Food Revolution Day - Jamie at school with children eating and cooking

Food Revolution Day is an opportunity to shout about food education, get inspired to cook great food from scratch, and be empowered to help change the global obesity crisis.

Diet-related diseases are rising at an alarming rate, and it is now more important than ever before to ensure that our children know about food, where it comes from and how to cook it.

Worldwide, there are more than 42 million children under the age of 5 who are overweight or obese. With staggering facts like this in mind, Jamie is calling upon the G20 Leaders to get practical cooking on the curriculum for schoolchildren.


This year’s signature Food Revolution Day recipe is the Squash it sandwich. Or, you could give one of our other Food Revolution Day recipes a go. Here are some of our favourites…
