With 42 million overweight or obese preschoolers globally, celebrity chef Jamie Oliver wants to get practical food education into school curriculum across the world.

“The bottom line is that the next generation will live shorter lives than their parents if nothing is done to rectify these alarming stats,” he says.

Oliver has talked about healthy food for kids in many media over the years, including on radio and on TED, but most recently he has started an online petition at change.org urging G20 governments to provide children with the life skills they will need to live healthier, more productive lives.

“I passionately believe this is every child’s human right,” says Oliver, “and I hope you agree.”

Looking for a million signatures, he is already over two thirds the way there. You can find the petition here.
