Food Revolution Day is a educational initiative that aims to put an end to childhood obesity. Founded by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, the campaign hopes to make practical food education a mandatory requirement in elementary schools across the globe. Oliver's recent Food Revolution Day ad invites the public to sign a petition -- encouraging global leaders to instill food education programs into the traditional school curriculum -- and to share their thoughts via social media.

As obesity rates and weight-related illnesses become more common among children, parents are becoming more aware of what they are feeding their kids. Jaime Oliver's initiative aims to teach kids to grow their own food and illustrates the importance of a balanced diet to students from a young age.
