As restaurantworkers we are partly and indirect responsible for what people eat. And although we (especially as waiter) have a little bit influence, I think it’s good to be aware that there’s a new health problem. The next generation (read the kids who are eating in MY restaurant are expected to live 10 years less than me.
Jamie Oliver, an English chef made me aware of this. I don’t know how I’ll put his words in practice, but I’ll keep it in mind. His wish:
I wish for your help to create a strong, sustainable movement to educate every child about food, inspire families to cook again and empower people everywhere to fight obesity.
