On Israeli television I saw the "Naked Chef" Jamie Oliver deliver a petition to PM Tony Blair calling for better meals at Britain's schools. Sky News asked its website visitors for comments, and I especially liked this one :
I remember school meals being good, filling and tasty. However, I'm now 40, weighing in at 18st and suffering from diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol problems, so maybe Mr Oliver has a point!P Ford, West Sussex
