You know why the kids don't eat much of their food? Note that they were throwing away a lot before Jamie started cooking. They're filling up on sugary milk. I have 7 nieces and nephews... if you give them a high sugar or any calorie drink with their meal, most of their food doesn't get touched. I know that 1 cup of milk has 12g of sugar, which = 1 tablespoon. Add chocolate to that, you're looking at 25g-30g or so. But it doesn't stop there, those bottles that were served to them, they held about 2 cups. Most of the kids don't drink it all, but most of the bottles being tossed were half full. That's a lot of sugar. Water should be the only option served at lunch. Kids don't get enough water these days, too much sugar juice, milk, and soda.

jessvogel85 - I think the kids were just going along with it. Jamie made it sound exciting to eat the nasty parts of the chicken. Also, one kid raised his hand, the other boys saw it and raised theirs, then the girls saw and raised theirs. It was more like monkey see, monkey do.

If anyone missed one or both of the episodes, they're available on the ABC web site. I'm watching the 2nd one now.

When they were waiting for the test results to see if that boy had diabetes was so incredibly sad. I was fighting back tears. Simply because he was young and clearly did not do this to himself. So sad to see the pain in the parents eyes knowing that they have contributed to their sons declining health.

I watched the first episode, missed the 2nd. I was irritated how up on their high horse the lunch ladies were. When they went head to head serving baked chicken vs pizza, the ladies didn't give a dang about the nutritional aspect, they just wanted to win. I can't believe how unconcerned the ladies were about the ingredients list on the boxes of the food they were serving. Even if Jamie didn't change anything in that school or that town, then maybe parents who watch the show will demand change in their children's schools. They could still serve pizza, but not for breakfast and maybe one with pure ingredients (whole wheat crust, low-sugar pizza sauce, low-fat mozzarella, vegetables on top). Kids are picky and need a chance to warm up to change. No wonder they wanted the pizza, it was heavily processed and that's what they're used to.

This show sparked a huge discussion at the lunch table at work. A small minded co-worker said "They should just buy fruits and vegetables and eating fast food is way more expensive." To say something like that ignores all of the socioeconomic and lifestyle factors that contribute to these people's eating habits. It really bothered me that she couldn't look beyond her own choices.

I don't think Jamie Oliver is saying there is a fatty foods addiction. Its just more convenient for people to pop frozen food in the oven and call it a night, so he wants to show people that there are much better options out there, and even though they may take longer to prepare its better for your health in the long run.

I saw his presentation at Ted. I like the idea, but I'm, I guess, a little pessimistic right now about it. It's difficult to change eating habits of thousands of people.

No, and this whole food thing is getting outta hand. Now fatty foods are an addiction, what's next? Give me a freaking break..this country has an addiction for everything. Tiger Woods sex addiction, but lookout here comes Jesse James with this tattooed babe addiction, then there's Donald Trump with with money addiction and dear, sweet Heidi with her plastic surgery addiction. I could go on and on and on, but I gotta go puke from all the BS that being crammed down my throat.

Watched it and the chicken nugget experiment was able to disgust and disappoint me at the same time. How could the kids still want chicken nuggets?!?!
