Jamie Oliver Awarded $100,000 to Improve Americans’ Diets

We’ve long been enamored with “The Naked Chef” Jamie Oliver (can you blame us?).

So we couldn’t have been more thrilled when he decided to take on the monumental task of improving Americans’ diets, beginning with the residents of Huntington, West Virgina.

To help him accomplish his goal, CNN reported today that Jamie was awarded with a $100,000 grant by the nonprofit group TED. In his acceptance speech, Jamie said it is his wish “to have a strong, sustainable movement to educate every child about food, to inspire families to cook again and to empower people everywhere to fight obesity.”

We can’t wait to see how Jamie puts the award money to good use. Jamie, we just hope you rely on registered dietitians to help your wish come true. And if you’re recruiting, we know two dietitians who’d be happy to help you out!
