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

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.

The Case for a Sugar Tax Is as Strong as It Is Urgent

Some of the critics of the tax have said that this is a step too far and product labelling would give parents the knowledge they need and allow them to make an informed choice but as Jamie Oliver, the celebrity chef and food campaigner has said "the time for gentle words has passed. We need to be bold". I couldn't agree more because the safety of our children is at stake. This is a step change in improving the nation's health and will save lives.

Sugar Ain't Sweet Jeremy Hunt

Sugar is and will always be a treat, just like a glass of wine or the occasional cigarette but when there are equally bad effects on the health then surely its time that we call a cut on the amount that we consume. It may taste sweet initially, but the long term effects which aren't being showed to us should make you feel bitter.

Jamie Oliver's Call for 'Sugar Tax' Ignores the Real Public Health Issues

Scott Knox | Posted 22.10.2016 | UK Lifestyle

Sensationalist headlines around Jamie Oliver calling for a sugar tax are not helpful for the public health debate, as it makes the situation seem far too simplistic, when life never is. In the 1970s and 80s the health message was that fat was bad and the people should move their eating habits in the direction of carbohydrates.
