Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has announced the very first Food Revolution Day. Taking place in May 19, the day encourages families, schools and community groups to host local events to promote healthy eating and raise awareness of childhood obesity.
"Together we can change the way people eat by educating every child about food, giving families the skills and knowledge to cook again, and motivating people to stand up for their rights to better food," the Food Revolution Day website reads.
Oliver is also releasing a toolkit to help families become healthy eaters. Check out a few of the tips below:
- Involve kids in grocery shopping
- Plan meals ahead
- Avoid buying food that have ingredients you can't pronounce
- Don't ban treats or you'll increase their appeal
- Visit farmers' markets and buy local
