Are you referring to the Food Revolution programme in the US? It's really good. He has also had past programmes in the UK such as School Dinners and Ministry of Food. He really is an advocate for people eating healthy.

Unfortunately, his restaurants (particularly Jamie's Italian) are not particularly allergy aware and there are nuts used in menu items. And at the Westfield location of Jamie's Italian (West London) they offer customers ice cream from a vintage van outside which serves products laced with nuts.

But to be fair, Jamie has never been an advocate for allergies, just healthy eating in general.

The only UK chef I know who is an advocate for allergies is Giorgio Locatelli, whose daughter suffers from multiple allergies.

Yes, that's the show. I don't watch much tv but have seen him a few times and always watch when surfing and see him....I will look to watch more of this now.....all of us were amazed when he asked kids what vegetables he was showing them and they just (for the most part) didn't know...that way very eye opening....and :frightened
