Byline: KEELEY BOLGER

IN THE 10 years since his landmark Jamie's School Dinners series, Jamie Oliver has campaigned far and wide. From intensive farming and obesity, to the nation's lack of cooking knowledge, the passionate chef has used his might and meddling to try to improve our awareness of issues surrounding grub.

"(People say), 'I won't have breakfast because that will save calories and I'm trying to lose a bit of weight', or, 'I'm too busy'," Jamie explains. "And then we get into the other story, where over the last 30 years, we've been completely brainwashed into thinking, 'You've got 45 seconds to pour some milk on some cereal in a bowl and that's all you deserve, so get on with it..."'
