Jamie Oliver has begun waging war on childhood obesity in America during the second series premiere of his US Food revolution.
The 35-year-old British chef travelled to Los Angeles to campaign for improvements in children's eating habits and knowledge amid what he describes as an 'obesity crisis'.
But the Naked Chef got a major shock on arrival as officials shut him out of every school in the city's Unified Schools District because they said his efforts weren't welcome.
However, the father-of-four refused to give up and set about convincing dozens of parents to help him get school officials onside.
He spoke on Ryan Searest's popular morning radio show and held a rally at his Food Revolution headquarters, Jamie's Kitchen.
"They won't let me in their schools, which means it's war," he told viewers on Tuesday night's ABC premiere.
"In my whole career I've never been blocked from an institution. Now I need the parents to support me to help me get into those schools."
