Did Jamie Oliver Just Score A Victory Over Crap Food In LA Schools?

While Jamie Oliver’s cameras never did make it inside the cafeteria of a Los Angeles school, it appears that his persistence to influence some type of change has paid off.

The celebrity chef’s “Food Revolution” reality series focused on the nation’s second largest school district during Season Two – but was swiftly denied in episode one by officials from going inside. That put a wrinkle in the show’s successful format of helping schools provide better nutrition to their students, but Oliver nonetheless continued throughout LA to spread the word. And after yesterday, it appears that LAUSD board members were listening.

The group voted 5-2 to remove flavored milk, corn dogs, chicken nuggets, and other breaded items from the menus over over 1,000 sites and replace them with more vegetarian offerings and fewer “fast food” options. Spinach tortellini in butternut squash sauce and California sushi rolls, along with many ethnic foods, are just some of the new foods students will see, according to the LA Times. Soy milk will also be available.

“This is a giant step forward for the health and future of 680,000 kids in Los Angeles, and leads the way for more school districts around the country to follow,” said Oliver in reaction to the vote.

Indeed, it appears that Oliver’s campaigning may have weighed heavily in the final vote, as one board member who voted against the changes (really?), suggested bitterly that the district was siding with “a TV chef who’s trying to get publicity”. Um yea, don’t you see how crappy your food is? Of course he’s trying to get publicity!

Boom! It worked. Where are we going next Jamie? Or are “Dancing with the Stars” repeats more important to ABC than a Season Three?
