5 Ted Talks on Feeding Your Family

I find watching Ted Talks incredibly inspiring. And there are so many. And they are short. So I devour them readily.

My particular favourite area of research and learning is about food, and about how I can feed my family better.

One of the first Ted Talks I ever watched was Jamie Oliver. His talk is incredibly moving and passionate – and therefore so inspiring. That easily makes it on to my list.

But there are others too – some that simply offer an alternative viewpoint, or they explain a scientific concept in simple and easy to understand language.

The speakers are all passionate about their particular niche – and they easily captivate the audience: including you.

Ted Talks are motivational and inspiring. These are my Top 5 Ted Talks on how to better feed your family - including the captivating Jamie Oliver.

Here are my Top 5 Ted Talks – all about feeding your family.

#1 – Jamie Oliver

This is perhaps my favourite Ted Talk. I love his passion, his nervousness, his enthusiastic plea for us to feed our children better. His talk is captivating – and it will make you think about what you feed your child.

#2 – Sam Kass: Want Kids to Learn Well? Feed them well

I love the connection here between education and food. Sending kids to school with a full belly is critical – but it is more about what we feed them. Getting them nutrient dense food – and giving them the best start as they open their minds to all that knowledge.

It does have an American slant – because it does mention their infamous school lunches – but the message is still clear: feed them well.

#3 – Mark Bittman: What’s wrong with what we eat

This is just an eye-opener. Mark Bittman is great to listen to – and he has a strong statement to make. He links food to the climate, and to the environment. He takes our kitchens global – and really gets us to consider the impact our food choices have on the world. Be prepared to be shocked. And be prepared to be asked to change.

#4 – Tristram Stuart: The global food waste scandal

Something that is ‘current’ due to the recent documentary “War on Waste” – this Ted Talk is right on the money. Another eye-opener. Such an incredible point – that food is produced but we actually don’t need it. The talk is fact based – and those facts will blow your mind. Why do we produce so much food, if we do not need it?

#5 – Graham Hill: Why I’m a Weekday Vegetarian

There has been a meatfree movement for a while now. Do you adopt it in your house? Meatless monday, vegetable heavy meals, or just vegetarian completely? This talk might just make you rethink your intake of meat.
