Jamie's Meals in Minutes does its job: It makes you hungry for whatever Oliver's making on the show, as well as making you think you could possibly whip up this stuff yourself, as the cooking techniques tend towards the simple. All the vegetables and fruit used on the show looks glowing and yummy, and Oliver himself is so enthused over the flavor of a crunchy raw squash or a bite of sweet corn that watching may encourage your own produce appreciation.

The food is exactly the kind of stuff you'd expect the archenemy of pink slime to cook: salads, fruit-based desserts, light on the meat, lots of seafood. It's food that kids may or may not appreciate, so don't tune in expecting "meals for the whole family" in 30 minutes. Unless you have a child who doesn't mind chopped bird chiles and prawns with all their legs on.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
