Cartoon celebrity chef

comments

Jamie Oliver is continuing his mission to promote healthy eating to children in new way. Aardman Animations, the company behind Wallace and Gromit, have turned him into a cartoon character. Titled Little J, the cartoon series will follow a 10 year old Oliver on his quest to becoming a fantastic chef. The cartoon will be aimed at seven to 11 year olds, and features several wacky characters including a depressed ham, mad scientist Eggs Benedict and a “spiritual-cum-culinary guru” called Nonna. Oliver said: “I really want to pass on a little knowledge in a fun way, to really connect to the younger kids. I can’t tell you how passionate I am about kids and food.” The cartoon aims to inspire young kids to think positively about healthy eating.
