Shocking Video: You Have to See it to Believe It

And I've seen this video about 20 times. Take a look.

If it were one child who didn't know the answer to Jamie Oliver's questions, I'd be stunned... but a whole classroom? And did you notice the teacher? She seems like a very nice lady, but she finds the whole thing amusing. If it were my class, I'd hang up my chalk and retire from teaching then and there.

That really boggles my mind - that not one kid got one vegetable right. So sad...

So sad! I'd blame the parents for that one! Thanks for sharing! I think I'll post it on my blog! :) Shay

Wow, that really is amazing. I just can't imagine a child that doesn't know what a tomato or potato is.

When I have children - the first food I am going to teach them about is KALE. I didn't know about Kale until my early twenties - I can only imagine what would have happened differently in my life if I had started eating Kale at 2!

Lol! You could even name a kid Kale. Not a bad name :)

Hey, France,
I saw his TED talk quite a while ago. Really inspiring!

That's funny in a sad sort of way.

My bigger concern would be the parents. But I guess if your only encounter with vegetables is in the form of spaghetti sauce, french fries and apple juice, what are you to expect? My 21 month old already knows what an apple, carrot, raisin, grape, banana, etc. are. She was stealing raw onions from my cutting board and going "Mmmmm!"
