Is cookery in crisis?
The rise of junk food and bad eating habits mean that this could be the first generation in which children are expected to live shorter lives than their parents.
Jamie Oliver is a celebrity chef with a mission. With Jamie's Ministry of Food, his new Channel 4 TV show, he wants to get the nation off processed food and re-teach us how to quickly cook good, basic, healthy food from scratch, passing it on to family and friends.
The Ministry of Food that the series takes its name from was set up after the Second World War. It helped teach an entire generation the necessary skills to prepare home cooked meals from a few good ingredients.
