Guilty Dad? Not Me... But Regrets, I Have a Few

Now I have reached that point in my life when I try to remember what it was like to watch one daughter see off all-comers at netball, and the other complete her gymnastics routine in a packed hall. The memories are there, because there were rare occasions when I did tear myself away from work. But they are not as sharp as I would like, perhaps because my mind was often on other things, my mobile phone clutched tightly in my hand.

Why Empowering Parents To Cook With Their Kids Helps Families To Thrive

Jamie Oliver | Posted 15.07.2016 | UK Parents

I had no idea then just how much of a phenomenon The Naked Chef would become, and looking back to that time, I never would have thought then that I'd be sitting here today writing for The Huffington Post and kicking off their Thriving Families month. So it turns out that I did inspire quite a few people, and many of them were mums and dads. I'll never forget being chased down the street by this big, muscley bloke one day and when he caught up with me, I genuinely thought my days were numbered and he was going to punch me but he simply smiled and said: "My missus said I should start cooking because of you and if I'd seen you a few weeks ago, I would have lumped you. But actually, I'm really enjoying cooking and I'm better than you now!" That was one of those moments where I started to understand just how powerful food can be in changing people's lives for the better.

Inspired by Jamie's attempts at "unpacking" breastfeeding data and launching a much needed campaign to support women all around the world in the correct use of their mammary glands, a group of hard nosed Breastfeeding Militants have come together to form the "Breastfeeding Boobs Squad" (BBS).

We Need A Global Food Revolution

Britain has now joined Mexico and France in taxing businesses when they compromise the health of our children. I don't believe it's anti-business. In the UK, kids and teenagers' single largest source of sugar is from sugary sweetened drinks and with one-third of kids overweight or obese, these statistics cannot be taken lightly anymore. Of course, industry totally disagree - what they all agree on is personal responsibility and self-regulation, and look where that got us. The announcement of a sugary drinks tax has sent ripples around the world, especially in countries where they're also struggling with childhood obesity.

Dear Jamie, You Missed the Trick

So, dear Jamie, you totally missed the trick here. Don't try and convince mothers that breast is best. You will either be met with resistance from those that chose to - or had to - bottle feed, or will end up preaching to the preachers.

Media Manages to Shut Jamie Oliver Up Over Breastfeeding. Nice One.

As soon as Jamie Oliver opened his mouth, it was open season for bashing the breastfeeding supporters once again. To be fair, his choice of words was poor. 'It's easy, it's more convenient, it's more nutritious, it's better, it's free,' he said. Well, it's certainly free.

Jamie's Right - We Need to Talk About Breastfeeding

I wrote about the various myths surrounding breastfeeding, which stem from Chinese Whispers passed from generation to generation. Frustratingly, breastfeeding is still widely misunderstood by both society and also by many health care professionals - another subject I raised in my article.

Thank goodness for you Jamie, why hadn't we thought of that before. You are right, it really is that simple, let's get all Mums breastfeeding. Wow who knew that it would take a chef (not a Dr, midwife or nurse) who also happens to be a man, to point out that all Mums should be breastfeeding.

Why the Sugar Tax Is Great News

John Vincent | Posted 18.03.2016 | UK Politics
John Vincent

There has been a rise almost 10% in child hospital admissions for severe tooth decay in England over the last four years. Researchers have pointed to a strong correlation between area deprivation and the rate of tooth extraction. Which is why I find it bizarre that one of the main arguments deployed against the sugary drinks tax is that it will hit the poorest hardest. Irrespective of how much income people have, how is it morally sound to keep the prices of dangerous food low? Powerful companies spend a lot of money each year advertising to us and selling us sugary drinks that are giving us diabetes and more. They put them in front of us all day in train stations, newsagents, even leisure centres.It is time for society to protect itself and our children.
