6. Jamie’s School Dinners
Chef Jamie Oliver tries to get kids to eat healthier food and from eating junk food. You will be appalled to see what kids eat everyday for lunch! Our favorite part is when the kids are unable to identify various vegetables but successfully identify logos of fast food chains like mcdonalds!

7. Supersize Me
If you love McDonald’s or Jollibee you’d better take a look at this documentary film of a man who ate only McDonald’s food for every meal as an experiment.
Have fun guys!!
Have you seen Food, Inc.? It’s a documentary based in the US, but it gives a very interesting perspective on the way food is made these days (some of which inevitably find its way to our tables). Not for the faint of heart =)
yes we’re aware of food inc but what we were going for in the article was stuff that you could enjoy and watch over and over. 🙂 When we do food movies again we will include that along with some other stuff.
