  Jamie Oliver takes on school food
Updated 20 April 2004, 17.36
Jamie Oliver
TV chef Jamie Oliver has taken on his biggest challenge ever - making school dinners tasty and good for you!

His new show, Jamie's School Dinners, will see him join the kids and kitchen staff of Kidbrooke School in Greenwich, to try and improve the meals there.

Jamie said: "For some kids it's their only proper meal of the day, so it's crucial that school lunch is not just a load of old rubbish."

Filming starts next week as Jamie tries to turn school stodge into posh nosh.

Many people are worried about what kids eat, and school food has been criticised for being bad for you.

Jamie said: "I've been concerned for some time now, so I've devoted most of the rest of 2004 to actually doing something about school food."

It's hoped the lessons that Jamie learns in the school canteen can be applied in schools around the country.

Until then, you'll have to put up with chips!
