PART I – READING COMPREHENSION
Read the text carefully.
Hi Kevin! Guess what? My new school is very famous – Kidbrooke School, in
Greenwich! Do you remember that TV series “Feed me Better” with Jamie Oliver? Well,
Jamie Oliver was in my school for a year, preparing and teaching us how to cook
healthy food in the school canteen. Now the food is delicious and healthy!
My friends told me he was really amazing!! Can you believe some students didn’t know what a carrot
or a potato was before this TV series? The students ate chips, fried fish and hamburgers at home and
at school. Jamie Oliver began a campaign to ban unhealthy food in British schools and he started
here. He explained to the students that a good nutritious meal at lunchtime improves their
behaviour and concentration in the classroom. Besides, if we eat too much fast food, we will probably
have diabetes, heart diseases and be obese. Did you know that the UK has the highest rate of
childhood obesity in Europe? School meals are very important and now everybody loves eating in the
school canteen. We eat soup, fresh salad and fruit every day! What about your school dinners?
Love
Andrea
Hello, Andrea! Is that your school? Wow! I saw that TV series.
It was impressive and it changed my eating habits. Last year,
my school started a new project too, our school garden club.
There are 50 students involved. We are learning how to plant
fruit and vegetables and then we eat them. Now we eat fruit
and vegetables every day in the school canteen. At first I didn’t
like it, but now I recommend it to everyone.
