Jamie Oliver's TED Talk: Teach Kids About Food

Have you seen this yet? The TED Talks were held earlier this month, and our favorite naked chef was there to present his wish: to teach kids about food. This was a much more serious Jamie than we're used to seeing - though he did manage to slip in a few glib remarks! Take a look for yourselves below.

His talk focused on childhood obesity and the need to teach people to cook again. For those who don't know, Jamie Oliver has spent the last several months doing work (and filming a new show) in West Virginia, the obesity capital of the United States. He drew on this experience during his talk to illustrate exactly what kinds of problems he's talking about and how his solution can work.

His TED wish is simple: For everyone to create a strong, sustainable movement to educate every child about food, to inspire families to cook again, and to empower people everywhere to fight obesity.

Do you think he got his message across?
