In Australia, we have no tradition of school dinners of the kind that people in the United Kingdom are used to.
So while Jamie Olivers current campaign of giving kids school dinners is admirable, there are parts of it that are puzzling to me (and my cousin, who is also Australian).
There seem to be 2 main points that he is pushing:
1) Kids should stop eating junk and eat healthy food. No argument there.
2) They should be having a hot meal at lunchtime.
What the fuck?
Generations of Australian schoolchildren have managed perfectly well on sandwiches.
Why does it have to be hot?
This may sound like a minor complaint about an important issue, but surely if he just got over the "hot" part of his campaign then half the trouble would be solved.
