jamie’s School Dinners, prompting the British government to publicly commit to improving the quality of the country’s school meals. Jamie married his childhood sweetheart, Jools, in 2000. They live in London with children Poppy, Daisy, Petal and Buddy.
