THE UK CHEF JAMIE OLIVER’S METHOD OF FOOD EDUCATION, STARTING WITH CHILDREN WORKS, CONFIRMED THE "SCHOOL OF FOOD SCIENCE & NUTRITION" IN LEEDS. THOSE WHO PARTICIPATE IN "MINISTRY OF FOOD" COURSES EAT FEWER SNACKS AND MORE FRUITS AND VEGETABLES

The globally famous chef, television personality and above all, the creator and promoter of change and a new era for nutrition in schools in the UK, one of the countries where childhood obesity is a problem, Jamie Oliver, has been involved in a global battle to spread the culture of healthy eating for many years. His methods work, as the research conducted by Janet Cade of the "School of Food Science & Nutrition" of the University of Leeds has confirmed. The food approach Oliver has proposed, a sort of "back-to-basics" has positively influenced the eating habits of those who follow him.
Participants are invited to significantly increase their intake of fruit and vegetables, reduce the amount of snacks and learn new ways to cook food.
“The positive changes that emerge immediately after taking the course increase significantly even six months later”, assured Cade, “and when we analyzed the results by gender we found that men benefit the most”.
Oliver launched his courses entitled "Ministry of Food" in 2008, claiming to want to inspire the nation to prepare tasty, healthy and nutritious food on any budget. At the moment, there are four independent "MoF" centers in the UK, as well as awareness courses in Australia and the United States. And now, the scientific study, published in the journal "Public Health Nutrition", is promoting this approach in their study conducted on nearly 800 people who participated in "MoF" courses between 2010 and 2014.
For example, the study found that those who followed the courses increased the number of servings of fruits and vegetables from 2.7 to 3.4. And, when 500 of the participants were interviewed six months later, the average number of servings of fruits and vegetables consumed daily had increased to 4.1. The amount of snacks dropped from 2 per day to 1.7 and 6 months later had dropped to 1.1.
Jamie Oliver said, “The "Ministry of Food" is the ability to give people the knowledge and confidence they need to feed themselves and their families in a better way. The beauty of this project is that people also help others to create delicious, fresh and nutritious food that does not cost a fortune. This important study shows that teaching people how to cook works and makes a really big difference”.
Especially if you start with kids: “I think that school”, Oliver told WineNews (http://goo.gl/vMkOhz), “is a fantastic place to start educating children about food, which I say as a parent of four children. The best thing you can do is have fun with food, because food is fun, there's nothing to be scared of. What we would like to do, both at school and at home, is to inspire children about food, teach them where it comes from, what effects it has on the body. The task for parents and the government is to ensure that children immediately make the right nutrition choices”.
