Subway Invites WVa School Children to Eat Fresh

WHEELING- Several West Virginia schools are getting a new menu this year thanks to two television personalities; Jamie Oliver and Jared Fogle. They've never met, but in a virtual tag-team effort they may be changing WVa public school meals forever.
In 2010, the UK's Jamie Oliver and his "Food Revolution" marched into Huntington, WV to battle bad eating habits. Jamie tried to educate students, teachers, administrators and parents on the value of good nutrition and the part it plays in a child's education, as well as their entire life. Huntington was chosen after being named "America's Fattest and Unhealthiest City" in a 2008 Associated Press article. Jamie threw out dumpsters full of junk food and fake meat, as well as hundreds of gallons of chocolate milk. It ended much like you might imagine. "We don't need some punk British chef tellin' us how to eat," said one young Huntington mother. "My boys are fat and happy! What's wrong with that?"
